Our big music festival in SD just happened.
Bands or performers (they have comedy and food performers as well) I thought were good to amazing:
Muse (my highlight of the festival)/Red Hot Chili Peppers/Dan Band (of the movie "Old School" fame)/Tom Petty/David Spade/Weezer
Bands I'd never pay to see, but enjoyed seeing:
Jason Derulo/Pink/David Guetta/X Ambassadors
Bands that made me think, "oh yeah...I remember them. I used to love them":
Lowlight of the entire festival was listening to Jane Says (great song) by Jane's Addiction, while two girls were swinging above the stage, connected to ropes that attached to two piercings that went through their shoulders. Perry Farrel is a freak, and not in a good way. Actually that was a bit judgmental. Apologies. Let's just say, I didn't enjoy it.
After last year I decided 2 nights was plenty and skipped Friday. I think they greatly expanded the concert area on top of re-configuring things which made for a better experience. They still have work to do on the getting in n out but that seemed better also. It was nice to see sincere efforts to making it a better experience.
Guess Im more of an old timer than you. My faves were Toad the Wet Sprocket, Jane's Addiction and Pink on Saturday. Then Live and Jackson Browne.
Regardless of what you liked sounds like you had a good experience also.
