Review / photos: Coastline Festival brings Passion Pit, Matt and Kim and a perfect day of indie rock to Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre
One of fall's most anticipated concert festivals hit Tampa's MidFlorida Credit Union Amphitheatre over the weekend: The inaugural Coastline Festival, featuring Passion Pit (above), Two Door Cinema Club, Matt and Kim, The Neighbourhood and more.
Hannah Elliott of our sister publication tb-two* was there, and she called it "a whole different world," from the free ice cream to the "grassy bliss" at sunset. Of Passion Pit, she writes:
The unique thing about Passion Pit is their ability to make the crowd know the song they are singing when they really don't. With simple chorus and accessible synth melodies, anyone can dance and sing along. Michael Angelakos wooed the crowd with his high-pitched vocals and looked especially nice in his skinny jeans, just sayin'. Though the crowd got lost in the high-pitched chaos every once in awhile, they found their way back. Toward the end, the fast-paced, falsetto and sugary synths were getting to my head and flooding my senses because I swore it smelled like an ice cream shop.
