Oya Festival’s second full day featured an array of highly-anticipated sets, including Björk, The Afghan Whigs, A$AP Rocky and Frank Ocean. The first three of those acts all performed impressively, but it was the slow-burning, neo-soul singer who captured the largest headlines after only playing four songs for an adoring crowd—one that ended up booing him given his early departure from the Enga stage.
Beyond the hyped acts, St. Vincent blazed through a extremely cohesive set mostly featuring songs from her latest album, Strange Mercy, plus a couple fan favorites from her first two records. Billy Bragg waved his traditional folk flag high as a last-minute addition to the lineup, while Baroness showed why they’re one of the best metal groups around today.
