The first edition occurred from August 22 to 24, 2008, and included over 60 musical acts from around the world. The festival grounds included the Polo Fields, Hellman’s Hollow/Speedway Meadow, and Lindley Meadow. Bringing in 40,000 to 60,000 attendees a day, the inaugural festival was mostly a success; however, it was criticized for its lack of crowd control. The festival was also geared to the new green movement and included numerous initiatives to make the festival eco-friendly, like inviting participants to use public transport to get to the event via Muni. The second edition of the festival was held between August 28 and 30, 2009, and streamed live on YouTube via the festival’s YouTube account. The festival is produced by Another Planet Entertainment, Superfly Presents, and Starr Hill Presents.
