Instajournal: Voodoo Experience — what worked, what didn’t

Since it’s a Voodoo Experience, not a fest, it only makes sense that the Experience is not without its mix of successes (for instance, the structural aesthetics) and glitches (for instance, two rather portly bull dogs managing to sneak past security — in matching glow leashes. Yes, those exist). The hits; the misses — I guess it’s all a port of the Experience.
