Concert Crowdsourced: Diplo at SU

The popular DJ partied both during and after his set on Saturday to the delight of all at Goldstein Auditorium.

Diplo's show on Saturday was the most anticipated event on campus up to this point in the year. So when the DJ actively engaged our fondness for social media throughout his night in addition to providing what seemed to be a highly regarded set, it all lived up to the hype.


University Union certainly got the crowd they hoped. Opening act Rye Rye (above) didn't generate the type of buzz that the headliner did, but after Diplo was done, those in attendance all had a positive take on the evening.

You can see for yourself.


Other folks did offer more traditional critical acclaim for the show.

Following his performance, Diplo was flooded with requests to show up at parties - everywhere from frats and off-campus apartments to residence halls.  Sure enough, Diplo took the opportunity to see what the night life had in store (perhaps the biggest name to do so since Bloc Party in 2008).  He found toga parties, bags of liquid and... game shows?  

All signs of a typical night in Syracuse and a successful UU show.
