“We are Phoenix, from Paris, France” lead singer Thomas Mars shouted. “Are you with us or what?”

This gave way to the dance-pop musings of “Trying To Be Cool”. The main-stage fans, many of whom had waited all day through the draining and relentless heat for Beyonce, appeared to be simultaneously exhausted and excited.

Mars then laid down on the stage, foreshadowing the introduction of their riveting instrumental track “Love Like A Sunset Part 1″, a song crushingly augmented by a guitar riff mixed much louder than it was on record.

Then it was time for “1901”. Mars stood on the front-row barriers propped up by security as cameras and phones popped out of every orifice of the embracing audience. He then took to the sea of fans, singing as he swam across their heads until he popped up at the soundboard rafters and made his way back. [Crave Online]

The Jay Z-curated Made In America festival went down on Philly’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway this past weekend (Saturday, 8/31 and Sunday, 9/1). The first day included sets from Beyonce, Phoenix, Empire of the Sun, Public Enemy, 2 Chainz, A$AP Rocky (who showed up late and played an abbreviated set), Haim, Rudimental, and more. Pictures of those artists (and a few) others are in this post. The festival also had a few last-minute punky additions on the Skate Park Stage including Cloud Nothings, Balance & Composure, and Restorations, who we unfortunately missed.

Jay Z also used the festival to announce his upcoming Magna Carta World Tour. Dates haven’t been announced yet but will be soon, so stay tuned.

Some of the artists who played day 1 will be in NYC this week and next, including Haim, who play Webster Hall tonight (9/3) with IO Echo (sold out), and 2 Chainz who plays Williamsburg Park on 9/10.

Beyonce and Phoenix will also be back later this year to play Jay Z’s home base, Barclays Center.

Stay tuned for day 2 pictures. A second set of day 1 pics is HERE and more of day 1 below…
