As Atmosphere could be heard wrapping up their set just after 8 PM at day one of Fun Fun Fun Fest, a man wearing an Atmosphere shirt standing several hundred people deep on the line outside complained to the festival’s staff about having waited for over three hours to get in. It was just one complaint of many during yesterday’s admission clusterfuck.

The operative word there was “stood,” as the line didn’t seem to move much all day, enraging many who traveled from all over to attend the fest, which is in its ninth year. Many killed time by voicing their displeasure on Twitter:
