Finally back home. Had a blast myself, but it appears that the heat this year combined with the ever-more-divided crowd (the festival has incorporated more and more EDM over the years, so the ratio of inexperienced young ravers and older hippies is closer to 50:50 than it ever has been) led to a lot of problems for others.

It was also weird because a lot of people I’m used to seeing weren’t there this year. But still, I enjoyed myself, even if it wasn’t my favorite year.

Bands I saw in order of how awesome their sets were:

  1. moe.
  2. EOTO
  3. Lettuce
  4. Tipper
  5. Future Rock
  6. The Werks
  7. STS9
  8. Cypress Hill
  9. Pigeons Playing Ping Pong
  10. Phil Lesh
  11. Aqueous
  12. Kung Fu
  13. Umphrey’s McGee
  14. Beats Antique

Worst Set All Weekend Award goes to Led Zeppelin 2, possibly the cringiest tribute band I’ve ever seen.

Sets I’m upset that I missed due to the heat or scheduling:

  • Keller Williams
  • Yonder Mountain String Band
  • John Medeski’s Mad Skillet
  • Horseshoes and Hand Grenades
  • Keys & Krates
  • STS9 late night Barn set
  • Victor Wooten Trio
  • Sun Stereo Battles the Pink Robots
