I was going to wait until my 3,000 post to start this thread but fuck it, I'll just do it now. What festivals have you been to? What are the best and worst festivals you've attended? I'm curious to find out who has been to what festivals. I'm sure many of us were at the same fests and didn't realize it. I know there's lots of people that have good festival stories that they could share.

I've been to many smaller, jamband fests that aren't really worth mentioning. I always had a good time though. I went to lots of Scribblejams too.
And probably around 10 or so fests at this awesome venue: http://www.nlqp.com/ Check out the quarry pictures, that place is beautiful, it has to rival the Gorge and Red Rocks.
Some of the highlights there were STS9 and P-Funk.
The worst festival I've been to was probably either Ozzfest 05 or warped tour. The best festival I've ever been to was easily Bonnaroo 07, even without MMJ. Every set I saw was great other than the Police. The Tool show was the best show I've ever seen, better than Portishead.
