The best part was sitting in Blakes and watching the straight men walk into the bar. Most of them figured it out within 5 seconds.

I thought it was a decent show. Florence + the Machine was the best part for me. Friday was nice and relaxed. Saturday was a hot mess. Way too many people. I was one of the crowd sitting on the hill on my blanket. We had to deal with people from below ramming their way up the hill which was quite annoying. Besides tons of people stepping on me and my stuff, bumping me, etc., one girl actually totally clobbered me- knocked me down and sent my glasses flying. By that point, I had enough. They needed more food trucks. A girl sitting next to me had to wait in line over an hour for a slice of pizza. Wow. I was smarter and waiting till Pearl Jam was playing. :-) No line for Com by that point.

The bathroom situation was absolutely horrible. It was horrible last year as well. Something needs to be done about this. We were in line for almost an hour and a girl in my party actually peed her pants because she literally could not hold it anymore. Might I suggest a similar set-up as the Port-a-Potties at 420 fest? Basically a whole mess of them (50-60) in an open square formation, rather than in a line. Also, troughs for the men.

Glad you could leave and come back this year. It was so crowded and hot I had to leave to the rest of the [quiet] park for about 15 minutes to cool down and catch my breath. Having a smashed up spot near the stage for hours at a time while drinking and... can really leave a person dehydrated and claustrophobic! But Florence was absolutely awesome, Eddie Vedder didn't make too much fun of GA (it was hilarious and sad to hear all the people cheer his statement that in this great state a student can't use a student id to vote but anyone can use a firearm license to vote...it was a comment about society people, not something to brag about, LoL). Judging by the crowd, this festival is ready for more modern day bands (in addition to classics of course). Counterpoint is going to be for the kiddies, but pulling in a couple of the larger acts from that festival to entertain the older college/20s crowd at Music Midtown would definitely go a long way next year. Still keep the Pearl Jams and the Coldplays though!
