The festival grounds included the Polo Field which was home to the Lands End Stage, the Speedway Meadow with Twin Peaks Stage and the Panhandle Stage, and finally the Lindley Meadow and the Sutro and Presido stages. Bringing in 40_60,000 attendees a day the inaugural festival was mostly a success, however was criticized for its crowd-control situation. 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 ridesharing to get to the event via SunyRide, 511, and Craig's List. The second edition of the festival was held between August 28_30, 2009 and streamed live on YouTube via the festival's YouTube account.
