We had a promotion that morning there, so I got there at about 9:30am and just stuck around for the rest of the day. The gates opened at 1pm and the festival started at 2pm, so I hung with my friend (and record rep) S. My friends and coworkers started trickling in, throughout the afternoon.
Seriously, at one point I was walking through the amphitheatre and every seat was empty. COOLEST thing ever. S and I both agreed that an empty theatre is even more chilling than a packed one.
