Coming from 'Londonengland' this'll be my first festival in the US. Bit worried as I'm reading stuff like there's no alcohol allowed on the festival campsite (apart from whatever expensive drinks they feel like serving you at the onsite bars) and everyone's in bed by 2am...wtf?!

Basically where do people stay if post-gig fun/mayhem is a priority? I've always considered that a big part of going to festivals over here. There's no way I'm going to be able to sleep after seeing Rage anyway! Lake Cahuilla looks cool, but sounds like it's a good few miles away?
