When Nick’s girlfriend dumps him at graduation, he has a colossal meltdown in front of the entire university.  He’s convinced that his life is over, but his best friend, Shane, has the perfect solution: three days at an epic music festival.  With the help of “festival aficionado” and certified oddball, Amy, Shane tries to get Nick to embrace the music, the mayhem, and the mud in this uproarious comedy from the creators of “The Inbetweeners.”
