I admit it, whenever I pull a festival assignment I piss and moan with the best of them. The days are long, the gear is heavy, the food sucks, and something expensive always ends up covered in something cheap and sticky. Despite all this, there’s a rare and beautiful part of music that only exists at festivals, which is why I’ve attended The Bamboozle three years in a row.

The highlights of year’s lineup included Wiz Khalifa, Dashboard Confessional, Das Racist, New Found Glory, Travie McCoy, A Day to Remember, and a no-holds-barred (or is it no-bars-can-hold?) performance by none other than Lil Wayne.

Here’s a few of my favorite photos from The Bamboozle 2011.
