Didn’t seem like the crowd liked most of the acts on the main going off of the stream. IF you watch some of the fan shot videos, the reactions are much better.

The crowd didn’t take to well to Blur it didn’t look like on the live feed, and Albarn looked less than amused most of the time. I thought they sounded great none the less. That has to be very odd to be a huge band across the pond and then barely be able to rile up the crowd at what is suppose to be North America’s most diverse and eclectic festival.
