With the prospect of a long day ahead, festivals can be tempting times for ticket holders to stay in bed a little bit longer. You're missing the opening acts, but hey, at least you'll have energy for the end of the night, right? Wrong. Showing up early to festivals have led me to some of my favorite sets in memory. Lines are shorter, stages aren't as crowded, and you have the opportunity to catch some of the most promising talent of the day. Artists opening festival stages feel a lot of pressure and tend to deliver far beyond expectations. With Weekend One of Ultra fast approaching, start planning your first sets of the day.
