I saw them just over a week ago and I feel like this act has only gotten worse since this review. I saw them in February and it was mostly what was described above; then at the end of July it was more of what I hated and less of what I loved.
However Nathan, I will agree with you partially. The crowd played a part in my lack of interest in the concert. Most of the people were not fans of Major Lazer and I think Diplo knew that, so instead of playing a lot of his own songs, he would play 30 seconds snippets of his songs and then play 3-4 songs that were not his original work.
I don't pay for concert tickets to Major Lazer to barely here any of there songs. I typically expect at minimum 2/3 original and 1/3 remixed work. However it was 1 part Major Lazer and 3 parts Drake, Snoop Dog, etc; oh with "Major Lazer" phrase continually repeated in the background over all these remixes.
