I wish I would have gone to an Extreme Thing back when The Higher or The Cab played. I don't know most of these artists, and I've never been to Extreme Thing. Not worth 20 bucks.
Bite of Las Vegas is always good. Matchbox Twenty, Phillip Phillips, and Ed Sheeran played this year. The Cab and Imagine Dragons played last year. But that's coming from a teenager who loves top 40 radio, which seems uncommon among other teenagers.
I wish Vegas had a festival with more variety, like Lollapalooza or Coachella. Maybe one day.
I did an interview with Ed Sheeran when he toured with Snow Patrol, did you get the chance to read it?
