    St Vincent came out with Bleachers? Same set as last week with her just subbing in Carly Rae’s place? Or does anyone know if the setlist was different?

    i saw some things this weekend....

    humblebrag time, met ariana backstage after kygo (i didn't see the set as i had to go watch belly for our work). she was super friendly. wish i'd asked for a photo!

    beyonce fans are the literal worst.

    bleachers was great, as was sigrid. really enjoyed miguel who my gf loves and she got to dance with Børns during too so she was super stoked.

    i must have had to scan my wristband at least 100 times over the weekend

    Intense! The first day I was up for practically 48 hours. I left my house at midnight, got to the camping line at 2:30 and didn’t get into my spot until 9am...
    It was extremely hot but very manageable with my schedule having a lot of day time acts in tents.
    Friday: Elohim, Fazerdaze, The Marias, Kali Uchis, The Neighbourhood (regretting not going to Bleachers), Vince Staples, St Vincent, SZA, The Weeknd
    Saturday: Sir Sly, Sigrid, Borns/Brockhampton, David Byrne, Tyler the Creator, Haim, Beyoncé
    Sunday: Japanese Breakfast, Hayley Kiyoko, Cardi B, Portugal the Man, Miguel, like half of Eminem

    Only really negative aspect was with how tired I was, I sat at the back for a couple sets. I felt like this year was a lot less crowded than last.

    Haha your list really was a lot like mine! I totally agree about the crowded aspect, I think a lot of it actually is due to the re-arranging of the stages. I never even came close to the Sahara which meant a lot of Sahara kids weren't in my space either!q

    trying to get to the sahara for French Montana was a mission. That side of the festival felt like a different world, so was glad I only needed to be there for FM. His set seemed a lot better than the shambles of weekend 1 on the live stream. Those screens were ridiculous big

    I downloaded a bunch of the sets that were livestreamed, watching Miguel's set at my desk right now and wishing I was back out there!

    Weekend 1 or 2? I’ve gone weekend 2 for 3 times now and I’m debating switching it up
  18. irthesteve

    formerly irthesteve Prestigious

    Weekend 1. I've now done weekend one 3x in a row, then weekend two 3x in a row, and again back to weekend 1 last year... my overall thought is that weekend 1 is better.

    Especially this year, I didn't feel like weekend 1 was any MORE busy honestly. The benefits of having green grass plus knowing NONE of the surprises outweighs the negatives for me.

    Maybe so, maybe not.

    Your experience outweighs mine (weekend one 2x, weekend two 1x) but I feel like the weekend 2 people always have all tech issues and such sorted out so more people start on time and sound better.

    EDIT: The fresh green grass is soooooo tight though.

    While true, I personally have never dealt with any of the tech issues that made a big difference. I didn't see the Radiohead issues, which I am thankful for, and even though SZA and Kali Uchis both complained about their weekend 1 sets themselves, I loved them both. Maybe I am just easier to please, I loved the Outkast Weekend 1 set, so what do I know :-)
