The INmusic Festival is known for having the feel of a big festival without the crowds, so as you would imagine the crowds are as excited as they would be at a major festival but have more space to enjoy themselves. The other effect the size of the crowd has on the vibe is how friendly everyone is, it has a real small time festival friendliness to it.
