If you were hoping for Bon Iver, don't hold your breath:
I was asking the OP.
I completely understand what both of you are saying though, I was just wondering if OP had tried earplugs.
I'm an extremely light sleeper and the only sleep issues I had...
I can understand how shitty this may have been, but did you ever consider earplugs? Or did they just not work?
Forgot one huge pro: all of you!! I don't know what it was but it seemed like everyone we met was just incredibly fun, friendly, and laid back. Perhaps it was because we avoided the sahara but I just...
- getting in and out of the grounds was incredibly easy. Lines to get in were minimal and security was actually doing a great job.
- loved the new path from the terrace to Sahara. Seemed to...
Loved it. My favorite set of the weekend.
2.) Run the Jewels
4.) St. Vincent
5.) Cloud Nothings
Stromae- an epic dance party that I unfortunately had to leave after 15-20 minutes to see St....
I think it will be somewhat less crowded this year.
Not because of ~2k unused tickets but because people may choose to spend less total hours on the fields than in a year with a stronger lineup. ...
Seeing W1 for $394 right now on stubhub and I'm sure they have occasionally been selling for less. OP wins.
This is the best stuff money can buy:
Saw tickets for $430 for wk1 an hour or so ago on stubhub...currently 2,578 tix for wk1 available.
Looks like those who waited are going to be rewarded.
I've gone W1 2012-2014 and felt this year was easily the most crowded of those 3 years.
However, there is a difference between annoyingly crowded and dangerously crowded and I thought this year...
Saw TomAZ at Bo Ningen rocking a vintage Anquan Boldin AZ Cardinals jersey.
This was not hard to do as there were sadly only about 200 people at this epic performance.
No problems bringing mine in and I also brought a spare battery in at times.
I didn't try to bring any extra juice, just went back to camp to fill up again so I don't know how strict they were...
I believe all beers are $10.
The caveat is that the size of the pour depended on the specific beer.
So your rare/expensive/high ABV beers were $10 for an 8 oz pour and your...
I had a great time but I felt this year was more crowded than the last 2 years.
I don't know if they sold more tickets or if people are just showing up earlier and staying longer but it seemed...
Our group of 5 cars arrived at 9:10 to a nearly 100% full search lot. I was worried because there were a lot more people there than we we arrived around 10:00 last year. Unlike last year though they...
Holy shit this is amazing. Are you people for real?
I was in a car accident many years ago and can't stand for long periods without being in a lot of pain due to pain in my mid and lower back and sciatica in both of my heels.
My typical strategy is...
Here is the current average of the 3 sites I have been checking (weather.com, accuweather.com, and wunderground.com):
Is this one spot for 6 people?
Do you know how big the spots are?
Not trying to rain on your parade, just hoping you realize that 6 in one spot may not be very comfortable for any of you.
Lowest for W1 on stubhub right now is $682, 836 tickets available.
This is kind of blowing my mind. I would have lost a lot of money betting tix would be near face again by now. Is demand really...
Weekend 1 pre-sale, two GA plus camping. No email, no nothing yet.
Deep cycle marine battery plus inverter.
Get more than one if you need more power.
I believe that's just the campgrounds. Would be great if it was inside but they aren't going to lose out on the chance to charge you $7/$9 for beer.
Because Heineken has money to spend
Would love to see Stone, Sierra Nevada, Lagunitas, etc. on the polo fields one day but it's probably never going to happen
Hey, go fuck yourself.
Eyedrops are allowed, e-liquid is not.
Not saying what will actually happen or what will be enforced, but those are the rules.
Did you read the part where you are not allowed to re-fill them?
So you can bring in the e-cig, you just can't refill it with the liquid you need to make it work. Once it runs out of the liquid in...
Does it look like something you may be able to smoke drugs out of?
If so, I would assume security could confiscate it.
I really don't know, I'm just trying to use common sense here
Liquor is not allowed and that is a rule that has been in place for at least a few years, if not longer.
If you're going to risk smuggling it in, make sure you don't bring any glass bottles and be...
Kevin, I feel for you.
It sounds like you are going to learn from this and if this is the worst mistake you make this year, you will probably have a pretty good year.
Good luck and I hope you...
Tom's post is from 2013
Cheapest I've seen this year for weekend 1 was $490 the day before tickets went on sale.
I expect them to be close to face a week or 2 before the festival, like the last...
I like the music but whenever I watch a live video, they just seem so boring.
I will probably check them out but will have a backup plan.
Just going to leave these here:
As of today:
If the transaction was done through ebay, can't you contact them and ask if you have any recourse?
From the camping FAQ:
Can I bring my friends into camp?
Sure, as long as everyone has a festival pass you can have them come to your camping spot.
We bought this tent last year and it worked out pretty great.
It's a $55 coleman tent that is 8X6 which means it can fit nicely between 2 cars to maximize space at your site, if you park the cars...
Way less than 6 hours from Phoenix. If you drove 6 hours west from Phoenix you'd be in the Pacific Ocean.
It's about 3.5 hours from Phoenix to Indio.
I really enjoyed this set too but thought it was brought down a bit by the sound bleed from Phoenix. I'm surprised more people haven't mentioned this. We were on the far right side about 2/3 of the...
We got there at 9:30 AM Thursday. We arrived an hour or so earlier than we did last year and had a wait that was 3X as long (~2.5 hrs compared to 45 minutes in 2012).
We really could not figure...
I guess one thing that was confusing me is seeing 2 Bears projected in the new tent. I was assuming this was going to be a live show with just 2 Bears songs and I couldn't figure out...
I still don't understand the rationalization for everyone getting 2 hours in the new tent. I think this is going to throw things off but maybe I missed something.
We use a deep cycle marine battery. Around $120 or so from Batteries Plus and it will power a large stereo and do all of our phone charging for 4 days without needing a recharge. You also need an...
The entire La Blogotheque "A Take Away Show" series is fantastic. They have impromtu shows by Phoenix, Sigur Ros, The Lumineers, Alt-J, Yeasayer and Local Natives just to name a handful.
The Shouting Matches (this hurts coming from a big fan of Justin Vernon)
