    Lots of fun and lots of dancing - it was also a perfect Freshers set.

    This set was great, especially the dance circle during the last 15 minutes

    Wonderful set!! The band was amazing and the crowd up front had great energy. Horn section - yes! Dancers - yes! The guy in the orange shirt stage front playing the percussion - yes!

    Could have definitely been louder, but when Seun came out and the band launched into Zombie... I don't think I danced that hard all weekend. Amazing set in the sun.

    were you on the right side of the sound booth wearing a fedora style hat and dancing with a cute lady with short hair? there was this couple right in front of me dancing their asses off.

    anyway, this set was fun! for knowing basically zilch about the band other than a few youtube videos i really enjoyed it. the impromptu conga line and then dance circle on stage-right were awesome to watch. really just the perfect fun-in-the-sun set.

    The proper order was Seun Kuti into Santigold. I watched all of Egypt 80 from the rail on the Outdoor and still caught the last 15 to 20 minutes of Santigold from a respectable distance.

    Lots of fun.

    Did any Sahara set have this much chemical free dancing?
