Tree is constantly in character, playing a persona that's rude and overly full of himself, which was very evident when he repeatedly – in a way that can only be taken jokingly – referred to the festival as South by Southwest, a completely different Austin festival.
Despite misidentifying the event he was playing, Tree drew a massive crowd that completely filled the Tito's Vodka Stage area, and the audience seemed to love his obvious mistake.
Tree is known for his over-the-top, retro-inspired looks, and his outfits during his performance exemplified that. He wore several different hats, including a vibrant pink cowboy hat, a neon yellow ski mask, which didn't stay on long in the heat, and a massive, oversized yellow foam cowboy hat. Oh, and he did the whole performance in a gold-studded wheelchair.
Tree managed to injure himself during an earlier leg of his tour, but unlike a certain headliner from last year's festival, he pushed on and still gave an electrifying performance.
His band wore interesting outfits as well, with one of them wearing a doctor's costume and another wearing an outfit with the iconic vapor-wave pattern printed all over it.
Despite his mean exterior, Tree ended his set by telling the audience the one thing they should take away from it is that no matter how weird or strange they think they are or look, they are all beautiful.
