Fancy pants music festivals hold absolutely no grandeur for me. Just a bunch of rowdy, smelly, probably drunk people packed together pretending to have a good time while listening to mostly awful music.
Well seeing as I've been to 7 music festivals, let me show you what kind of "mostly awful music" I've seen. And I've never been to ACL but have always wanted to and if I lived in Austin, I would not hesitate one second about going. To me there's something great about singing your heart out in a crowd of 70,000 people to the song you love.
I'm sure you don't care about any of these acts, but I think your concept of a music festival is highly skewed. Don't knock it till you try it.
So without further ado, my festival pictures of awesomeness.
Kings of Leon
Ben Harper & Relentless7
Yeah Yeah Yeahs
Rage Against the Machine
The Black Keys
