I went to the 'fest for the first time in '06, and didn't go in '07. But when I came back in 2008, the Sahara dance tent seemed smaller.
The reason why, that damn tent in 2006 seemed so endless. The thing was huge to me. I thought I could've made the argument that year that Madonna and Oakenfold didn't even quite fill it, only Daft did. If you're questioning my festival sobriety at this point, I swear I attend booze and drug free (buecause I can be just as delusional sober lol).
But when attending this year, the tent didn't seems quite as big, and a lot of DJs and acts filled it (which is cool... a full jumpin' tent seems cool to me), but do I just have a distoreted memory, or does it seems smaller to you guys too?
