After Proxy showed us how to properly execute a daytime set in 95+ degree weather, there were several stand out acts in the 1-4 PM time slot this year that set the tone for the rest of the day's revelry. My personal favorites:

- The Twelves: hats off to them for getting the entire Sahara groovin' at 1:30 PM. this set was MUCH more enjoyable than their Hard set, probably the hardest I danced all weekend aside from Duck Sauce.

- Two Door Cinema Club: amazing energy from both the band and the crowd. I was amazed to see the Mojave jam packed and singing along during the whole set.

- Green Velvet: holy shit. this was my first time seeing him and it completely blew me away, Flash sounded incredible in the tent.

- Jack Beats: dancey wobbly madness. they really are pioneers of the wobble sound without sounding cheesy or played out. I ran into Niall later during the Chase and Status set, super nice guy.
