    So I'm guessing parking at the actual fest is gonna be pretty much impossible?

    Security's thorough searches started at 2:10, they let people scan their wristbands and enter at 2:15.

    Where's the gate entrance you're talking about?

    NM, he means walk to 39th. There's no reason to wait In line.

    Yeah that's what we did somewhat innocently. What a big mess. A huge line to get into another line to get into more lines... What is the point of that?

    Supposedly they are letting people with regular wristbands thru the VIP entrance. Few tweets confirming this, since the main line entrance is FUBAR.

    Want food? Hope you have an hour (or two for lobster). 2009 lives on.

    Need caffeine or electrolytes? Too bad because Coke and Gatorade are apparently contraband. Just wasted the last 40 minutes on a snipe hunt.

    Yeah, no Darkside for me unless they open the seats. Ugh.

    So bullshit aside, boris, Slowdive, little dragon, slint, angel Olsen were all ace. Great sound all around, too.

    Not being snarky- you boardies are a tough bunch! I freely admit to pretty much giving up the ghost on the whole thing today and made the call to leave, only to make it work at the last minute thanks to Zack's advice. Once inside, I was pretty relieved to find most of you had also figured out route in.

    There was a lot "meh" things about the setup- long walks, and a dumbass line for the arena. But I've got to hand it to the sound engineers. This is the best sounding festival I've ever attended. It could probably be louder at almost every stage, but overall they really nailed it.

    Easily the best highlight for me tonight was Slowdive. They sounded like they've never been gone. Machine Gun maybe the best song but they were all great. And thanks to TallChris and others for recommending Slint- they're truly incredible and I'm now hooked!

    See you all tomorrow.

    It's just a joke how many obstacles there are to walk around to get from one stage to another. Throw in the clusterfucks around every corner and this location is just shit.

    Had I not been on the board I would've been stuck in that line for hours. Thanks for the tip. Managed to get in just in time for Slint. They were great

    Ty Segall and Run The Jewels saved the day, though. Insanity, both of them.

    What a poorly run event. Hopefully tomorrow they get their shit together. Too many I problems I don't even want to list them.

    Slowdive was far better live than I anticipated. Interpol and Phoenix brought their best stuff today too. Great day

    Typical FYF. Great bands and performances mixed with logistical nightmares all around.

    Anyone know what happened to the Arena? I was able to pass through just to get to the other side earlier in the day until they shut it all down. That would have been an enormous help in regard to all the gridlock at night.
