Jimmy Buffett appears at the Hamptons Music Festival with Kygo


“Wastin’ away again” in the Hamptons.

Jimmy Buffett made a surprise appearance during Kygo’s headlining DJ set at the Palm Tree Music Festival on Saturday.

“I have a special guest with me for the next one,” the “It Ain’t Me” hitmaker, 30, told the crowd as Buffett, 75, took the stage to perform “Margaritaville.”

“How are we tonight Long Island?” he asked the crowd at Francis S. Gabreski Airport in Westhampton Beach.

Controversial Barstool Sports founder Dave Portnoy watched the show from the side stage, while Sports Illustrated model Camille Kostek danced nearby with ‘We Wore What’ creator Danielle Bernstein, Melissa Wood Tepperberg and sister by Olivia Culpo, Sophia Culpo.

Kygo also brought vocalist Zak Abel onto the stage, before treating the crowd of around 5,000 with a rare, stripped-down rendition of “Firestone” on the piano.

Earlier in the night, Portnoy, who joked that his appearance resembled a character from “The Hangover,” revealed he met Buffett backstage.

The Palm Tree Music Festival brought together artists like Dave Portnoy and Camille Kostek.

“I just had a little chat with him. My favorite guy on earth,” he said in an Instagram video.

“A lot of people hate me, a lot of people love me. Here’s the thing: we all love Jimmy, and we should all get along. Life’s too short to hate.

The Westhampton event marked the second annual Palm Tree Music Festival.

The lineup for the second annual Palm Tree Music Festival also included “Latch” Disclosure hitmakers Claptone, Thomas Jack and Haywood.

Although Buffett hasn’t been on the show, he’s no stranger to making appearances for the Hamptons.

On Labor Day 2019, he joined Willie Nelson’s son Lukas on stage at a party, and even entertained guests at the swanky Surf Lodge in 2018 when he took the stage at a a concert by Wyclef Jean.
