Yungblud thrills with electric Main Stage set and special guest

Posted:Friday | 4:32 PM

The Yorkshire native brought his unrelenting energy to the Main Stage.

Yungblud certainly knows how to party. The genre-bending artist brought the house down with a homecoming set that was full of the surprises and raw emotion that have become his signature sound.

Fusing hip hop, alternative rock, and pop-punk in equal measure, Yungblud gave the crowd what they wanted with a 30-minute set complete with relentless energy and genuine affection for his audience.

Banging tunes like ‘I Love You, Will You Marry Me’, ‘Loner’, and ‘21st Century Liability’ whipped the crowd into a frenzy that stayed throughout the performance. The biggest surprise of his set, however, came when he invited Machine Gun Kelly onto the stage to the delight of everyone watching! The duo rocked the Main Stage with Kelly’s ‘I Think I’m Okay’, and it’ll be hard to forget just how amazing the pair’s on-stage chemistry was.

Speaking of chemistry, Yungblud’s relationship with his die-hard fans was hard to ignore, too. At one point, with the crowd belting his song back at him, Yungblud was so touched that he couldn’t help but stand still and soak in the moment. It was a memory that captured the mood on a hot, sunny Friday, and everyone in attendance – Yungblud included – won’t forget this gig in a hurry.
