10 per day. Ideally, 6 or 7.

Depends how well you can schedule your day once set times come out. Unless you're into witnessing entire performances.

i saw over 20 each day last year..

Possibly? all of them. you'll just be running around the whole time and only catching a few songs by each..

there are 5 stages, with acts playing simultaneously on all of them.. do the math (although there are often times when there is only 2 or 3 playing at any one time, due to set changes on other stages)

I usually see 6, maybe 7 full sets a day. Usually thow in 2 or 3 partial sets too.

If you want to see full sets 6 or 7. If you skip a bit you can pull around 10.

that's ridiculous.. if you stayed in the sahara tent all day and never left, you'd see 10-12.. i'm assuming all these people saying 6 or 7 either show up midday or spend an exorbitant amount of time walking around, eating or chilling doing nothing..

yeah but honestly, what's the rush?

I don't wanna be running around in the heat just so i can see a few songs by artists...

not to mention you can't really embrace the atmosphere of a show if you only stick around for a few.

I guess if you're over it, it's not hard to skip around...

that's all a matter of opinion..

at the six festivals on the polo fields i've been to, i usually prefer catch part of two acts i really enjoy, then miss one just to see the entire set of another..

the tents are not that far away from each other, 30 seconds, minute tops, from one stage to the next.. and it sounds like 50 minutes is a short set, but there, in the moment, it's actually much longer.. and frankly, standing at the Main or Outdoor in 107 degree heat, you will welcome the walking around or the going into the tents to check out other acts..

also, people who only spend time at the Main stage, or even the Sahara, are missing the full experience.. after dark is one of the most amazing times to walk around and see everything all lit up, it truly is magical..

but seriously, walking for 30 seconds to the next stage is hardly rushing around all day, when you've been watching an act for half an hour or 50 minutes.. the furthest is the Sahara to the Main, and that is AT MOST a five minute walk (if you walk slow)..

yeah, this is usually what i average as well. i only do full sets for the people i want to see...then bounce from stage to stage for other partials between the full sets i'm catching. usually translates to 6-7 full sets and a couple partials.

same with me. altho some days i've gotten up to 15 or 16 sets.

02-01-2010, 12:27 AM
