    They have an official vending area at the entrance. you would have purchase a table for that.

    i am pretty sure you would get escorted away if you milling around the parking lot with a bunch of wares to sell.

    EDIT: now I remember that there are in fact a number of people who do walk around selling hats and sunglasses during the walk from the lots to the main entrance. I have no idea if they get stopped a lot of what. I sincerely doubt that it is actually encouraged or officially allowed by Goldenvoice or the venue though.

    You could always talk to a local homeowner and set up shop on an adjoining front yard. I saw a few folks selling water and stuff that way last year. And bonus, totally legal.

    Not exactly legal. You are more than likely not going to get hassled by cops, especially if you have permission from a homeowner, but in the state of CA you have ato have a valid seller's permit to legally sell goods...basically because they want to report and pay taxes on everything sold

    In know here in Colorado they even want you to report income from a yard sale. That doesn't bother me though because I hate yard sales. cr*****

    I did see a seller get busted at the Mile high Musical festival, but it was inside the venue. They jumped that dude and took him away.

    I've seen guys selling t shirts every year I've gone and they all have that same looking over the shoulder motion going on so it must not be legal.
    You know, but that's valid because if we are all gonna die anyway shouldn't we be enjoying ourselves now? You know, I'd like to quit thinking of the present, like right now, as some minor insignificant preamble to something else.

    I think it should be legal, Shakedown Street, but that brings on a bunch of other things. cr*****

    not to mention the misspellings. I made that mistake in '97 and bought a bootleg shirt at a festival in DC only to notice that "Jimmy's Chicken Snack" was listed.

    it just depends on how they're screened. i've had some bootleg shirts for 10 years and they still look great. Others faded almost completely after a month

    So, "that mistake" in this case was attending a festival where Jimmy's Chicken Shack was playing?

    Hahaha!

    Hey now, should we give them the benefit of a doubt? Maybe they went to the festival for free... you know, radio promotion or a friend's dying wish or something.

    The Prodigy, Beck, Blondie, Jamiroquai, Echo & the Bunnymen, The Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Local H, Luscious Jackson, The Verve Pipe, Kula Shaker, The Cardigans, Squirrel Nut Zippers, Ben Folds Five, Third Eye Blind, Reel Big Fish, K's Choice, Soul Coughing, Jimmie's Chicken Shack.

    The parking lot is strictly for drawing dusty cocks on windows.
