Where is the Prince rush? If anything we should have sold all the camping tickets 6 days before the festival. Ugh...explain.

"If anything we should have sold "
Are you a camping ticket sales agent or something?

i'm a realist. there are more tickets for the show than there are camping tickets..so one could assume that camping should have sold out last week, leading up to the show being sold out the day of the event. camping = 10-20,000 tickets...the show 60,000 tickets.

Oh...
I guess some people are into assuming more than others.
Lets assume that there could be 1-6 persons per tent?
No.....lets not....

maybe there's a bigger camp area this year too.
not just bigger spaces.

I can't imagine that most of the people who would come just for Prince would camp until all other options are gone.

Is there any place to expand that much, realistically? I guess, since they have all the RV space for Stagecoach.

I did the math the other day. Assuming it's true there are normally 16,000 spaces (that figure is from a newspaper, I think), increasing to 8x8 squares means either 5.5 more Acres, or 3750 fewer spots.

Increasing the size AND adding more spots would require a LOT more space.

well, they said they expanded the polo fields this year. perhaps that includes campgrounds.

My thoughts exactly

5.5 acres is a lot. Like several football fields.

I don't think people appreciate this 8x8 thing, because they don't look at the big picture. Either there will be much fewer campers, or we're looking at a very different setup than we've had in the past.

Whatever, I've got no complaints about the camping not selling out. More room for meeeeeeeeeeee! By more room I mean less people trying to use increased facilities=a good thing.

What? Do you work for goldenvoice? I'm pleased to know there are still camping and festival tickets available; that means less people and more room for the rest of us.

There will still be a shit-ton of people there anyway, no worries.
