Best: The rain cleared up on Day 1 just after noon. Quite a marked improvement from last year. All hail the weather gods.

Worst: The three people I saw throw up. Even worse: Knowing that those are the only three I actually saw—there had to have been many more than that.

Best: Icona Pop's matching plastic dresses. We want one.

Worst: Portopotties. That is all.

Best: The peace and love during Lana Del Rey's set, you guys. Free hugs for days. 

Worst: Not being able to see literally anything at Chance the Rapper. Stop being so popular, bro.

Best: The weather on Day 2 and 3. 78 and sunny all day long! Lolla forever!

Worst: The fact that I probably can't afford Jessie Ware's bangin' gold hoops

Best: Matt & Kim and whatever kind of supplements they're on.

Worst: Not being the fourth HAIM sister. I saw them live for the first time, and I can't stop thinking about it!

Best: Charles Bradley's electric blue jacket. Deserves its own set, to be honest.

Worst: Those people who stand directly in front of you while you're sitting on the grass with the perfect view of the stage. Am I right or what?

Best: Lianne La Havas and her whole beautiful-English-soul/folk-singer thing. Please keep it up. 

Worst: Death Grips' no-show. Also bad: Fans trashing their equipment. 

Best and/or Worst: All the girls twerking to Major Lazer's "Bubble Butt." Yay/Noooooo!

Best: The Cure. Plain and simple.

Worst: Lollapalooza's over.
