I liked the mound. Was not really that much farther away from stage than bleachers in previous years and you could lie down and stretch out on a blanket while having a nice view of the stage. One change I would ask for is that the little tent/bar on top of the mound be air conditioned. It would be sweet to be able to hang out within view of the main stage in air conditioned comfort.

I liked the mound. I would rather sit on the soft ground than those bleachers. We took our anywhere chairs and when we were tired of sitting we laid on the ground and leaned on the bales of hay. The view of the stage wasn't bad either.
It would be nice to have a few porta potties a bit closer to the mound.
for a second, i thought you meant peeing against the hay bale.
every time i ventured to the mound (had a great time watching plant and krouse) i always noticed this heavyset couple sitting on the haybales. i kept thinking - they must be absolutely dying in this heat / sun.
Personally I really liked the mound...it was rarely crowded...and the hay bales made for awesome back rests! ;D I only tried actually sitting ON them once and ICK! Notsomuch! VERY scratchy even with a blanket over them and lots of bugs/ants/chiggers SOMETHING in the hay that kept eating at my legs and making me itch and scratch and just major uncomfortable! But throwing down a blanket in FRONT of them and leaning up against them was awesome! Tons o room and a great view.....I really like it!
Chances are, unless you intend on spending the whole day at What stage slowly moving forward to get up front or unless you are one of those d-bags/c#%ts who run and elbow their way past everyone, then you are going to be that far back anyways.
Phish, Stevie Wonder, Jay Z, have all been quite enjoyable even from a quarter of a mile out
