Waka! Rusa! Waka! Rusa!

20+ hours of live music. Just think about that.

And I only saw a fraction of the festival.

Awards for bands that I saw:

Best Music to Jam too:
Railroad Earth
Runner Up:
Cracker

Best Display of Skill and Talent:
Bela Fleck and the Flecktones
Runner Up:
Buckethead

Best Stage Show:
The Flaming Lips

No one could compete with the Lips for their show. It was awesome. Let me paint you a picture.

Imagine a large stage with a giant video screen in the back showing music videos. The Flaming Lips performing in front of the screen with Superman, Wonder Woman, and Captain America working as stagehands. To the right, 20 people dressed as Santa Claus dancing. To the Left, 20 people dressed as space aliens dancing. Confetti streamers being shot out over the crowd. 10 balloons, 6 feet in diameter, bouncing over the audience. Seeded throughout the crowd were people with hundreds of glow bracelets that they threw forward creating the illusion it was raining neon. All the while 10,000 people singing Yashimi Battles the Pink Robots.

Couple that with an actual on stage marriage proposal, a nun hand puppet, a human hamster ball crowd surf, a smoking megaphone, and a Bohemian Rhapsody cover. It was awesome.
