Thread: Friday W1 ClusterF*** entry discussion

    Default Friday W1 ClusterF*** entry discussion

    I think this deserves its own thread and I did not see one. It has been well discussed that weekend one friday afternoon, there was some major clusterfucks entering the festival.

    It was cleared up and only 5 minute wait saturday and sunday at the same time....

    The lines were just not moving for an hour. At one point the crowd just rushed an entranced and plowed in..

    Do we know what happened? Did the scanners not work for awhile or something?

    Scanners were working and people were getting in. The line I was in only had one person searching people though.

    That shit was horrible. Waited an hour in line. Never saw C2C. Made it in just in time for Dillon Francis. It was all worked out though for Saturday and Sunday.

    Lines were not moving around 2:15. After someone passed out in line they pushed people through.

    I did notice an absurd amount pf people who didnt know how to.scan their wristband.

    my gf waited 1.5 hrs in one line and it just wasn't moving until the crowd surged.

    the lines were all the way back to the fencing and really thick

    one lane people just plowed through, would have been easy to sneak in during this time.

    If you walked around 10 min to the day parking entrance, there was a 5 min line.

    I was stuck in that mess and was fuming. I got to the front of the line I was in (it was the only one barely moving) and they were only letting VIP through. There was no way of knowing that it was a VIP line, as there was no sign or anything marking a VIP only entrance. Security said "Not our fault. Talk to the promoter." Another guy in line was yelling at a cop about the fiasco and the cop just kept telling him "Go away."
    I texted my friends who came later that it was a clusterfuck, but they showed up 15 minutes later and had absolutely no wait time.
    Horrible start to W1 but I was over it after seeing Palma Violets.

    Yep. Got in line around 1 and didn't make it in until 2:30.. by the time I got to the front they didn't search me nor scan my wristband. Just told me to "go on through!". Ridiculous
