I would see neither band.
I would see neither band.
was def planning on checking out half of Deerhunter's set. still in conflicts tho
just in case anyone missed out, they just released some more single day tickets.
Is there a live stream? I need to see that Kanye set somehow.
Did they cancel or was the entire fest halted cause of weather?
Beach House also tweeting their set was cut short tonight.
Unfortunate, pretty awesome lineup but sounds like a disaster.
I was there from ~2 through 6.30. Of Monsters and Men were *awesome*. But ... it was cold, and very, very, very, very wet - NY got hit with the remnant of tropical storm Andrea and it *dumped* on us. All afternoon. Well before I left all of the grass in the entire venue had turned to mud, and much of the field was deep enough in mud that it would overflow tennis shoes. By 3pm they'd rolled up the video screens because of wind (it was hilarious watching the little tiny bit which showed out the bottom of the roll-up, still showing a broadcast). I can easily imagine that in the dark things turned unsafe.
Day 2 was a lot better although there was still tons of mud. Great sets from Japandroids, Fucked Up, Cut Copy, tons of people for Kendrick Lamar. I was extremely disappointed with Animal Collective, however. They started things off with "Did You See the Words" and had a great mix going. Halfway through "What Would I Want? Sky" Avey stopped to request a sound check and they picked things back up for "My Girls" and "Peacebone" but only made it halway though "Purple Bottle" before Avey stopped short again and ended their set 10 minutes early. A pretty shitty thing to do to the fans they braved the conditions to stick around all day to see the band.
Mud. A lot of it
I'ma ball at the mall shuttin' down the sea wall

an extremely muddy but fun weekend. the rain was reallllly bad on friday. feist played one song and stopped, beach house played a few and stopped. only fully/officially canceled sets were kings of leon and pretty lights. kings of leon ended up playing saturday anyway. the weather was great the rest of the weekend, but there was mud. and more mud. and then some more. as long as you had boots though, it was fine. best sets i saw were cut copy, foals, divine fits, nas, deerhunter and kanye. i was most excited for and most disappointed by animal collective. agreed with the person above.. it was really shitty of them to just give up on the songs and stop early. well, it was more dave than the others it seemed like. bummer. until nex year.
