Day N Vegas returned to the desert after a hiatus due to Covid and minus a headliner switch was an amazing weekend of performers and stages. Day N Vegas is one of my favorite festivals to photograph because of the diversity of their line up, with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Thundercat, Jazmine Sullivan, Tyler The Creator, Mereba, Griselda and late additions like Post Malone.
Kendrick Lamar easily stole the show at the festival, giving one of his dopest performances ever in my opinion and the opinion of many others… bringing out Baby Keem and amplifying the black experience, his lighting and attention to details showed throughout the set, while also having the biggest audience of the weekend.
Overall the weekend didn’t disappoint and we are excited to see what next year brings.
We can’t forget how Tyler was the perfect closer for the festival with his high energy performance, impromptu commentary throughout the show and giving all of himself as a performer as usual!
