    Another Treasure Island Music Festival is in the books and some 20,000 revelers are beginning to pick up the pieces, but the magic lives on in social media and on the Internet. 

    Seen.co culled fan photos and videos posted to Twitter and Instagram from each act throughout the two-day, grouping them in sets labeled by artist name and common phrases found — phrases like, "last night, f*cking amazing."

    Similarly, Finebox.co has collected up all the properly hashtagged videos on Vine. Included here are this own writer's experiments with the best hooks from Outkast's set.

    If you're looking for the best style shots from the radioactive island, they're at Refinery 29 and The Bold Italic. (Spoiler: Floral prints killed this year — on men.)

    But it's Craigslist's "Missed Connections" section that will likely be a source of comedy gold over the next few days as people remember the strangers they don't want to forget. Bookmark that ish.

    "Thanks for helping keep my hands warm while we were sitting up on the bus," says one. "I really enjoyed watching the last few acts with you. I wish I could have stayed longer."

    "You were wearing a Motown on Mondays shirt and laughed across the barrier at us while we were practicing our Beyonce dance moves in a fatigued delirious state," reads another. "Just wondering, are you a DJ there?"
