    It wouldn't have bothered me that much if they hadn't ADVERTISED that water was going to be $2 on the website. It was just a blatant lie.

    free water until 6pm definitely makes up for it though. Really glad to see they seem to have realized how much they fucked yesterday up and are attempting to do what they can to make today better.

    A few updates on Twitter. Entry points have been "expanded." Open at 1:30.

    One more gripe I forgot about yesterday - for all the overzealous security guards, what was with none of them stopping people from sitting ON TOP OF the barricades surrounding the sound booth at the main stage? Part of the reason I like being at the sound booth is so I have a bit of an opening to be able to see the stage. Not happening when half a dozen people's asses are at the same level as my face.

    I had some asshat attempt to put a dollar in his own tip jar when handing me back change for my $3 dollar water. It was like they trained everyone working this fest to be a dick.

    LOL all those replies are hilarious to me. I had no idea what was going on I guess... Damn. What's worse is we asked where we go to get into the festival and security specifically guided a large group of people coming from the opposite through that fence opening.

    They'e opened the seating in the Arena.

    Here catching Jessy Lanza and I'd say there's a fair amount of people parking their asses on the seats, at least on the right side.

    Slowdive, Slint, Interpol, and Grimes were sooo good yesterday. Avey Tare's Slasher Flicks and Real Estate were solid as well. Overall great day yesterday even with the later Arena clusterfuck.

    security was a breeze but ymmv. getting into the arena for les sins was just as I would hope, just walked in. there's a bunch of seating so the only thing that might be a problem later on is getting onto the floor. other than that it's been a complete reversal of yesterday in terms of organization. today should be great.

    the vibe is way different today. seems incredibly less crowded. floor on the arena is pretty empty right now. also i think the 6000 capacity estimate for the floor is more likely than the 3,000 that security guard quoted.

    In the back of the arena for Daniel Avery right now and it isn't at all crowded. Lots of breathing room on the floor and entire sections of seats empty. Not to mention, nobody is being turned away. This is the way it should have been yesterday.

    Scratch that, they still can't arena properly. Only one entrance and it is a huge clusterfuck to get inside for darkside. Arena isn't at all full, either. And if you want to move from floor to seats you have to leave and get back into clusterfuck because they are blocking the up escalators. Why? Fuck you, that's why.

    Daniel Avery and Blood Orange were great. Calling it an early night though. Kind of wish my drunk as ran into some boardies for Avery. I'm too old for this shit.

    I was heading for the exit and sat down to catch my breath for some flying lotus. And holy shit, so glad I did. Best set of the night. Not going to bother with the strokes.

    Better today, but still the worst FYF ever. Blood Brothers, Caribou and Darkside made it all worth it in the end...

    A lot of really good sets today. much better, but still crowded. Sound for Deafheaven was terrible, so we left after a few songs. The only sound issue of the whole fest though.

    Today was much better! They opened the gates early and brought the line in from 2 sides so I got in much quicker.

    Opening the seats was so much better and the arena never reached capacity but almost did for Darkside.

    It was a sardine squeeze fest to get into Darkside as people tried to get into the arena.

    It still seemed crowded but not as congested, I think some people just gave up and didn't make the second day.

    I wish they had thought of opening the seats earlier in the arena so I didn't have to miss Caribou and Chet Faker.

    yeah I left after that as well. it was a good way to end the weekend and I was too tired to walk 10 minutes plus to go stand in the back for the Strokes. it was different than any of the sets I've seen him do previously. some of that had to do with his new material, but he also just played lots of songs/styles that I'd never really heard him play live before. I'm not describing it well, maybe it was the way he paced it. but yeah, it was great. the new shit sounded crazy. it was also the only set of the weekend that seemed loud enough.

    I really regret going to see Mac DeMarco over Ryan Hemsworth. What a bore. I like a few of his songs and I've been hearing about how his live show is really good, but I couldn't really figure out why. I left about 15 minutes early. maybe the ending was better.

    all in all, today was much better. still too crowded and walks between stages were such a pain. but they did a lot to try to make-up for yesterday and for that I am thankful.

    Everything about today was superb. It almost made me forget how shitty and frustrating yesterday turned out to be. I'm glad I decided to stay and withstand that insane crowd before the Strokes because they did not disappoint. Props to the people in charge for turning this thing around and ending on a high note.
