Always great seeing DMB. Dave had great energy all night. But it was a lack luster set. I gave it two stars because I've seen this band play such a better set so many times. Still awesome times though!

Great experience at ACL festival. short set, but due to curfew. Loved the Two Step closer. First of many trips for me back to the ACL Music Festival.

Well...it's great to see the band of course...the highlight for me was I saw Carter on the side of the stage while the Levon Helm band was playing...waved...and he waved right back! Was pretty cool.

Other than that...it was cool to be close instead of on the lawn for a change...but was really bummed with such a short show and no encore. 10PM curfew ftl...the crowd was not that into it either too.

The band was together though...not their fault at all...just the fact it was a festival I guess...

It was my fiance's first show too...she was a trooper and hung around through the rain with me :)

Wish I could drop a Zero star bomb on this show. In all seriousness, we love DMB, but these recent sets, no encore, and fans totally not being into the music killed this show and you could tell the band wasn't feeling ACL. Highlight: dave was dancing during the first few songs more than usual, which was cool.

Stayed at the Livestrong stage all day and got soaked. Totally worth it!

Dave danced a lot more at this show than any other show I've been to. For everyone complaining about the crowd not being into it, I'm not sure what they're referencing. Of course, I was at the front and everyone around me and as far as I could see were dancing and hopping along with the songs. More likely that the further away from the stage you got, the more relaxed everyone was. So Damn Lucky's new outro was interesting. During the stop and go Anyone Seen the Bridge, Dave played one note after the lights had gone out and raised his hand as if to say "my bad." Then the next pause, he nailed and it and then wiped his forehead comically, like "whew!" Then during the intro to Ants, Jeff played when he wasn't supposed to and Dave looked over at him laughing, then Jeff raised his hand to indicate that "was his bad." All in all, the band seemed to be loose and also happy that this was the last show for a few weeks.

I uploaded a setlist that Dave and Tim signed, also a working crew pass.

Front, center rail. Got there before gates opened to festival and waited at the main stage (Livestrong stage) until DMB came on at 8pm. Good acts throughout the day though: Mutemath, Citizen Cope, Levon Helm band. DMB competed with Ghostland Observatory on the final time slot of Saturday night. There was no encore due to it being a festival show.

Great Two Step. Other than that, fairly standard 2009 show.

Dave had a lot of energy the whole show. Tons of dancing around and weird/crazy faces from him. Thought the show was really good. I was happy to hear a good amount of the new songs. No surprises in the set list but that is expected at a festival.

less than 2 hour show was not enough. Just as they seemed to get going it was over.

4 stars keeping in mind the inevitabe short set as well as relating to the rest of the bands at ACL. DMB did a wonderful job with the time they had. The set list was as expected given the typical festival crowd. Highlights were an amazing Two Step, YMDT and Seven...what an amazing song. I personally heard numerous casual DMB fans say they were blown away by this show and wanted more.
