It goes without saying: Solange headlining a major venue doesn’t need too much hyping up. Adding Flying Lotus and Earl Sweatshirt does send it over the top, however, turning the two-night event into a triple-header lineup worthy of gracing even the biggest music festivals ( (Side note: Solange and Earl are on the bill for this year’s Camp Flog Naw in Los Angeles).
Flying Lotus fans should be stoked to catch the beatsmith wonder bring his psychedelic “Magic” 3D show to the Bay after debuting it at FYF Fest back in earlier this summer, upping the ante on the already hyper-sensory double-screen 2D experience in previous years. In a Pigeons & Planes interview, the Brainfeeder founder explains the idea is to force fans to put down the phones and “view the experience with their eyes.”
“There’s no way you can enjoy the experience with your phone or holding your phone up,” he explains in the post. “You have to watch and experience it with your eyes and be present in the moment.”
