Florence + The Machine performs at the inaugural Grandoozy festival in Denver.

The highly-anticipated inaugural Grandoozy music festival made its debut in Denver's Overland Park this past weekend, pulling in music fans of all ages despite the 90-degree heat. Acts performed on three outdoor main stages, each of which drew massive crowds in the evening, as well as the dance-themed Break Room. 

Kendrick Lamar's fiery hip-hop set thrilled the Friday night crowd. Cherry Glazerr laid down some rollicking guitar riffs while also taking over our Instagram page on Saturday. And a pitch-perfect Sunday night closing set from Stevie Wonder had the crowd singing along to songs like "My Cherie Amour" and "Living for the City." Take a look:
