The rain, which began as an epic mood setter for the crooning Fleet Foxes, seemed to have something to prove on our first day at Liberty State Park. And although my shoes, purse, camera, and so on were basically ruined, my ears were not in the least bit disappointed– a pleasant surprise from a festival that I was, quite honestly, meh about.
We’ll try our best to live tweet it up tomorrow (if the weather complys), as the highlights of the day now seem to have happened days (not just hours) ago. Personal fave was definitely Jay-Z opening with a “No Sleep ‘Til Brooklyn” cover, not to mention the Get Well MCA band around Karen O’s arm. And in case you didn’t get the memo, APW has announced that anyone with ticket stubs from Friday can enjoy an extra day of musical festivities, since that heavenly downpour was such a pain in our water logged fingers.
Lots more photos after the jump…

Is this how we throw our diamonds up?
