How bad did it rain up there?  How was the whole thing?  Did everyone love Chvrches?

When I left it was a slow cold steady rain, most were managing with umbrellas.  Not sure if it picked up later in the evening.

Had a fun day at the festival.

Saw Chvurches and enjoyed that a lot.
Saw a few minutes of Icona Pop: didn't like;
Ate a grilled cheese: liked a lot;
went into the pavilion for the rest of the day and saw City and Colour: was pleasant but not engaging?; Then MGMT who had technical problems (with their monitors?) that seemed to bum them out: their video/graphics were (to me) more engaging than their music (especially the shrimp-headed umbrella topped hermaphroditic creatures);
then Avett Brothers: really enjoyed every aspect of that show.
Left at that point and was back to DC in around 45 minutes despite a deluge of rain the entire way. To me this year seemed much better attended than last year, and much younger crowd.
Thanks to all of the MPP and IMPsters for a great event.
