This year's event was a success by nearly every measure, drawing huge numbers (31,000 over two days, up from 12,000 last year) and delivering excellent sets by big-name acts. The festival's new partnership with C3 Presents, the company that also puts on Austin City Limits and Lollapalooza, seems to have paid dividends.
