Stage: Scène de la Montagne
The Icelandic band isn’t acclaimed in the States, but surely is well know above the border, earning a primetime evening slot after Florence + the Machine. Lead singer Jónsi Birgisson is an incredible vocalist whose falsetto was often on display. Their brand of ambient rock was artfully partnered with a cinematic stage setup. Images of sparkling lights, but also shadowy woodsy backdrops played on screens with their string and organ-laden music soundtracking it.
