The Canadian rapper, who apparently never met an expletive he didn’t like, energized the crowd with a 45-minute set. And if there was a roof over `70s punk band X, it would have blown off.

While the threat of rain loomed for most of the day, the only real precipitation was the Budweiser-soaked earth in front of the stages. The performances all ran on time and the sound was pretty amazing for an outdoor venue. Even the crowd was well behaved with enough space for them to roam.

In one funny moment, a large gentleman cut the bathroom line in the VIP area and opened the door to a portable unit for a brief inspection. Holding back the crowd, he said: “Right here, Miss B.”

Beyoncé took a look, nodded her head, and the entourage continued on. Later, she walked with husband Jay-Z and Rita Ora to catch Drake’s performance. It was that kind of night.
