Severe storms on Friday caused Thrival Music X Arts to temporarily shut down for hours. As a result, Matt and Kim, along with a few other opening acts were cut, and headliner Dillion Francis performed an abbreviated set. Those who came for Matt and Kim were a bit disgruntled.





But those who stayed through the storm were treated to an amazing set from Dillion Francis, who performed a tribute to Mac Miller.








Brillobox held its monthly Slappers n Bangers party on Saturday. It was a night filled with hip-hop, trap, and good times.

Up against Wolf Alice was Everything Is Recorded, Florence & The Machine, Jorja Smith, King Krule, Lily Allen, Nadine Shah, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Novelist, and Sons Of Kemet.






Even though the congratulations rolled in, many were upset about the choice.
