    I hope the tents, parking lots, and parking attendants have also expanded by 25%.
    I like it. It's not my favorite shit in the world, but it's a smart, funny show.

    P.S. I'm gay

    Good luck to anyone wanting to see Grizzly Bear. With this many people, and them playing the Mojave, you won't even be able to get close to that tent.

    It had to occur to them that the bigger crowd would require more space. These people are not amateurs. I'm going to go on with my life, beginning with this post, trusting that there's an upside. Must be.

    Not a single person will be able to get close for this show. That's exactly how it works.

    Think before you flame.

    No shit, I have 2 of the tickets. Once car camping fills up they are sending the rest to tent camping. There are only 8,000 car camping spots. That's not a lot. I'm sure you've seen the parking lot in previous years with that many cars Thursday afternoon.

    Take it to the camping threads, jerktowns. This thread is for discussion of the impending riots at the Mojave and Gobi.
    I like it. It's not my favorite shit in the world, but it's a smart, funny show.

    You can count on the ins/outs affecting the crowd sizes, as there will always be a few thousand at the campsite versus before once you were in you were there for the day.

    But some shows will definitely be super tough to see, Grizzly Bear likely being one of them. Luckily Sunday will be less crowded than Saturday as I'm sure lots of people will have to leave by then.

    Although, it's not like they could make the roads wider. Traffic is still going to be a bitch.

    I'm looking forward to losing an eye from an overzealous beaked mask wearer during Fever Ray.

    .
    It is a bitch to walk around with all those parked bodies. Walking by the tents is fine because the vast majority camp out in front of the Mane Stage the whole time. And there is no Outdoor (space is used for BBQ competition.) Way harder to walk around half of Stagecoach because it isn't flowing.

    Fever Ray in the Mojave makes me bummed ... I mean, I guess there's no other logical tent for her to be at, but if the boards (and the "critics" a la SPIN crowning her the No. 1 must-see) are any indication, at least half (or a significant portion) of those 75K people will be trying to cram into Mojave to catch her set.
