    it was clear he was inexperienced with playing to large crowds, but he was solid. i'd be more interested in seeing him in a couple years when he's had time to sharpen his performances a bit.

    Much much better than performance than I expected. I'm not familiar with his stuff but there was one song about half way through that had a fuzzy, shoegazer vibe to go along with his airy, lilting voice. I really liked it. And yea, lots of girls.

    Side note- I did try initially to catch Gotye. But that tent was just insane. I have never seen a tent as packed as the one for Gotye.

    I'm sure it was pretty empty after he played "Used to Know."

    Seriously. We left after about 20 minutes of The Weekend. After nimbly wading through the crowd for 5 minutes, we were still at least 10 feet back of the left side of the tent. As his performance continued, there were people stacked up almost to the Gobi. If there were to be any stage changes for Weekend 2, I think switching Gotye and Girl Talk would probably be the best one.

    ^Agreed. I somehow doubt there will be any venue changes between weekends 1 and 2, but who knows?

    And I don't want to digress too much here since this is a thread for the Weeknd (who I very much recommend seeing), but at one point I was in the Beer Garden between the Main stage and the Outdoor stage and found myself choosing between Justice and Girl Talk while I finished my beer. Both were atrocious crap.

    Felt like his vocals weren't loud enough, although his voice sounds great live. Crowd response was okay I guess, but that didn't stop me from singing along and getting down. Best song that translated live was 'The Party and the After Party."

    This was such an awesome set. Thank god the bass was loud enough... Felt great getting in really close, and Morning > HoB/GTG > What You Need (acoustic) was a perfect ending. I really wanted to hear "Next" though. His band sounded fucking great even if he was a bit flat/off-key in a few parts

    Really great show. Played songs from all mixtapes. Even tried doing some micheal jackson type dance moves. i went to his 5th show but he's done many since then in preparation for coachella. It'll probably be his best show yet.
    This was in Waterloo, amazing show

    The Weeknd put on a great performance, but unless you were pretty close to the stage, all you could hear was people talking. The volume was ridiculously low and it sort of ruined the set for me... And it was one of my highly anticipated ones, too. I wanted to attack all the people who were talking, but I especially wanted to attack the sound booth for not moving the dial past 1.

    There will a million teenage girls screaming for the Weeknd. It was like the audience for the Beatles during the Ed Sullivan show.

    I really wanted to enjoy this, but i guess it just wasn't translating to me. The left side was packed at the beginning, but quickly dwindled after about the third song. Excellent voice and sound but we left maybe 4 songs in.

    I made it to the front of the soundboard and was very happy with my spot. It was loud enough and the crowd around me was perfect. Singing but not too obnoxiously and no general talking. I thought the music was perfect for sunset on the outdoor. He was off key at times but I hardly even noticed until watching the webcast. If any 2nd weekenders are contemplating seeing him, I suggest to get there early and move in closer.

    For a brand new artist, its pretty impressive that he could play a whole set and still have songs that I wished he played. I think he will be huge after a year of touring. Looking forward to the Fillmore show.

    I agree roast. Even though he didn't hit every single note, I loved the set and the band sounded perfect. Exactly what I wanted.

    Here's a recording of the set for whoever wants it. Really great, pretty sure it's from the webcast.

    Waited through Wild Flag, only to be packed in by teenage girls and their dudes, talking about when to pop their last adarol and drink the last of their booze. I circled back and got a great spot...Sorr for the shaky vids but the sound is really good i think.



    Really Impressed with the vocals and his stage persona. For the biggest show he's ever done, I give him a ton of props. This might have been my most anticipated set and I was not disappointed although my wife was cause she went to a dead Gotye tent. Going to see him in Seattle on the 11th.

    I watched him weekend 2 after making the mistake of attempting Gotye weekend 1 only to get pissed off by the crowd and wish that I had gone to the weeknd in the first place. Had a good spot in front of the soundboard so I was able to see/dance. He sounded great, solid set, although there were a few issues with his mic at times, but nothing major.

    The crowd was pretty funny, There was one girl on the rail who got shown on the cameras quite a bit. She was crying hysterically through the whole set like he was Justin Bieber or something. And people had like neon granny panties they were attempting to get on stage with their phone numbers written on them. I'm glad I decided to stay back where I could chill and dance without having spazzy horny chicks freaking out over every song crowded around.
