Soundgarden was scheduled to headline the musical event before the rocker's unexpected death on Wednesday night. Instead, fans were treated to a special tribute in honor of Cornell during the band's designated slot.
The tribute began with two side monitors showing a photo of Cornell singing onstage, with two animated candles on each side as "Hallelujah" played. The screens then showed a video of the singer performing a cover of John Lennon's "Imagine," followed by a photo montage of Cornell, as his voice blared through the stadium.
A video tribute was also shown and later shared on the festival's Facebook page.
Additional artists that dedicated songs to Cornell during their sets were Vic Fuentes from Pierce the Veil, Gavin Rossdale from Bush, who performed Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun," and Live, who covered Audioslave's "I Am the Highway."
