Now that it's happening, what is your regret level for not being there?
Not at all: I'm wiped out / Saw everything I wanted / Had a bad experience last week
A little bit: I had a great time last week, once was probably good enough for me, but part of me still wishes I were there
More than a little bit: If you gave me a free pass, I'd be there
A lot: Why the hell didn't I do two weekends?
I just bought a pass from a sketchy dude on the internet and I'm on 1-10 now
There's really no way that I could swing both weekends and still have the time and monies off from work to do the other festivals that I plan on attending this year. Having said that I am really jealous that I am not there this weekend :/
I've had the flu the last four days, so I don't want to be back.
It was my favorite year by far though
Philip Glass Ensemble - Philip Glass - Tycho - William Tyler - Nickel Creek - Jandek - Liars - The Mountain Goats - Arcade Fire - Swans
If I had the money and could take enough time off from work I'd do it twice for sure.
If I went 2 weekends, I would definitely use the opportunity to see the art more. That'd be my main motivation. Other than that, one weekend is fine.
i got sick as fuck this morning, but if i'd answered this question for CA yesterday, i'd probably have a ticket and be poolside by now.
If I lived within a reasonable driving distance, I would have bought a pass after work today and drove immediately to the festival grounds. I would have figured out where the hell I was staying on the way.
Being so close would be torturous.
I'd probably get arrested.
i wish i couldve gone just for friday so i could see grinderman.
My regrets/conflicts from last weekend:
1) Not seeing Grinderman
2) Not seeing the xx/Phoenix back-to-back in their moment getting called up on the big stage
Not really too bad. I still got my Nick Cave set in, and I've seen/will see the xx and Phoenix again.
I have a Grinder and HTDA regret. It's itchy.
Got sick after. Saw pretty much everything I could. Maybe redo Saturday again. I dunno though.
I believe I've worn a path through the grass, from our back door to the wall that runs along Monroe Street. Up against the wall, sits my stepladder and a pair of binoculars for about the only viewing pleasure I'll be getting of the 2nd weekend...Soundwise, it's a mish-mash of traffic noise and an occasional bass drop during the day, but the later it gets, the louder and clearer it seems to sound. I imagine as the night moves on, my ass will be planted on the wall just soaking up whatever I can until next year...
I purchased an artist pass off of craigslist for 200 bucks on saturday, best decision of my life!!
I bought a pass for $150 on craigslist, left Santa Barbara at 10:30pm on Friday, arrived at the campgrounds at 2:00am on Saturday morning. Saw all the bands I missed first weekend and left Sunday at 8:00 to make it back to Santa Barbara by midnight.
