Fred Again’s set at Glastonbury led to some serious FOMO for dance music frothers around the world. If you weren’t one of the 200,000 people at the festival, like me, you’ll be stoked that there are many epic moments from Fred’s performance making the rounds online.
Like when the EDM wunderkind previewed a brand new song to the massive, flag-bearing and surprisingly phoneless crowd. Setlist.fm has tentatively named the song ‘Obong’, as it features vocals from Nigerian artist Obongyajar.
Fred first played the track at his Primavera sound set earlier this month and then played it again a day later at Parklife Festival.
Of course, Freddy boy sent the crowd into a frenzy by playing some of his tunes that are pretty much modern classics now.
One older geezer in the crowd is going viral for going ape-shit crazy during ‘Jungle’, Fred’s 2022 smash hit he made with Skrillex.
“Anyone else notice this little legend?” a Twitter user sharing a vid of the moshpit moment said. “Absolutely loving life.”
The crowd's adoration for Fred manifested at the closing of his set, when the audience sang the lyrics to his tune ‘Billie (Loving Arms)’ back at him, pretty much serenading him as he walked off the stage.
The royal deck maestro also attempted to break a world record during his performance. Before playing ‘Marea (we’ve lost dancing)’ he encouraged the crowd to hop on each get their piggyback on and smash the world record “for the amount of people in a festival crowd on shoulders.”
It’s unclear if he broke the record, or if there even is a record for that but shiet it looked like a hell of a time.
See what I meant about the FOMO? Freakin’ scenes man.
