Best Proof That Pop Can Part Clouds and Unite Crowds: Bazzi
Sunday's festivities got off to a somewhat slow start thanks to Saturday's all-night partying and a morning downpour that left muddy patches all over The Farm. Michigan-born pop upstart Bazzi got things moving along with his This Tent-opening set, which he capped with a run through "Mine," a blissed-out confession of love – "You so fuckin' precious when you smile" – that doubles as one of current pop radio's few opportunities for unabashed, synth-borne joy. The crowd ate it up, singing along with every delighted lyric as the plush keyboards rose up around their collective voices. By the time Bazzi enticed them into singing the chorus along with him one last time, you could have sworn the sun was shining a bit more brightly. M.J.
