    Default What are you hearing?

    KEEP YOURSELF UPDATED BITCHES!

    I'm hearing traffic is at a stand still about a 1/2 mile from all the check points and it's going slower than what people were hoping. makes me very nervous for tomorrow when i try to drive in from my hotel.

    these check points sound like they are being tougher than expected and the searches in the camp grounds are rougher this year too.

    i also heard pretty much everyone who bought a 3rd party wristband is getting turned away...

    maybe there wasn't that many scalpers this year, just scammers? not that many people actually selling real wristbands...

    Not surprised to hear that traffic is really bad.
    Really glad that I bought a shuttle pass this year.

    have friends on site right now....said traffic is horrible. slow and meticulous searches kind of like last year are likely responsible...

    ^ exactly...like i said guys, aim for checking in after midnight at the earliest...that is your best bet for a speedy entry. last year i got there around 4am and we waited 1-1.5 hours.

    When you say third-party people are getting turned away, do you mean the fake wristbands we have been seeing, or just people who bought off Craigslist with "legit" wristbands? As in, are the checking to see if the name for the wristband matches up with the person wearing it, or something?

    I bought mine, so it doesn't affect me, just curious.

    thats impossible to turn down legit wristbands from a 3rd party

    he has to be referring to fakes,a few of my friends bought off other friends of mine

    they cant be checking names because if you bought more then one ticket you cant wear both of them.

    Well, of course. But say, if they were all registered as Jim Smith, and Jim Smith wasn't with the party.

    I'm not going to lie, the thought of all scalped wristbands being null and void, while of course extremely unlikely, did fill me with a bit of joy. The crowds would be so small!

    this is true BUT the two friends I sold tickets too would not be happy with me.

    It would be kind of sweet, but I highly doubt they're non-transferrable.

    They would have to note that you can't gift wristbands then if that were the case. You're not going to have a problem if you have a valid wristband.

    So how long do some of you who are already there estimate it'll take to get into the festival and park tomorrow?
    I'm gonna try to get parked and in the gate around 1:30 to watch Black Joe Lewis so I just don't know how early I should try to get there.

    I just asked the same question on a different thread. I'm staying 5 miles away and it looks like I'm leaving at 930 to get there in time. I also have to stop by the camp grounds though so I have a buffer in there to give me some extra time.

    It's always better to be too early than too late.
