The band headlined a Thursday artist lineup featuring well-received sets from Lotus, Above & Beyond, Kamasi Washington, Bob Moses, [Br]eaking [Bi]scuits and many more, marking the first of 8 days of music in Rothbury over the next two weekends.String Cheese got started slightly later than expected due to rain, which would continue i periodic spurts throughout the two-set performance. At one point, the band even acknowledged to the crowd that there was lightning coming in and they may have to send everyone back to their shelters, but that they would keep playing right up until that point.Despite the weather, the band still managed to put together a fun, widely-accessible set for the musically diverse festival crowd, including a surprising tease of Daft Punk‘s “Get Lucky” during the show-opening “Rollover,” a jam on Maroon 5‘s “Moves Like Jagger” during the first set-closing “Colliding,” and a crowd-pleasing “Miss Brown’s Teahouse” into a cover of The Rolling Stones‘ “Sympathy For The Devil” to close out the encore.last_img
