Despite the extreme heat, Day Two was, yet again, full of energy and a super vibrant crowd.
The day started off with an amazing set by local Houston band Blossom Aloe, who exclaimed how happy they were to perform on the main stage. There were also performance by Nominee and Sam Austins, as well as Austin legend Sir Woman. Madeline the Person was supposed to take the stage, but had to drop out due to personal reasons – resulting in Oats & Honey playing their second set.
Following the same schedule as day one, we began to see more well-known artists around 5 p.m. Hippie Sabotage played the main Coca-Cola stage, and although they were experiencing technical difficulties due to the heat, they still played a kick-ass show. Following their set was Swedish songstress Tove Lo on the Coke Studio stage, who played all of the hits like “Habits” and “Talking Body.” Pusha T took the stage right after, where he claimed the Texas crowd to be one of his craziest crowds this year.
Promptly at 7:30 p.m, Chvrches took the stage and everyone was in awe when they saw lead singer Lauren Mayberry’s gemstone makeup. They played oldies like “Bury It” and “The Mother We Share” as well as newer songs like “How Not To Drown” and “Asking for a Friend.” Lord Huron then played their set on the opposite stage, followed by Cage the Elephant, who haven’t played a show in Texas since January 2020. Marshmello ended off the hot summer day with a fun dance party in the middle of Gonzales, thus wrapping up the festival. While it was extremely hot (it’s Texas summer, what do we expect?), Float Fest is one of the Texas festivals to remember and we can’t wait to see what they have in store for next year.
