PJ20 Festival's Top Side Stage & Opening Lineup Performances

PJ20 weekend was highlighted by Pearl Jam’s shows at the end of each night, but the side stage and opening acts provided the members of the band with plenty of guest appearance opportunities that didn’t go to waste.

These “guest” spots throughout the weekend helped establish a communal and celebratory atmosphere that gave fans a first-hand glimpse at the band’s diverse musical influence.

Although a rain-soaked Saturday spoiled their first chance to entertain the contingent of Strangest Tribe members in attendance, they took advantage of a gorgeous Sunday afternoon to help make the weekend extra special for those who attended.

Here are the best side stage and opening lineup moments from PJ20 weekend:

My Pearl Jam fandom began when I was in elementary school in the early 90's and I "permanently borrowed" my sister's copy of Ten because I needed something to listen to while I mowed the lawn. Fast-forward a few decades and I've been to about 30 shows and have traveled to places I would have never discovered had it not been for the band.
