20140620 5:45 PM - 6:45 PM @ The Backyard Stage:
At the Backyard Stage, there were two sets of speakers placed about one hundred feet in front of stage left and stage right. Arriving to the stage area after listening to Iron & Wine, we walked past the set of speakers on our right (pictured below). Unfortunately, possibly due to sound cancellation, the music volume had dropped considerably and the band was essentially inaudible. As such, we opted to sit behind those same set of speakers.

However, instead of being super quiet, the music was now super loud, and so I put in a pair of earplugs. After a couple of songs, we moved to an area past the set of speakers on our left where both the volume and view was great.

As for the music, I had realized after watching Portugal. The Man's performance that I have heard and enjoyed many songs by them.
