As a diabetic I had some pop tarts in my knapsack (and was prepared to to declare it as a medical necessity because of the heat, etc.) and as a result of the loooooong lines (I spoke with fellow concertgoers and 90 minutes was an underestimation) those were what I consumed that day! Someone I spoke with waited in line for over 2 hours, and when near the front was told the booth was out of food; rumors abounded that another booth out of food were selling plain rolls for $2. On her way there she encountered an enterprising (greedy? opportunistic??) young man selling the 4 $8.00 burgers he had for $13.00 each! This is not my idea of a good time!
And with 2 stages why a 30-60 minute wait between sets? Nateva in 2010 had 2 stages, and the flow between acts was seamless.
The smoking ban was ignored and unenforced, but at least most smokers hung by the outlaying fences
On the plus side, I appreciate I didn't have to buy water to stay hydrated, Lack of shade was an issue for me, as I'm not a sun worshipper, but for an outdoor show, I suppose it's the nature of the beast.
I wasn't overly impressed with the daytime acts, though they were pleasant enough, But the Dropkicks had a great (though brief) set and Mumford & Sons made the day worth it! And fireworks to boot!!
I feel if we were stop #4 in the GotR tour rather than the premiere, it might have gone smoother. but all in all it was a great day for Portland, Mumford & Sons, me, and my 15,000 other concert buddies!
