    Oh boy it was an absolute shitshow lol , no bathroom lines though because no one could ever get a drink

    They can’t control the heat obviously but they can control drink lines & accessible water . They put out a statement saying they were going to fix it overnight , unless they’re adding more concessions & 300 more workers. Not sure how they can

    Still had a blast though, the main stage for DMB is massive. Need to get a spot early and camp till they come on

    I mean I wasn’t at Fyre Festival, but it was pretty brutal. I’m pretty chill on most things but an hour wait for an unmanned water bottle filler is a little tough to swallow. The two hours for beer really worked against them, as I ended up spending much less than I might have. They are promising it’ll be better today, but some of the problems feel more systemic. Not sure how you get additional workers on 12 hours notice. (Note: the workers that are there are working their butts off, so hats off to them). Feels a little like they are trying to make up for pandemic losses by understaffing/providing fewer amenities. They can’t do anything about the weather, but the rest felt like poor planning.

    It is today’s lineup I really got the tix for though, so I’ll roll the dice. As my wife said “optimism is going back for day two.”

    Tough day yesterday. Managed to wait less than an hour in lines…just had to be smart with the stage schedules to find the right ones. Made it tough to see much music. The only full set I saw was MMJ which was the main reason for going. Hoping today is a bit smoother. Expecting a pretty standard festival set from DMB but maybe we’ll get a surprise or two. Any word on a DMB specific poster?

    That was really god damn fun.

    Relentless set. The Two Step opener is one of the biggest "holy shit" moments in my 76 shows. Not a dud all night, including Jimi Thing which (not surprisingly) elicited the biggest response from the casual crowd.

    This was the last of 6 summer DMB shows (Grand Rapids is coming up in November), and while it may not have been the best overall show I saw, it may have been the most fun. It's as if the band just said "F it, we only have 2 hours" and went for it.

    Best summer tour I've seen since 2013, and I don't think I'm just saying that because they'd been off the road for 18 months.

    By the way, the two headliners (MMJ and DMB) are neck and neck for best set of the festival. There's a reason they're both mainstays and as good as other bands were this weekend, it's next level stuff when those two bands take the stage.

    I didn't think DMB could pull off a set I enjoyed as much as MMJ last night, but a Two Step opener goes a long way towards that.

    Credit where credit is due… much better today, Railbird. As for Dave… Fun set, great energy, and it was my first show back which got me more in the feels that anticipated. Definitely got me to an 11 for my Gorge trip.

    Railbird did a complete 180 today…zero complaints. Did Band of Horses>Khrungbin>DMB which is tough to beat.

    It was my 50th show and with it being a festival all I wanted was one surprise…and boy did that happen right off the bat! I’ve always really wanted a Two Step opener and couldn’t believe it was happening. A definite all-time DMB highlight for me. The rest of the set was perfect for a festival and hardcore alike. The energy never stopped and I even enjoyed Jimi. Crowd was into it as well. Seeing my two favorite live bands back to back nights (DMB and MMJ) made me quickly forget about the day one lines and heat. Can’t wait for the Gorge!

    This is my first festival show. Second show this summer (TPA). So much fun having a non stop high energy set. I will say the non-Dave festival crowd was a bit annoying (more interested in the insta picture and not knowing the song Sledgehammer - it came out before I was born too but how do you not know Peter Gabriel?). But I'd go to another festival Dave show in an instant (well maybe not Railbird... What a shitshow).

    Any luck on where to find a poster? It was my 25th show! Not a huge poster guy - but wanted to get my hands on this one!

    Got there super early yesterday and they were already sold out. I'm not a big poster guy but always get one when DMB plays anywhere in KY. Only place I've seen them is eBay ranging from $150 to $300

    DMB set was power packed and a great show for a general festival audience.


    Saw an excellent MMJ set the night before but Dave and the guys can both deliver the musicianship but also entertain.


    Impressive.


    The DMB poster was only sold on Sunday and was gone by 4pm. I was happy to snag one...Methane Studios delivered and to me is one of the best of this tour so far.

    I was wondering when the poster sold out…got in at 5 and unsurprisingly were gone. And I agree on MMJ…top 5 band for me and they definitely played a great show. But DMB is on a different level in terms of a headliner and owning that stage. Great music all around both days!

    Agree with this. I rocked out super hard to MMJ - so hard, my neck was sore from headbanging during Mahgeetah and One Big Holiday.

    But DMB made a statement on Sunday. I had a friend who was getting texts from his buddies, VERY casual Dave fans, all expressing some variation of "holy shit this is a set!"

    They really owned the stage the way a headliner should. Those old guys can still bring it.

    Not sure when they sold out, but with a run of 515 on a poster that good (and locally relevant) it couldn't have taken long.... It was open re-entry so we got there shortly after gates opened around 1230, got our poster then left to tailgate until Revivalists played at 445.
