Early estimates put the attendance at this year’s premier Eastern Maine music event as “healthy,” which could mean that as many as 150,000 people came to the Bangor Waterfront. Was the music as good as in past years, with enough variety? Which performer was your favorite? What about the food? The atmosphere? Is the festival becoming a not-to-be-missed summer tradition, or is it settling into predictability? What would you change, if anything?

As always, the BDN encourages the lively and assertive views of its editorial page readers at ClickBack. Some of the comments may be featured on Friday’s OpEd page.
