How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
First City was a great festival in terms of small crowds, a sweet lineup and cool venue. It was easy and timely to navigate the fairgrounds between stages/acts. The food could be better but overall it was satisfying with I Love Spicy Pie, customizable choco tacos and zesty garlic fries. (I live in SF and Outside Lands Festival food is hard to compare!) The water station was top notch!! Quick, fast-flowing water, in the middle of the festival so it was easy to get to. The only negative notes were that the ticket system could have been streamlined, the rides more integrated in to the set up of the festival and cheaper beer :). Overall, it was a very relaxed atmosphere with some cool bands and acts. Purity Ring was an absolutely awesome experience! Plus, planes flying overhead mid-set was sooooo cool! Great time!
