Better than: Listening to Live 105 for 12 consecutive hours.
True to its name, Live 105's BFD was a big fucking deal yet again this year. We're talking more than three dozen acts on four stages for 12 continuous hours of live music and kick-off-the-summer party mayhem. The price was reasonable — lawn tickets with up-close access to all but the main stage for a mere $10 — and kids of all ages were out in force on an ecstatic mission: to bask in the South Bay sun, soak up the sounds of favorite bands, and drink and dance until puking or passing out (or both). On all fronts, Bay Area concertgoers did not disappoint.
