    Add Foxygen on Saturday to your list. Weird and wacky on the Outdoor in bright sunshine. And they have a few good songs. You won't forget it.

    Classixx was probably my favorite "act before 5"

    Jagwar Ma and Fishbone were also pretty amazing.

    And make sure to check out The Internet. Some chill early day grooves. Her voice is incredible and the band is really tight.

    I would recommend checking out the back to back Wye Oak/Austra sets on Friday. Wye Oak played a bunch of new material which was more electronic driven and Austra will have you kicking yourself for not having seen them before!

    On Saturday I would recommend another pair of back to Young & Sick and Bear hands. I don't have much to say about them other than that I was entertained and they filled their early time slot very well.

    There are a bunch of early sets I'd recommend on Sunday but I will focus on just one. This set stands out as one of my favorite pre 5pm sets of all time, falling in between M83's 2005 performance and Brandt Brauer Frick's set in 2011. The set I'm referring to is of course Factory Floor's! This sparsely attended set was one of my top 5 for the entire weekend. There was plenty of room to dance and they will have you dancing. I knew little of this band before they remixed a How To Destroy Angels song a while back and they have quickly become a staple in my regular rotation. I was surprised to learn that the vocals are live and sung by the guitarist who plays said guitar in every way except the conventional. I only wish they had shortened their songs to accommodate the festival set time slot. If there is any pre 5pm set to be marked as a "Can't miss" set it is Factory Floor's
