Us The Duo opened the day of music. The married folk duo of Michael and Carissa Rae Alvarado were able to make their set in front of thousands feel just as intimate as the viral wedding video of “No Matter Where You Are.” Michael explained on stage that most of their songs were “love songs” because the two were simply “in love.”
Next up was Ireland’s Kodaline who turned up the energy with a spirited set. They went through songs from their debut LP In a Perfect World and the crowd loved it.
Ingrid Michaelson then took the stage to perform her ukulele washed style of pop. The crowd reveled as she went through her early hits like “The Way I Am” and “Be OK” and her current single “Girls Chase Boys.”
