Electronica duo Big Gigantic ended Day Two by being exactly what the name suggests: larger than life.
The pair from Boulder, Colorado has been recording and performing livetronica, a subgenre in which live instruments and electronic production are used together, since 2009.
The Bonnaroo veterans took the Others Stage by storm at 2:15 a.m. Saturday and delivered a 65 minute set of energetic producing mixed with live instruments, gaudy, kaleidoscopic light displays, and pyrotechnics.
Over-the-top production value aside, the set showcased producer and saxophonist Dominic Lalli’s live performance skills and technical abilities while drummer Jeremy Salken demonstrated an unreal ability to adapt live music to accompany the electronic.
Being the last show of the evening and one of the major acts of the weekend for EDM fans, the duo maintained a large, rowdy crowd for the duration of the late-night show.
Attendees danced vigorously to remixes and original beats that rattled the campgrounds around them.
From the first bass drop to the fireworks at the end of the show, Big Gigantic most assuredly put on one of the most literally and figuratively electric shows of the weekend.
