Please share tips on how we can make this awesome festival that much more efficient!

Parking:


Don’t talk to the parking attendants! Sure, you got to the wrong lot, or you want to park near a friend, or have some other moronic question for them, but there is no need to have a conversation of any length with the person waving you into the parking lot. There is an empty parking lot ahead of you and a steady stream of cars behind you, just waiting to get in.

Tailgate the person in front of you into the lot! When they move their car forward, you move your car forward. Don’t extend the accordion. Again, there is an empty lot in front of you. Get yourself into a space.

Don’t have a conversation with the Police Officer (or whoever) at the wristband checkpoint. Pay attention to what’s coming up. If people in front of you are cruising by with their arms out the window, monkey see monkey do and get your arms out the window so you can cruise by as soon as possible. It’s like rubberneckers on a freeway. There is plenty of open-road ahead. Help traffic behind you by moving on as quickly as you can.
Security Lines:


Limit the size of your bag / amount of your stuff. More stuff = longer security lines.

Pay attention. Again, watch what’s going on ahead of you and be ready to show off your goods to security. There are tables leading up to help you prepare before you are searched. Also, there are usually lots of people searching you in the same line. Pay attention and you’ll likely see someone ready to search you.

Don’t loiter. No need to have conversations with these friendly people either. What is and what is not allowed is pretty straight forward. Arguing is just wasting the people’s time behind you. And when they are done searching you, GTFO so others behind you can proceed. Don’t lollygag waiting for your friends. There will be plenty of open space just inside.

parking/leaving the parking lot

hang out in campgrounds before you leave - want to avoid the wait driving out of the parking lot? well hang around the campgrounds. either find your camping friends and sit back and talk for a little bit, or wander around and check out what is going on. there's generally plenty of friendly people willing to chat. sometimes you can even get a bottle of water or roller skate or whatever the campgrounds are doing this year. check it out, and save yourself a long wait in the car!

don't make a tow truck come get you - preferably thursday before the festival even starts, you should make sure you have a full tank of gas. sitting in traffic at the festival can eat up your gas. you DEFINITELY don't want to run out and have to wait for someone to bring you gas. also, be sure you have checked the pressure of your tires and that they have air. don't leave things running so that your battery dies. and for god's sake, park in a designated area. you don't want to be stuck in soft dirt or a ditch at the end of the night.

because failure to do any of these things may mean you have to wait hours to get your car towed. and once the tow truck gets there, it means they will be blocking the exit and prevent all your fellow festival goers from leaving.

General Concert Etiquette:

Don't be a fucking douchebag.

Look, there are a lot of people. These are popular bands at a popular festival, and you likely came with some friends. Want to avoid getting separated at sets you are catching together? Plan. Have a meeting spot. Text each other, because calls do not work, as if you can hear anything over the noise bleed anyway.

Do you only plan on watching part of a particular set because you have another to get to? Hang near the back and avoid having to make a hand holding chain with your friends that I am going to break because you are being a douchebag. Keep an eye out for pre-existing traffic lanes leaving sets, don't barrel your way out of there like you are trying to escape a tsunami.

Backpacks:

Oh for the love of fuck. Look I know you want to have your chapstick and your jacket and a place to hold a couple water bottles and whatever else you feel is necessary for this thing but seriously. Seriously. You don't need to cram your backpack that you used to climb K2 full of unnecessary shit. One, YOU have to carry all that crap around all day in the desert heat, and two, it makes you a fucking douchebag. When you wear it leaving a set, you hit everyone you pass with that fucking thing, and if I am included, I swear to fuck I will punch your girlfriend in the face. When you leave a set with your North Face nonsense, hold it at your side as you pass people. Say excuse me. Smile. Say thank you.

OMG This is like totally my favorite band and I am showing up 15 minutes late to the set but I absolutely NEED to be in the front OMG:

You know what? No. Fuck you. Fuck. You. We all showed up on time to watch this, and you are dragging 5 of your vapid whore friends through all of us giggling with your fucking feathers in your hair as if dressing like a Native American was in some way shape or form a fashion statement that any of us can get behind. Want to be in the front? Get there early. How early? Halfway through the set before. "BUT OMG I WANT TO SEE THE OTHER SHITTY BAND I LIKE AT THAT EXACT SAME TIMMMMMMMME." Life's tough. Sacrifices have to be made. Perhaps if you had spent more time planning your sets out and less time playing slutty Indian this wouldn't be so difficult for you.

I'm bringing in my backpack, so everyone will just have to deal with it. I carry it low and to the side when I'm in a crowd. I don't want to be bothered with walking to a locker every time I need to change camera batteries, take a couple of Aleve, or grab a Nutri-Grain bar. And my backpack is great, it doesn't even feel like I'm wearing anything so it's no trouble at all.

Also, I don't give a shit if I'm holding up the security line because of it. You all will just have to wait.

you forgot to mention one other fact. for the most part the only thing they know to do is wave the flag and park your car. they do not know the layout of the parking lots, where the entrance is, etc.

WALK, ASSHOLES. THERE MUST BE BANDS YOU WANT TO GO SEE. EVEN IF THERE AREN'T, GO SOMEWHERE OUT OF THE FLOW OF TRAFFIC AND SIT YOUR ASS DOWN.
