    Weekend 2 is chill. Not so many obnoxious costumes and poles and banners. The weather is awesome so far. There have been less sound problems, and performers have finished without their mics being silenced so far. Still too many teens with cell phones, texting and talking throughout performances. The local rag says that performers have moved up their popular songs earlier in their sets.

    However, I couldn't find a booth all day that had a setlist guide nor Camp magazine. I guess they didn't print as many.

    I would rather just do both weekends so I can hang out with boardies without thinking I'm missing an act, see acts I wouldn't want to see and give them a chance, have no conflicts , see what happens with artist (like I'm awaiting to see how Beck wk2 set is going to be like), more people watching, less of a chance of missing an act, see acts that people were talking about the weekend before in camp.

    I don't think GPS does "straight."
    Its like the Infinite Monkey Theorem, if you put X amount of monkeys in a room with a typewriter and ask them to give you Shakespeare 99% of them will fling their shit at you while the other 1% will masturbate in the corner.

    Weekend 2 is definitely better, but the correct answer is both weekends!

    I guess you were not at AFI--the mics got cut off several times. I think that the guy is cursed--this happened to him at a KROQ festival a while back--had to go through 3 or 4 mics. During Weekend 1 I did not see people trying to "rage" at Afghan Whigs. Weekend 1 the guards were a lot more cheerful, and we got to sit in the grass in the shade to wait for gates to open. Weekend 2 we had to stand in the dirt by the port-a-pottties breathing in exhaust from a parade of golf carts, construction vehicles (why was there a forklift with a ton of dirt heading in to the gates????). Weekend 1 was a lot less crowded at the sets I went to, and there were less people playing bumper cars... Weekend 2 people seem more rude--and some idiot even tried to start a fight with me. Weekend 1 weather was hotter, but less humid, so I didn't get as tired. Only 1 day so far, but Weekend 1 > Weekend 2 this time.

    W1 has all the mystery, but if/when I do return I might opt for W2 because I'm too old to keep up with the unknowns.

    Yes. A few drops of rain. I was actually hoping for more. I love how one of the main advantages of weekend one is always "green grass" ... Does anyone REALLY even care about how green the grass is?

    It does look allot smoother.

    Honestly I'm getting REALLY fucking tired of the Weekend One weather. Weekend Two may be hotter but goddammit, I am fucking TIRED of these windstorms ruining some of my most anticipated sets. At least last year it was just Sunday which was a shitty mainstage day anyway, but having to see Muse perform with literally NO speakers anywhere in the field was just sad as shit.

    Just wait. I bet at the Sigma Chi chapter meeting this Sunday the brothers unanimously vote to do Sahara Semiformal at Weekend 2 2015.

    I was looking at friends photos from weekend 2 and there wasn't grass. Maybe it's just around the stages, but I can't imagine the dust. Stagecoach must be a dust bowl.

    I did Weekend 2 in 2012, and I can attest to the fact that more than one artist commented on how much better things were running. There were a few groups that commented on better sound, less problems with gear and generally more enthused crowds.
