The number one goddess of music, graced the Amphitheater stage on Saturday night. The sun had been shining all day and the mud was still pretty epic but nothing was going to deter from the fact the red headed beauty was headlining.
Much in anticipation the masses of people stood around patiently, lights dimmed and a massive roar from the audience brought out Florence, dressed head to toe in white and jumping around the stage with no shoes on, gracing the audience with her angelic presence.
Florence pulled out songs most of the audience had forgotten about like Dog Days Are Over, Rabbit Heart, Drumming Song off her 2009 Lungs banger of an album. Shake It Out and What The Water Gave Me off the 2011 Ceremonials album and of course loads of killer tracks off her new 2015 album How Big How Blue How Beautiful such as Ship To Wreck and What Kind Of Man. Personally, I surprised myself with the amount of music I knew and lyrics I remembered of Florence's older stuff, listening to Lungs in High School and being with your best mates from those days was nostalgic as hell. Florence was so incredibly gracious as she bounced from one end of the stage to the other with her beautiful white flowy top making her look ever so majestic.
I had never seen the Amphitheater so packed before, I feel sorry for the other acts scheduled on at the same time as Florence because the turn out wouldn't have been too great. The amount of times Florence went down into the crowd, with the security guards holding onto to her ever so tightly literally blessing each and every human in the front few rows, and one lucky lass in particular even got a kiss from the red headed beauty, it was as if Florence was a fairy god mother sent from above to make us all feel super warm and fuzzy on the inside. At one stage there was a full grown man pulled up on stage in his not so white wedding gown with Florence dancing ever so beautifully around him, probably one of the most stoked humans to be at Splendour, I soon saw him after and the grin on his face wasn't going anywhere.
I left the Amphitheater amazed and dazed at the presence Florence brought to the stage and the amount of love and good energy floating around the grounds was insane, what a beautifully talented lady I feel like she touched every soul present that night, a show to never forget !
