And that's a wrap! The 2018 Billboard Hot 100 Festival came to a close Sunday night (Aug. 19) to tie the knot on its fourth edition and featured a handful of packed-out, shoulder-to-shoulder settings for dance fans.     

While pop and hip-hop took over most of the early afternoon, the baton was then handed off to New York duo The Knocks who dished out infectious, feet-tapping grooves that threw it back to the '80s.   

Later in the evening, Two Friends made their Hot 100 Festival debut and drew in the biggest crowd of the Beach Stage of any dance act all weekend long. From crowd favorites like Kanye West's "Gold Digger" to The Killers' "Mr. Brightside," fans were in for a sing-a-long spectacle. The group even brought out a live saxophonist and trumpeter who delivered some impressive riffs.    

To keep the energy going, Billboard Hot 100 Festival headliner DJ Snake took to the Hot 100 mainstage and delivered a fiery performance, decked out with sparklers and CO2 shots. "Magenta Riddim" and "Propaganda" were just a few of the many ground-shakers that rocked the amphitheater. Bass boomer NGHTMRE closed out the Beach Stage with an equally heavy set filled with gritty dubstep, trap and more.
