Gold Panda: This UK producer is at his best when he's in a mellow mood, crafting soothing, yet seductive, slices of electronica that work equally well at a festival or a coffee shop. It's great chill-out music -- and the exact opposite of what you'll get with Duck Sauce ("Barbra Streisand") and many of the other EDM acts on the bill. Details: 7:40 p.m. Aug. 10, Panhandle Stage.
