Thread: distance tent campsite ...festival entrance

    Default distance tent campsite ...festival entrance

    Just had a look at the map and it seems the tents campsite is pretty far from the festival.... What I 'm trying to find is how many miles you will actually have to walk to get to your tent and most of all how much time it will takes ?

    thx for ur answers

    You could compare the festival maps to a screen shot from google maps to track out an estimate, there should be a key in google maps that shows the distance.

    i would say that it's about a mile or so. guyintucson is correct - it's a 15-20 minute walk assuming you don't stop to do a beerbong or something on the way.

    What is the average time to get inside on the first weekend of Friday in respect to waiting in line?

    Friday F'n sucks - Plan on an hour wait - maybe more (wish I was kidding, but I'm not)
    Sat - 10-15 min average - sometimes there's no wait at all
    Sunday - often no line at all

    Make sure to have a drink with you in line Friday. I went a little later in the day after the main rush last year and still had a good 30-45 minute wait.

    Thanks for stating this...I'm tossing 2 bottles of water in my backpack as soon as I get home. You are correct...it's hot out there - in direct sun and it's a long wait.
    Thanks for the reminder.

    The entrance? Specifically the one on the side that almost no one goes to. Or just go to the main entrance at noon or later and wait in the clusterfuck with everyone else in 100 degree heat. That works, too.

    I meant alcohol, but water/gatorade/coconut water are all good ideas to drink down too.

    Entrance coming from south parking lots usually has a shorter line.

    shush bout the entrance by the lockers lol

    and walking from tent to entrance takes anywhere from 2-20 minutes depending on when you arrive. The first people early Thursday are shouting distance from the venue entrance.

    I got in around 11:30PM on Thursday and had a campsite about as far away as you CAN have one, it was probably between 20-25. However, I got to the grounds at 1130 every morning and didn't leave until after the headliners.
