The Black Keys were not the only thing to headline day one at Bunbury Music Festival. Long lines at the entrance, bathrooms and concession stands were among the issues festivalgoers had.

Bunbury added additional entrances at Butler as well as the Public Landing by Yeatman's Cove after music fans said they waited at least an hour to get into the festival Friday.  

They posted on their Facebook page that in the past, attendance had been around 8,000 people per day and normally they filtered throughout the day. According to the festival, all 20,000 people arrived at once. 

To cut down on long lines for patrons getting water.  Guest may bring with them a factory sealed bottle of water up to one liter or less.

Festival officials said that the ATMs are now hard-wired and under the Purple People Bridge.  On Friday, there were reports that the ATMs did not work because they were connected to Wi-Fi.

The Avett Brothers, Kasey Musgraves, Old Crow Medicine Show and the Decemberists are among the names headlining Saturday.
