India Baker, who traveled to Philadelphia from Los Angeles with her friend Brittany Smith was so stoked by superstar DJ Khaled's turn on stage that she jumped over a barricade at Made in America, got up on a wooden box and danced her heart out until a security guard commanded her to get down and fireman-carried her back to earth.
"I jumped up there so I could see over all these crazy people," Baker said, still wiggling in time to the beat. "I'm 5-foot-10. I got long legs."
Looking around at the joyful throng, she said, "This is a euphoria of people! It's insane! When [the guard's] not looking, I'm going to get up there and dance again."
Meanwhile, Meredith Edlow of South Philadelphia was registering voters in the Hillary for America booth when out of the blue, Bill Clinton popped in to say hi.
"I suddenly saw my fellow volunteers get that 'Oh! Oh! Look!' look," Edlow said, "and I turned around and said, 'No way! Oh wow!'
We were super stoked!" she said, still a little breathless as if Rihanna had stopped in to say hi. "He didn't give us a pep talk, just posed for selfies. He was so inspiring!"
Budweiser's Made in America Festival, day two, delivered a diverse mix of hip hop to hippie, emo rock to mock rock, social thinkers to underage drinkers all jamming on and jammed onto the Ben Franklin Parkway on Sunday.
Thankfully, Hermine did not attend. Sunshine ruled.
Long before the evening headliner Coldplay was due to take the Rocky Stage, the festival's five stages served up 30 acts doing seven hours of nonstop beats and riffs for tens of thousands of mostly-young Labor Day Weekend celebrants, hungry for the last big summer party before returning to real life.
And the Parkway was the most electrifying place to be in Philadelphia.
Austin Du, a Penn student, who wore giraffe headgear, danced to Gary Clark Jr.'s blues and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros' hippie emo rock with equal fervor, accompanied by his friend, Jack Tanner, who wore a kimono.
"I wear the giraffe to raves in Philly," Du said.
"I wear the kimono everywhere, said Tanner. "It's comfortable."
Shay Harper and Danielle Grimes, who traveled here from Washington, D.C., wore daisy chains in their hair and smiles on their faces. "We bought the tickets before we knew who was performing," Harper said. "We've seen 10 acts we love! This is heaven on earth!"
Malik Stewart, 23, also from Washington, spent the afternoon on the Parkway's main drag, moonwalking around his single drum while delivering a nonstop barrage of beats that drew big smartphone snapping crowds of admirers.
Stewart said that ever since his drumming to a Desiigner song video went viral, his dream has been to drum for the artist, which he hoped to do late Sunday at MIA. Note to the unhip: Sidney Royel Selby III, a hip-hopper from Brooklyn, is known professionally as Desiigner.
