Last year my boyfriend and I got to the field around... hmm, let's say 10PM-ish? And by the time we got situated into our campspot, it was somewhere between 1 and 2AM. The lines were FREAKING LOOOOOOONG, we were moving INCH BY INCH every 5 minutes, and my boyfriend drives a manual. Yeah, it was not a very pleasant way to start an amazing weekend.
Needless to say, we want to get out there earlier this year in hopes of avoiding a really long wait to get in to the grounds. What time is the best time? Or is the entire day just one big horrid traffic mess? I have friends who say they are planning to get there in the morning..? Is that really necessary, since the campgrounds don't open till noon anyway?
We want to get there so that the lines aren't ridiculously long. But we are also hopeful of getting a campspot that is closer in distance to the festival entrance.. Please advise! thanks :)
