Despite bad weather in the area, fans showed up to watch their bands perform. The festival continues into the evening and on Sunday.
Matt & Kim performed on the main stage.
The pop duo threw balloons at the audience, instructing them to blow them up and release them.
Fans remained even in flooded areas of the beer garden.
The lineup includes National, Of Monsters and Men, Ra Ra Riot, the Dirty Projectors, Cults (pictured), and local act Caspian.
