The first concert had a smaller than usual crowd, with parking available close by, even after the concert started, unlike previous years.

The amphitheater appeared to be about half full at the beginning, and less than that after the halftime break, when many chose to leave.

As usual, while the crowd was glad that the developer decided (one week after the Montebello Hills Oilfield Fire) to fund most of the cost of the concerts and most took the free chachkeys they were giving out, 95% stated to the Save the Montebello Hills Chairperson and Vice Chairperson (who were there) that they didn't want any condos in the Hills, but a Park (for the People).

One new theme was a "$1.00 Donation" banner at the entrance, with volunteers taking the dollars and giving raffle tickets out to the people entering.

It turns out the city gets none of the donations. It was there for the band only. Many people were confused by the sign, and thought it was an entry fee. I saw two large families turn around when they were about to enter, and it was only when I told them that the donation was voluntary, and not an entry fee, that they then entered.
