On Sunday, Panorama finally got that big, joyous, festival-feeling day it deserved. The crowd was by far the largest of the weekend, the sun was shining throughout the afternoon, there were enough non-muddy spots on the big lawn for people to spread out and chill, and on all three stages the musical acts delivered.
The Killers headlined on the main stage at 9:30 p.m., where some fans had been camped in the front rows since noon. David Byrne put on an eccentrically choreographed, Talking Heads-heavy show, which ended with a cover of Janelle Monae’s Black Lives Matter anthem, "Hell You Talmbout."
Odesza brought out a drum line to start things off, and things only got more raucous after that. The xx sent us swooning with their lovelorn anthems. Detroit legend Moodymann had the dance floor jumping with his thumping house mix, and Jlin and DJ Haram also helped cap off an all-around excellent weekend of DJs at The Point.
One of the great things about festivals is when you go check out an act you’ve never heard of and it turns out they have legions of loving fans shrieking in delight and singing along to every song. This happened to me three times on Sunday, at Chicano Batman, Rex Orange County, and Robert DeLong, all of whom had clearly been doing just fine without my knowledge or support.
