Copied and pasted from another forum I post on: Now that I'm home and my brain is semi back to normal, here's some delayed thoughts: Just a small echo of Thursday being a bit tangley. After the subway and lengthy walk (more on this later) I arrived 5:30, waited 20 minutes for my wristband. Not a big deal for me, but it did suck to read others incredibly long waits. Not a good way to start a festival weekend I know. Bar lines were where I became frustrated. Everyone working the bar was miserable and slow. I suppose dealing with mobs of people start to finish would put anyone in a shit mood though.. The sets that day were all flawless. Eels, FIDLAR, Leon, bit of Pearl Jam from the back while waiting for what was my favorite set of the weekend: Kasabian. My girlfriend isn't comfortable being close up and waiting for spots, but this was both of our most anticipated sets of the weekend so we got close right side and had a god damn TIME man. Big dance party with everyone around us. Kasabian delivered big time after waiting ~4 years to see them.All problems went away after Friday. There's still the long walk from the subway station, but this isn't an uncommon thing. It was super weird going through all those warehouses though. Strange vibe.. Got in late Friday after lounging by the hotel pool all day for Jack White > Arctic Monkeys > what was supposed to be Massive Attack.. Not going to complain about it anymore. It's a major bummer, but it is what it is. Shit happens. Jack was excellent fun - but I've accepted that a Roo '14 set is out of reach again. Must keep expectations in check hehe.. I'm a HUGE AM fan, so I enjoyed their set a hell of a lot more than most it seems. New songs came across great live to me. I had a ball.Last day - fucking killer on the legs. It was go go go from HFTRR > Underworld. Back and forth to the main stages for JJ, then Queens which I don't think I've rocked out harder in my life for. We had a fun mosh/dance circle with some friendly British types. I went berserk until I nearly fell over. Had to get a little view for DM - who made me feel all the feels. But i'll save hat for the 'when you cried at a concert' thread.. I gotta say one thing about NIN. I've been a casual fan - but we got a great spot for them as the crowd was pretty thin. They blew my fucking mind. I wasn't expecting that.. Like, at all. I was wide-eyed and slack jawed watching that show. Just unbelievable. Last thing - Jet were gone for 8 years? I hadn't noticed. But that was a fun little last full show of the weekend. They seem to have a pretty dedicated fan base. Their crowd was way bigger than I anticipated. Did a bit of Underworld before my legs just said: no mate - and we had to leave. Overall I'm very happy with my decision to go and be apart of this festival. I had my reservations because of the expansion, but I'm happy with the results. The amount of amazing music I saw that weekend far outweighs any of the complaints I can come up with. This isn't a fest I would run back to - but if they continue to produce lineups like this, it'll never leave my radar.
