    Lightbulb Be The Change You Want To See In Your Festival

    Greetings thousands of the worlds most passionate festival goers. Posting as a new person to this forum is really intimidating. Go easy on me.

    My name is Tucker Gumber. Coachella 2011 changed my life forever and is the reason I am The Festival Guy. It was because of Coachella that I knew festivals were something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Since then I've been to 28 festivals and I started a website, www.TheFestivalGuy.com, to document my adventure.

    You can see the list of festivals I have attended here.
    http://thefestivalguy.com/2013-festi...vals-attended/
    http://thefestivalguy.com/2013-festi...vals-attended/

    To make a long story short. I found something that I loved and did everything in my power to make it my life. This included being homeless so I could go to festivals instead of paying rent somewhere. I'm basically a professional festival volunteer.

    Now I am ready to take everything that I have learned and try and find ways to enhance the festival experience for everyone. The idea is pretty simple. There are things that we the festival crowd could do to make this year of festivals different and more fun than any other. Imagine if there were no more bottles littered everywhere after a show ended. Or if everyone would light up the front of their car in the campground. It would turn the big parking lot into a glowing art walk. If we worked together we could make this happen very easily.

    So I come to you today to ask you for help. I have a video coming out on Wednesday at 3:30pm that explains my story and the simple concept of what festivals could be like if We The Festival tried just a little bit. If you think any of this is a good idea it would mean the world to me for you to share that video. Social media let's us decide what the real news is. If hundreds of us posted the same video at the same time, the world would notice. Sharing the video is the first step we can take to making 2013 the year that festivals went from really fun weekend, to a festival utopia created by you and me.

    I'll post the video on Wednesday at 3pm PST.


    See you in paradise,

    Tucker Gumber

    You are not making the world a better place. This stupid video project will not make the world, or festivals, better. You are, by all accounts, a piece of shit.

    Now now, he has festival fanny packs for sale on his website, he's totally legit.



    Dayam ladies, you will look "fly" for only $70 and you can have speakers instead of a front pocket, because everyone needs set of personal speakers at festivals to have themselves heard.

    I have a great idea, how about you enhance the festival experience for all of us by never showing your face at a music festival ever again, you fucking asshole.

    I was pretty sure since that didn't stop the pedophiles, everyone posted pictures of themselves as children afterwards, I believe that stopped molestation entirely?

    Jesus Christ you are the most pathetic person on this board. You must be so fucking insecure with yourself that the only way you can feel any kind of self worth is to spend you entire life belittling people on an internet message board. I know people are stupid but pointing out every stupid little thing people say gets really fucking old and just makes you look sad. Why don't you go compete in the special olympics while you're at it...the competition level is about the same as the people you like to pick on around here.
    Let's go on a livin' spree!

    I LEARNED TO BE A CREECH***, AND WITH MY ASSISTANCE YOU CAN BE ONE TOO!

    ***Definition of "Creech"
    Creech - "Kree-Ch"
    creech (noun) combination between creep and mooch. The creech is the person who always invites themself to whatever you are doing. The guy who always ends up showing up even though no one invites him. baggage or dead weight This is also the same guy who comes over uninvited and eats all of your food or orders food for everyone at a restaurant and then shorts on the bill.

    works as an adjective too.
    How does that creech Jason always seem to show up when we get together? Who invited him?

    or

    Look at Matt following those girls like a creechy stray dog. They won't even look him in the eye. He's got a snowball's chance in hell.
