X Ambassadors were up next. After the soft tunes from BORNS, X Ambassadors amped up the crowd, giving them a hyped performance. Their sound won over the crowd with their angsty vibe and high-energy. The lead singer the entire stage dancing, singing and jamming with his fellow band members and the audience. He got the audience

pumped up by singing their hit tunes “Jungle” and “Renegades.” He broke out a saxophone and hopped down to the audience, surprising the concert goers, while also getting them more excited for the rest of the show.

Glass Animals took the stage after them. They toned the concert down with their funky, psychedelic indie tunes. The cool blue and purple colors of the lights helped reflect the tone of their music and coplimented the beat of the music, giving the band an interesting set. They sang their songs “Gooey,” “Hazey” and “Toes” from their album “Zaba.” They however mixed things up by treating the audience to a cover of Kanye West’s “Love Lockdown.” Their whole set had the audience grooving.

They continued to sing their popular hits from all different albums like “Hash Pipe,” “Island in the Sun,” “Thank God for Girls” and “Say It Ain’t So.” They had their lights going crazy in the venue, moving all over stage. Their set would not be complete without their classic “W” in the background. During their whole entire set the audience was jumping, dancing and singing along. After closing their set with “Undone-The Sweater Song,” they return to the stage in Santa hats to finish opening night with their encore.
