Northern Invasion Day Two brought all the sun and all energy. The day started early with Whitney Peyton crowd surfing on top of a giant “Swanmingo” raft that she received from a fan while back. Peyton is a firecracker hailing from the outskirts of Philly, that has pulled inspiration from some of our modern day legends like Missy Elliott, Eminem, and No Doubt.
One of the many highlights from the weekend would be The Fever 333's set. Which no one could stop talking about all day. From the beginning of their set, which had already drawn a large crowd for a band not on the main stage, the crowd size doubled by the end of their set; Jason Aalon Butler promised the crowd that their set was meant to be a safe place for anyone who is different, which is everyone. Butler indirectly guarantees every single person a wild show, and boy did he deliver. At one point he got down into the photo pit (while still singing) climbed under the stage, found a small flatbed with wheels, climbed back onto the stage, and skateboarded on the stage while not missing a single beat. Anyone who missed their set still holds so much regret.
Stone Temple Pilots played to a massive crowd. Back in February of 2016 the band held online auditions for a new singer as STP has had a long history as a band with various singers, including long time member Scott Weiland who has passed, along with Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington who has also passed. STP had ended up picking current singer - Jeff Gutt, who was the season three runner-up on X-Factor. Jeff shows nothing but love and dedication to the band while performing. His energy was everything STP needed to keep going after such hard times with the loss of Chester and Scott.
Maynard Keenan of A Perfect Circle also brought out his other band Tool for Day Two. They played a full 12 song set with 3 of their songs being the extended version. They also played their song "Sober" for the first time since 2014.
The night ended with major rock band Alice In Chains who also pulled the biggest crowd of the night. They opened with "Check My Brain," and ended the night with some big songs like "Would?" and "Rooster," which then brought Northern Invasion number four to an end!
