The sound for Japandroids was terrible at the back of the tent. Bass drum was too loud, the vocals were barely audible, and the guitar was way too distorted. It could also be because of where I was standing.
Most disappointing for me was Maps & Atlases. The stuff they were playing sounded nothing like the old stuff that I knew. Kendrick was a bit disappointing but I kind of expected it to sound how it did (watched him on the Roo stream last year). A friend in our group was all about Twentyone Pilots but I just couldn't get into it. Such an awesome year though!
I see a lot of people saying they didn't like araab's set, I thought it was awesome! You also have to remember he got shot a few weeks before Roo and cancelled almost all of his dates except Roo. I'm pretty sure he was still recovering so it makes sense that he wasn't going crazy on stage.
you also have to remember that he's a terrible producer.
