Thousands filled in toward Firefly Music Festival's Backyard Stage as Fetty Wap's 7:15 set time approached on Saturday night, but at 7:16, there was no Fetty in sight. However, what the sunburned crowd did get was Mr. Maxwell's hypeman, who acted as DJ for half an hour, playing oodles of Vine-famous hip-hop tracks (think T-Wayne's "Nasty Freestyle" and Yo Gotti's "Down in the DM") for those not-so-hip-hop-literate fans (a.k.a. the ones there for "Trap Queen").
Half of the festival-goers were stoked to get a 30-minute dance party, while the other half were none too pleased. Either way, if you were waiting for Fetty Wap, fans had to keep themselves occupied for a while. Here's what happened during Fetty Wap's set while Fetty Wap wasn't there:
>> Fetty's DJ politely demanded everyone to follow him on Snapchat and Instagram
>> We all had an Adele singalong
>> A guy in the chipmunk costume crowd-surfed on a blow-up flamingo
>> People watched the chipmunk guy crowd-surf on a blow-up flamingo on the big screen, rooting for him to stay afloat
>> Three more people tried to crowd-surf and failed
>> The sun went down over the trees
>> The DJ played two Justin Bieber songs and three Drake songs, but no Fetty Wap songs
>> He asked someone in the crowd to raise their rainbow flag and said "Shout out to Orlando"
>> A glittery girl ate soba noodles
>> I thought about going pee
>> I wondered what my cat was doing at that very moment
>> Multiple people recorded on their GoPros, making videos they'll never watch again
>> More people recorded on their last-generation cellphones, making videos they'll never watch again
>> People checked their phones to see how much time had passed since the last time they checked
As for Fetty's actual set, he only needed 30 minutes anyway (despite how huge he's gotten, he's still gathering together a decent discography). He smiled his way all the hits, like "679," "My Way" and, of course, "Trap Queen," which he graced with a lengthy a cappella toward the end, only to roll the beat back out for everyone to go cRaZy!!!
