AP080709034732.jpgThe inaugural Pemberton Music Festival, which went down last weekend and featured headlining sets by Coldplay, Tom Petty, and Jay-Z, was not without its problems: dust clouds that caused much respiratory distress on days one and two; the threat of rain on day three; members of N.E.R.D. reportedly getting stuck in traffic long enough to delay their sets; and bathrooms that one reporter described as “grim beyond description,” which kind of makes the “well, at least they had poutine at the food stands” argument a little less appealing.

    @Audif Jackson Winters III: That was teh moment the whole group ran out into traffic, where they lifted Pharrel’s car over the traffic, onto the festival grounds and onto the Monster Energy Drink (or something) stage.
