Please share tips on how we can make this awesome festival that much more efficient!
Don’t talk to the parking attendants! Sure, you got to the wrong lot, or you want to park near a friend, or have some other moronic question for them, but there is no need to have a conversation of any length with the person waving you into the parking lot. There is an empty parking lot ahead of you and a steady stream of cars behind you, just waiting to get in.Security Lines:
Tailgate the person in front of you into the lot! When they move their car forward, you move your car forward. Don’t extend the accordion. Again, there is an empty lot in front of you. Get yourself into a space.
Don’t have a conversation with the Police Officer (or whoever) at the wristband checkpoint. Pay attention to what’s coming up. If people in front of you are cruising by with their arms out the window, monkey see monkey do and get your arms out the window so you can cruise by as soon as possible. It’s like rubberneckers on a freeway. There is plenty of open-road ahead. Help traffic behind you by moving on as quickly as you can.
Limit the size of your bag / amount of your stuff. More stuff = longer security lines.
Pay attention. Again, watch what’s going on ahead of you and be ready to show off your goods to security. There are tables leading up to help you prepare before you are searched. Also, there are usually lots of people searching you in the same line. Pay attention and you’ll likely see someone ready to search you.
Don’t loiter. No need to have conversations with these friendly people either. What is and what is not allowed is pretty straight forward. Arguing is just wasting the people’s time behind you. And when they are done searching you, GTFO so others behind you can proceed. Don’t lollygag waiting for your friends. There will be plenty of open space just inside.
