Music: Wiz Khalifa, Drake, Theophilus London, Asher Roth
Notes: On Saturday night, Drake had a very public failure to appear, blaming it on his flight at the airport — as people were waiting for him to come in Park City, US Weekly was reporting his plane wasn’t even on the ground. Everyone with black wristbands waiting in Bing the basement (which we understand Bing bought out for the entire year just for this one weekend) gave up and walked down to Tao to see Kaskade. Eventually Drake made it to Bing and people had to rush back to get in. We noticed this lovely one waiting for Drake in an empty room of those who had given up waiting for the man solo rocking out with the DJ – its funnay. Watch it.
