1. The Best Way to Start Your Day Award goes to:
whoever scheduled musical icons Medeski, Martin and Wood at 12:30. The Jazz trio is celebrating twenty years of making historic music together and yet some yo-yo had them play first. This however turned out to be the perfect way to launch your day at the beach. These masters of all things funk played an acid jazzed up set that will never be forgotten.

2. The Best Way Not To Lose Your Friends Award goes to: This guy. I am assuming that's why he carried the duck, but this was never confirmed.

3. The Biggest Disappointment Turned Into Magic Award goes to:
Cee Lo Green for being late or it was the stunt of the festival. At 3:30 a man comes on the mic and explains Cee Lo was not there, so we would get the Foo Fighters instead. They charge on stage and rip into Alice Cooper's “Schools Out”. This classic was followed up by “Love and Rockets” and “Tom Petty” covers respectively. The fishy part of the shenanigans leads to my next award.

4. The Best Collaboration Award goes to:
Cee Lo Green and The Foo Fighters for their version of Prince's “Nikki” …..Back to the shenanigans, before the song started David Grohl claimed if Cee Lo was there he would love to sing this and poof he was. The legendary song never got this kind of treatment and it was perfect. Cee Lo went on to play a few songs after with his band joining him. Late?

5. The Best Bass Bombs Of The Day Goes to:
Les Claypool from Primus. I hope you know what I speak of.

6. Cover of the Day Award goes to:
The Foo Fighters for their version of “Breakdown”.

7. The Best Set of The Day Award goes to:
Medeski, Martin and Wood. The first band on the main stage took most to that special place and cool lights did not change that.

8. Rock Star Of The Day Award goes to:
David Grohl, because he is JUST that!
