I was just wondering if you queue for a band before getting entrance into the stage area or if it is that you can stay after shows, I mean like that for example if Gorillaz and Thom Yorke plays on the same stage after each other and you want to see them both

theres no lines for the stages, everything is very spread out and open, and its pretty easy to make your way from one stage to another. when it gets really crowded in the later evening you do have to kinda push your way through the hoards of people, but no, no queue.

Yeah like Madonna in the Sahara tent. You can just walk right in & out at your leisure. I'm taking my jet pack this year so I can just fly from stage to stage that way I don't have to bother anybody to get by them.

keep in mind though, as the night progresses it gets harder to get in and out of the tents, and even pretty hard to navigate your way around the main stage area. So if you want to be up close for a specific artist, make sure you get there at least 45 minutes before their set.

(but really, who wants to get super close? You have more room to dance in the back. but what do I know, im just a sahara dome and do lab dweller :P)

Be warned: the later it is and the closer you try to get to the main stage, the more likely there will be a guy or girl peeing right next to you because they are dipshits and don't want to move for fear of losing their "space".

Lineups for the stages? Like Space Mountain? Oh man, I want to ride The Charlotte Gainsbourg.

So basically you can stay at one stage for the whole day, not that you would do it :P but haha. 45 minutes isn't much at all, that nice:O In europe at Roskilde it was sometimes hours

You sure could stand in the crazy hot sun all day with no shade but you might end up looking like this:

The stages are supported by metal beams, and they stand above the ground level. They use a series of interlocking bars to hold the platform up and maintain a level area for the band to place all their gear on. They have lighting rigs hooked to the top that will provide light shows later in the day. Two stages have screens: the others do not. This is how stages work.

i thought the stages worked by electricity



you describe the physicality of the stages, without ever mentioning their intent..

The PA works through electricity. A stage doesn't need electricity to work or exist. Otherwise, all those Greek theaters in Greece would have been fucked. The stage works because of the physicality, and the intent is to provide a place for a band to play.

You can see the wireless mic on the guy on the right. It must be hidden better for the other two. You need to learn your Greek history better, Bryan.

I think you're mistaking his laser eyes for a wireless mic. It's a commonly known fact that 1 in 10 Grecians had laser eyes. I'll forgive you your error this time, John.

That picture shows three Greeks, so it was 1 in 3 Greeks that had laser eyes. I'll forgive you for your counting error this time, Bryan.

It's an oft-told tale that 7 out of 10 Greeks were masters at blending into their surroundings. I'll overlook your lack of keen attention to detail this once, John.

And if you insist on being a twat who steps on my or my girlfriend's foot in a desperate attempt to get to the front of the tent 5 minutes before the next act goes on, you will be introduced to my elbow in your face.

Otherwise, get there early and have a good time.

I'm of this philosophy too as I get older, but my short companions don't always agree...

planning ahead of time to elbow someone in the face is lame.

Nor should they move.
