The eclectic duo’s live performance from the Ocean View stage cemented their first headlining slot at a major music festival. Although they had played the San Diego mainstay in years past, Sophie Hawley-Weld and Tucker Halpern were deservedly billed as festival frontrunners this year, positioned alongside the likes of Glass Animals, Four Tet, and Gorgon City.
