Saturday brought the biggest crowds of the weekend to downtown San Diego’s Wonderfront Music & Arts Festival. Once again, rap reigned supreme on the fest’s Seaport Village stages. J.I.D helped kick off the day with an incendiary performance, unleashing rapid-fire rhymes and uncaged bravado upon an enthralled crowd. Meanwhile, electronic rockers Phantogram reeled in the golden hour over at Embarcadero Park with their shimmering lights, rollicking energy, and dazzling synth-guitar prowess.
Later on, Long Beach rapper Vince Staples lit up the Main Stage with an arsenal of cold, calculated verses and cerebral beats. Fiery NYC rap group Flatbush Zombies popped off one of the rowdiest sets of the weekend, with fans upfront moshing and crowdsurfing from start to finish. Finally, iconic rap trio Migos came through with impeccably-timed flows, blown-out beats, smoke machines and confetti cannons.
