Well the TMD Staff and Myself we're out full force at Virgin Fest yesterday and what a day it was...Beastie Boys, Ben Harper, Paoloa Nutini, Peter, Bjorn and John, Modest Mouse, Police, Incubus, Fountains of Wayne, LCD Soundsystem and more tore up the stages.
The majority of the day everything went smoothly festival wise, bands went on as scheduled Beastie Boys had a few slight problems with a guitar and at the end of the night Modest Mouse would seem to take the brunt of the problems, came on about 15 minutes late, after every song they were adjusting and fixing, but they still put on a great show despite some technical difficulties.
Thank you to everyone who stopped by the booth on your way between stages it was great to see so many TMD'ers!
If you are heading down today here are some recommendations based on yesterday:
-Bring A Camel Pack, Larger Waterbottles or Just Enough Money to buy as many $3 water bottles as you need, refilling stations were scarce and took about 45-55 minutes to get to
-Mist tents...make sure you find the cold water showers, get wet enough and they just might give you a free towel
-Sunscreen might be a good idea afterall no matter how much of a "man" or "woman" you are...the sun was beating down 95% of the time
-Comfortable shoes...my legs are a little sore from my flip flops
-Breatheable clothing, unless all black, jeans and dripping in your own sweat is your thing
-Mist Bottles, seemed to be semi-popular and very refreshing
-Crabcake sandwhiches and pretzels definitely worth it, not that expensive either
Enjoy! See you down there, or tune in as we broadcast live from Virgin Festival Day 2
