  1. Advice for Looking for Last Minute House / Hotels

    **FOR WEEKEND 1**

    Hey guys!

    I've always been a festival camper, but this time have a pretty sizable group who are suddenly interested in staying in doors (we're getting old I guess!). What's...
  2. Grouplove, Smallpools, MS MR @ Glass House 4/22

    Missed Grouplove and MS MR and the festival and want to try and make up for it.
    The show at the Glass House is sold out, but I'd still love to buy tickets off someone.
    Please let me know if...

    Re: Did it seem more crowded this year?

    Friday felt a lot more packed than past years, but I've also gone weekend 1 the last two years and the weather has been a shit show. The upside to the sand storm on Saturday was more room.

    Can't even believe I'm saying this but we went to Little Dragon and got sucked back into Calvin Harris. The energy was just really really high. We couldn't help ourselves.
  9. Re: How long was the wait at will call Thursday?

    I went early so no one had to wait for me. I arrived at 2:30 and literally walked right up to the front of the line. I don't think you'll have much of a problem :) Just leave a little time to find it.
