On September 3-4, 2011, the Playground Festival kicked off at Hidden Valley in Irvine. Tucked between the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre and Wild Rivers, the "OC's Coachella" offered a "never-before-seen lineup," but ultimately disappointed many concert-goers. With few attendees and lots of bands backing out (including headliner the Game) the weekend ended its unsuccessful concert with bands including Panic! at the Disco, the Bravery, Big Sean, Shiny Toy Guns and more.
