    if you get there early before the gates open and then camp out in front of the main stage from noon to 9/10/whenever they'll come on, yes. but you'll be missing the point of being at a music festival.

    You don't need to camp out all day. You can probably squeeze in there during one or two bands ahead of their slot. Make sure you bring bottles of water with you!!

    I hope i don't have to camp out all day but you may be underestimating the fanbase that is going to want to have a spot at the front. I will make it to the front if it's the last thing i do. Haha all hell can't stop me now.

    You will be risking your life, literally, if you plan on camping out in front of the mainstage in 90+ degree weather for 12+ hours with no access to water or food.

    thats a bit harsh eh? I mean they are only the one band in the world that I wish i could see before I die, and had always though I'd never get that chance. Until now that is, heck I wouldn't even be going if it wern't for Rage, having said that I ain't going just for Rage, no sir! Manu Chao Infected Mushroom Tiesto Shadow it seems like an epic festival.
    I can't even afford to go so it looks like I'll be getting myself in alot of debt trying to attend and I aint gonna do that just to stand at the back while Rage play

    yeah be careful if you're going up for rage before the show, take food and water, LOTS of water, like 3+ liters of water, preferably even more!

    I'm in the same boat man, i got fired a month a go, still looking for a job and don't know how i'm going to pay rent feb. 1, but I know that on saturday, I'm putting a 3-day ticket on my credit card cuz i gots to see

    RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE

    NO way i hell i'm missing that show - my plan is to get up close a few hours early and be there for when they come on, but hopefully have someone else willing to set up a blanket about midway back. I would much rather have some space and be able to cut loose and rock out than be packed in like a bowl of swag having to worry about catching a flying elbow from the pit.

    On second thought, i've heard it's not a good show and you all should just stay home

    If you're there for rage, then you arent gonna see Infected Mushroom, because they'll be playing in the sahara late...

    Last year myself and two friends stayed front row at the Main stage on Saturday, through the end of Sigur Ros' set. It would have been easy to stay the entire night. We drank probably 18 bottles of water between the three of us from noon until 8pm, then the security guards helped pull us over the gate and we went and ate dinner, then went to the Sahara tent.

    The only challenge in trying to stay at the front row, really, is going to the bathroom. By the time Rage's set is over you would have spent over 12 hrs in the same freakin' spot. I actually left the front at about 3:30 and went to piss and get more water, and squirmed my way to the front during the Duke Spirit. It was really easy to get about 3-4 rows back, but after that, people do NOT want to let any newcomers in.

    It actually shouldn't be all that hard to get a good spot. You just probably should get to the stage that rage is playing on 2 acts beforehand or so and work your way through the crowd.

    Last year I was in the first 5 or so rows for every act I saw. Granted I probably didn't see as many as some people but it was worth it.

    I was in the very front row for Daft Punk and for Tool, and for both of those I showed up 2 acts beforehand.

    oh and just wanted to repeat what was said above. YES!!!! bring water and as much of it as you can carry on you.

    Im assuming the crowd will be similar to tool's crowd from last year (in terms of massive size) and I know when I was in the crowd for yeah yeah yeahs and massive attack water was in very short supply, and everyone would have killed to get their hands on even just a drop. Luckily security was throwing out bottles to people (especially in the front) and I made friends with some of the people around me so if any of us caught one we would share it with everyone.


    and for the setting up a blanket idea, that won't work with you getting close to the stage.... if you want to sit more in the back then yeah, but the crowd is going to be PACKED.

    So true. In 06 there was just a ridiculous amount of people crowding around the main stage during most of the main acts, Tool and Depeche Mode especially.

    I think I took two different dicks in the ass during Tool alone. During Depeche Mode, we were about 20 feet out and to the right of the main stage and we got absolutely crushed for over 2 1/2 hours.

    The best spots are about 1/3 of the way out from the main stage, near the sound booth, where you can have a fence to your back.

    If you're there purely for Rage, get in the gates at 11, go buy 10 water bottles, put them in a bag, and get to the main stage and stay there until they come on.
