After a successful first day of Live at Squamish 2011, Sunday followed with an even larger line-up of artists. With shows starting earlier in the day, it was packed with even more music and dancing. Although the sun hid periodically behind incoming cloud cover, the bikinis were out, the beer gardens were brimming and hands were clapping for the amazing talents that graced each stage.
Metric finished their set to a booming rendition of Stadium Love and Weezer dropped a few covers on the crowd including Pumped Up Kicks and Radiohead’s Paranoid Android. Weezer frontman Rivers Cuomo also took a stroll through the crowd and without skipping a beat, while being hugged and grabbed by adoring fans, didn’t skip a beat during his Island in the Sun ‘hip hip’ cues.
Live at Squamish producers committed to doing the festival for five years so if you missed it in 2010 or 2011, you can make a point of adding it to your summer calendar until at least 2014. Read all of my Live at Squamish coverage here.
