Wildlands Festival 2023 Day Two at Big Sky Events Arena in Big Sky, MT

By George Ortiz, Loud Hailer –

Big Sky Wildlands Festival day two was a thunderous triumph with Foo Fighters, The Breeders, and Taipei Houston despite nature’s wrath.

The Wildlands Festival roared into its second day with an electrifying lineup that left the audience exhilarated despite a weather-related hiccup. Headlined by the legendary Foo Fighters, supported by indie darlings The Breeders and up-and-coming sensation Taipei Houston, the event proved to be a rollercoaster of emotions, music, and Mother Nature’s unpredictability.

The excitement was palpable as fans streamed into the festival grounds, eager to experience the eclectic mix of musical styles promised by the day’s lineup. The mood was upbeat with festival-goers from all walks of life coming together to celebrate the power of music amidst the stunning backdrop of Big Sky’s natural beauty.

The evening began with a burst of energy from Taipei Houston, a relatively new player in the music scene. The garage rock duo consists of the two sons of Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich: drummer Myles (24) and vocalist/bassist Layne (21). Despite their newcomer status, the duo’s infectious blend of hard rock had the crowd cheering and grooving from the get-go. Taipei Houston set the bar for an evening that will not be soon forgotten.
