Thanks for the site info. It's really good to hear a clip of their music because it helps you decide ahead of time which stage to go to.

I went to the festival Friday and took a few pictures. The headline performer was Hank Williams Jr. The estimated crowd for the day was a whopping 100,000...one of the largest in Riverbend Festival history. I decided to stay at the smaller venues which were not so crowded, but the entertainment was awesome. Here's some shots:

Some of the huge crowd

An amazing local band Infradig. They play a mix of jazz, with elements of hip hop, jungle, etc. Very cool and very danceable

I watched Al Di Meola during the time Hank Jr was playing. A wildly enthusiastic crowd of maybe 3,000 watched this Jazz great. Al Di Meola simply put is the best guitarist I've ever seen, and I've seen some great ones. I would rate him on par with Stevie Ray Vaughn...he's that damn good!

Thats an awesome shot with the water cannons in the front and the boats in the water in the background. I love how Riverbend provides a jumbo screen with live shots of the Coca-Cola Stage for the boaters.

There were hundreds of boats with thousands enjoying the concert and fireworks show from the water! Awesome indeed.

Riverbend is great. They try to cater to everyone with the headline acts every night. This year was no different. There were some southern classics from Hank Jr, and The Allman Brothers
