Pinelands Music Festival
New Jersey Motorsports Park; Millville, NJ
August 15th, 2015

Lineup:
The lineup was pretty solid, featuring big names such as The Early November, The Spill Canvas, Hellogoodbye, X Ambassadors, and Jukebox the Ghost among others. A-

Crowds:
Each stage at Pinelands (a total of three) was so far away from each other all of the crowds seemed to be dispersed evenly though-out. The one crowd that stood out to me the most was The Spill Canvas. Being the ten year anniversary of “One Fell Swoop,” fans near and far flocked to their set to hear the album in its entirety. B

Grounds:
The area was really clean, even with the lack of garbage cans. Then you have the stage layout which was really nice with two main stages about 200 feet away from each other, and a third stage on the other side of the grounds. Sets were alternated allowing for no overlapping, which was a bonus. B

Weather:
It was a bright sunny day down in the Pinelands. Downside, it was way too dry and humid. B

Amenities:
I noticed there were no charging stations at the festival, unless you had VIP, which was unfortunate for those who needed it. There were two areas filled with porta- potties on both sides and all the food at the festival was supplied by different food trucks. Covering a wide variety of foodie meals, I myself had the Pulled Pork Mac N Cheese. A

Overall:
All in all, it’s really hard to judge a festival during its first year because there is still plenty of bugs they need to work out. To some people that is expected and to others it is not. Although there was a bit of delay on the main stage, it definitely wasn’t enough to stop me from coming back. B
