From the PageSix.com: “Jimmy Buffett makes surprise appearance with Kygo at Hamptons music festival“
“Wastin’ away again” in the Hamptons.
Jimmy Buffett made a surprise appearance during Kygo’s headlining DJ set at Palm Tree Music Festival on Saturday.
“I have a special guest with me for this next one,” the “It Ain’t Me” hitmaker, 30, told the crowd, as Buffett, 75, stepped onto the stage to perform “Margaritaville.”
“How are we doing tonight Long Island?” he asked the crowd at Francis S. Gabreski Airport in Westhampton Beach.
Controversial Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy watched the show from side stage, while Sports Illustrated model Camille Kostek danced nearby with “We Wore What” designer Danielle Bernstein, Melissa Wood Tepperberg and Olivia Culpo’s sister, Sophia Culpo.
Kygo also brought singer Zak Abel on stage, before treating the crowd of approximately 5,000 to a rare, stripped-back rendition of “Firestone” on the piano.
Earlier in the night, Portnoy, who joked that his appearance resembled a character from “The Hangover,” revealed he met Buffett backstage.
“I just had a little small talk with him. My favorite guy on the earth,” he said in an Instagram video.
“A lot of people hate me, a lot of people love me. Here’s the thing though: we all love Jimmy, and we all should be getting along. Life’s too short to hate.”
Although Buffett wasn’t on the bill, he’s no stranger to making guest appearances in the Hamptons.
On Labor Day in 2019, he joined Willie Nelson’s son, Lukas, onstage at a party, and even entertained guests at the swanky Surf Lodge in 2018 when he jumped onstage during a Wyclef Jean gig.
