Warped Tour, Mayhem, and the million that Alyson attends in LA all have their quirks and glitches but you live and you learn and apparently in Brooklyn they learned allot this year. Googa Mooga was by far one of the most tweeted and facebooked fests in memory, and not for the great tunes our atmosphere. I don't think they anticipated such a turn out because food and drink ran out and the lines for public faculties got long and what do we do when we're pissed? We tweet!

Seventeen editor Kim Tranell tweeted, “Googa Mooga – The Hunger Games. I’d stab someone for something edible right now.”
Eatocracy’s Kat Kinsman tweeted, “Googacame, Googasaw, Googalines & Googabailed.” Another attendee tweeted, “Highlight of [GoogaMooga] was the girl puking at the entrance. That and leaving.”
Ottavia Bourdain – wife of Anthony – was vocal about the bathroom lines: “I peed in a cup.”
Finally, Gothamist reported “$250 VIP GoogaMooga Tickets: You Would’ve Gotten More Full Eating The Money.”
Here is the official statemtent
“A huge thank you to everyone who helped make the inaugural Great GoogaMooga so special: all of the food & drink vendors, our excellent staff & volunteers, the amazing musicians & chefs, the park & Mother Nature for the unparalleled weather and most importantly, all of you fans!
“And to those who had a frustrating experience on Saturday – we are sorry. We truly regret the first year glitches and really appreciate your patience as we worked to smooth them out. As with all our festivals, creating and providing an enjoyable experience for everyone is the driving force behind all that we do, and a responsibility we take very seriously.”
Oh well, at least they got some press.
