Lead signer Dave Grohl was whipping the crowd to a frenzy with the Foo Fighters final song “Everlong” when there was silence. The promoters had cut off the sound. The 10 p.m. curfew had arrived.
The silence was greeted by jeers from the Foo Fighters fans in the crowd. Many took to social media to voice their anger.
Other headliners over the fifth annual version of the three-day festival were Petty & The Heartbreakers, Maroon 5, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Modest Mouse, Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals, The Roots, Silversun Pickups, Band of Horses and Fitz & The Tantrums.
This year’s festival included a total of 85 musical performances and drew more than 120,000 people.
