    When you say camelback you mean the bladder, right? I can take in the camelback backpack part, right?

    Yes, I'm assuming they mean the bladder part unless they really mean the company, Camelbak, then they're boycotting the company. But usually, without the bladder, it's just a backpack.

    If you're going to bring a regular size backpack/book bag filled with shit:

    -Show up early to a stage and take off your backpack and put it between your feet
    -Don't fucking plow through an already formed crowd with your bag on your back knocking over people behind you
    -Carry it in your hand in front of you if going through a crowd
    -Sit/Stand in the outskirts of the crowd
    -Don't fucking dance like a maniac with your backpack on in the middle of the crowd
    -Leave your bag in a locker or car

    ***You're really not going to need everything in your bag. Just enjoy the music and art.***

    It would also be pretty easy to fill them up with alcohol and walk around the fest, which is a big no no

    No easier than filling up an empty water bottle and putting that into your back pack. Dumb.

    As someone who has no intention of doing either of these things, I find this rule and, dare I say, vessel discrimination, absurd!

    I'm going to bring mine anyway, and keep it folded with the long sleeve shirt I plan on bringing. In 2008 I brought it all 3 days with no issue. If they say no I will try a different line, and if that fails, at least replacement bladders are only $25 and I've had mine for a solid 10 years with plenty of use.

    I carried around my backpack the whole time and I didn't really have any problems. It was a drawstring bag with my GoPro, ziplock bag full of goodies (cards, sunscreen, antibacterial cleaner, wet ones, tissues, chapstick, etc.), flask, weed, etc. I absolutely loved having a locker because you're allowed to keep things over night. I stashed all my weed and alcohol in it so I didn't have to worry about security hassling me every time I entered. The walk to the locker isn't that big of a deal as long as you plan ahead and do it in between sets. Plus it lets you store a (much needed) sweater for when it gets chilly at night.

    I'd get it ASAP cuz they sold out pretty quick for the first weekend. Once we logged onto paypal (in approximately 2 minutes), all the large lockers were gone and had to go to a medium sized one (which was decent sized).

    Though in all fairness, I think within that 2 minutes, there were about 20 large lockers remaining. But better safe than sorry right!?
