Hannibal Buress was even more hilarious than expected. Eric Andre is a strange dude.
If you ever go to a comedy show at Observatory NP, do not select the "GA standing" option. Those poor folks had...
Glad I have tickets to one of the Hollywood Forever shows. I felt like a sucker for buying them once I saw the NP show listed!
I missed it too. Fuck.
I got all distracted with marriage equality feels!
In case anyone is interested in this show, it's slated for 10/18 at the North Park Theatre/Observatory North Park (according to the band and venue websites)
The CRSSD people are putting on a series of Sunday shows downtown.
DJ sets are such a tease, but early bird tickets for 7/5 are available for $10...
I'm on it. Haven't bought a ticket for a show at Soma since I was out of high school.
Savages at the Casbah Sunday Aug 23rd!!!
Feeling slighty better about missing FYF now.
Still worth refreshing. Lots of folks get tickets after they are "sold out". It's a loose definition.
Not this year, I'm hoping to be super pregnant by April.
Speaking as someone who had to miss their show this past weekend... that is some serious bullshit.
That's really disappointing to hear. I hope they're able to sort it out, it's a great use of the building and such a convenient location.
Having lived right down the street for 5 years (until...
Agreed on all points. They also leave way too many lights on at the merch area and bar during sets. I've broken down and seen a few shows there, but I always leave wishing I saw whoever it was...
I haven't seen a show at the cemetery proper (just in the lodge), what time do shows usually start if the gates open at 7? Really hoping I can make it to this from SD after work.
Interesting to see they're not using Frontgate anymore: https://www.eventsprout.com/register/fyf_festival
Nobody joined him at his Bonnaroo set last year. It was really mellow.
No math, that's what their own website listed on the ticket page earlier this morning.
It looks like last year's info is populating now...
Edit: I still have it on my phone, it says
Flu free for the first time this year. Taking Tuesday off to sleep all day was key.
I am clearly going to the wrong children's birthday parties.
Also, how many times can the Cunningham and Pounds folks get married? Damn.
I had no idea Marina & the Diamonds were so big? There were dozens of people camped outside the north park theatre with chairs and everything at like 2pm yesterday. Crazy.
I wish the installation between the gobi and mojave wasn't so damn similar every year, too. It seems like it's been from the same "collection" for years now.
Mallow Mallow's smores were 2 for $5
Eureka burgers were $13 and $14 (with fries), truffle fries or riblets were $10
Some random large personal pizza in the terrace was $10
Maine lobster roll was...
This installation really made me appreciate not being at work...
Right?? I was on the lookout for those all weekend. You can't end a teaser video promising over 100k projectiles and not deliver.
And the lack of cocoon was dumb. A cocoon on Saturday with...
For some reason they didn't want to let people in the gates along the blue path (day parking) until noon on Friday, even though everything said the gates would open at 11. They let us in a bit before...
If only the Yuma tent was set up for vocals...she would've been so much better indoors. The soundbleed was terrible and I was right in the center of the tent to try to avoid it.
Also, the crowd...
What an asshole move.
Eureka in the beer barn was super good. The osso bucco riblets literally fell off the bone and the truffle fries were ridiculously good. Good burgers too, would recommend sharing unless you're...
Gonna echo everyone here and say it was a big mistake of Coachella to make such a big deal about accepting credit cards. And one of my friends was double charged on her card by the merch booth. They...
You can bring in parasols, but not umbrellas. Allegedly (I saw a few).
Still annoying (no signage and XL lockers could only be issued by one person on the right...), but much faster this year.
Definitely not. Good eye.
Friday: Allah-Las/Action Bronson > Charles Bradley > ??? > Lykke Li > Caribou > Todd Terje > Flylo > Squarepusher or AC/DC
Saturday: Until the Ribbon Breaks > Perfume Genius > Toro y Moi > Carl...
It is kind of crazy that the closest bathrooms to the entrance/exit that are not in a beer garden are all the way over by the Gobi or the new permanent ones near the Do Lab.
The separate M & F banks of potties near the Do Lab.
I'm glad this thread exists. It's my first fest since I got engaged and I didn't even consider that it might be a bad idea.
I'm guessing it's because...
Judging from the snippets above and the art installation teaser video, it looks like it will tie in to one of the pieces again :)

They have them on their "Experiences" page. Bottom left of the Amenities section.
The pay showers have outlets.
They still have pay showers, they just changed the name:
Thanks for sharing your experiences, sounds like it was a success for the most part. Will definitely be putting this on my festival calendar for next year.
For some reason I didn't realize this...
I want to know how things went for day 1! I don't even want to think of how hot it must've felt down there.
Agreed! I'm still amazed that they weren't on the Coachella lineup. Fingers crossed.
Anybody else going to see FlyLo tomorrow night?
I've done VIP twice. There are bathrooms and showers scattered around, but it is also very possible to be camped uncomfortably far from them (which is a bummer). They're cleaner than GA, the bathroom...
I passed too, just too much.
Cut Copy was amazing last night! I love that they sell out every show they have here, so much fun. It was also my first time at the re-purposed North Park Theatre, I...
