The Not So Fun Side of Fun Fun Fun Fest 2013
Comedy = Good, Comedy Tent = Tragic

It's nice to see the festival taking comedy seriously and booking big names like Tenacious D, but the area they've designated for comedy performances is far too small and does a disservice to those names. Either give the big names time on a real stage or ditch the tent and add another big stage. People want to see Patton Oswalt, but they don't want to miss a bunch of bands they like because the only way they'll have the chance to is to camp in the comedy tent for three hours. CORY GARCIA
The Size of the Comedy Stage Is TOO DAMN SMALL!
I really hope this tent evolves into its own standalone large stage because goddammit it was hell to see or shoot anything here all weekend. There was a few big names in comedy that I missed because it was impossible to hear or see anything, much less get in to take any photos. MARCO TORRES

The Great Stage Debate
In year's past each stage was actually a pair of stages, and while one act performed another got set up on the free stage. This year it was down to just one stage. This led to what felt like a lot more downtime between acts, especially when 20 minutes just isn't enough time to soundcheck a band like The Polyphonic Spree.
I know that having one bigger stage means more room for production, but the lack of music at times was noticeable, and that was a bummer. CORY GARCIA
I'm no prude, I think pot should be decriminalized. But remember when it became rude to blow your cigarette smoke around in front of nonsmokers? When is that gonna happen with weed? My clothes reek. BRITTANIE SHEY
