Jon Hopkins, Kaytranada, St. Lucia play TIME Festival

After braving the torrential downpour at Fort York Garrison Common yesterday, I left one of the most disorganized mini festivals I'd ever been to.

(After a three-year hiatus, TIME Festival had returned to the city and it would appear they were a little rusty: security was inconsistent, especially regarding umbrellas; food trucks were a scarce resource; and rain shelters weren't brought in until late in the afternoon, forcing the crowd towards the treeline at the back of the grounds.)

No rap on the performers of course, who made the best of the unfortunate weather. Jon Hopkins put on an electric one-hour set, Kaytranada pleasantly surprised his fans with an unpredictable mix of Kaytra Todo cuts and impromptu edits, and St. Lucia put the crowd into a cheerier mood.

Most attendees bolted shortly after St. Lucia, when the weather took a turn for the worst, but I hear Action Bronson turned up the survivors pretty well for headliners Flume and Grimes.
