Calvin Harris took to the DJ booth after midnight and kept the crowd going wild with a set over two hours long with all of his top hits, such as “I Need Your Love,” “We Found Love,” and “Sweet Nothing.” A good DJ anticipates the crowd’s mood, and Calvin Harris did just that all night long.

Fans were waiting his latest and greatest tracks and were thrilled when his newest hit, “Under Control,” came blasting through the tents.
