I highly suggest it. It's super fun and not scary at all. There was good vibe, I felt safe. The sound systems were awesome (do wear earplugs, it really really loud, I mean good), indie, rock and techno were all good. I had a blast last year and I camped out in the dessert too.

Great list of performers E! I can't believe Armin Van Buuren is going to be there, that in itself my make it worth going for me.
