Towards the end of the notorious Wu Tang Clan show the rain started to fall fro the sky. It was not heavy yet but enough to have other fans slowly take cover for fear they would eventually get drenched, and that they did.
Previously I took a moment to talk to my friends about the plans for the rest of our evening after the Wu Tang Clan. We all agreed we had taken in enough for the weekend and chose to opt out seeing Velvet Revolver, and both festival closers 311 and Smashing Pumpkins. It may not have been the most wise decision but it was a smart one as we were all tired and wanted to hit the road and go home. The dry dusty race track slowly turned into a sloppy muddy mess as we packed up the vehicle.
The festival, without a doubt, was more entertaining than last year's as there were twice the amount of bands and more interactive activities. The crowd seemed happier and fuller. The food was in fact not too pricey as compared to other festivals I attended and included one of my new favorites, crab cake sandwiches. I did stay away from drinking alcohol because we all know what happens when you drink too much… you forget most of the show. I myself wanted to take in as much as I could and not forget anything. This year's Virgin Festival is going to be a tough act to follow and I am looking forward to seeing what is in store for the Virgin Fest in 2008.
