Reposted here because my other thread was too sad and No Elephants wanted to hear about something vaguely cheerful.

They had a big concert/rave two nights in a row with 4,000-6,000 people in the main hall. The first night, the bands encouraged all the audience members to start pogo-ing up and down while shouting "Fun! Fun! Fun!" for about 40 minutes straight. It was a very diverse crowd. The music was very deep. They said their goal was to make the building shake.

Second night they told everypony to cut that out because we were in danger of making the building collapse, since the whole building was shaking and it set off car alarms a mile away. It did feel kind of like a mini-Woodstock. The convention staff were literally afraid the ceiling would collapse.

They had a range of acts from heavy rap to electronic to folk to indie rock, all of whom were bronies (there's sort of a subgenre of music at least in the electronic scene.) The rap artists were very good which astonished me. I wasn't surprised that the electronic music was mostly good. The best stuff was the singers that mixed in stuff like actual songs by people who are professionally involved in the fandom, since the official composer is really talented. If this were the 90's he'd probably be writing musicals. Rolling Stone wrote an article about the music...

AND NOW FOR SOMETHING COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. (this is what people think bronies are like. the concert looked nothing like this, but it makes me lol)

The music and projection was a lot more like this but much more cheerful and without the dark imagery.

(for some reason, it seems to be a joke to cast Fluttershy as a heavy metal singer, like in this classic rock song.)
