    Avicii, Alesso, SHM, Ingrosso, Calvin Harris and Martin Solveig all tied for first... Because they all played the exact same sets. I couldn't pick a winner.

    SHM had the most lasers though, so they probably win.

    Hey, when did you get to the MS and what kind of view did you have of Radiohead? I heard to get there before the Shins to get a really good view, but I'm not so fond of the Shins and wanted to finish up St. Vincent before heading over there.
