I went three straight years from 2001-2003 and became hooked on going regardless of what the sacrifice was.
The last one was the Beastie Boys/RHCP event and I ended up getting a bunch of friends hooked on going and havent missed a show since while I haven't gone to one since.
Since then, I have had a girlfriend-turned fiance and daughter that has made it complicated financially. From 04-09, it really hasn't been an option.
However, this year is a real possibility. What I want to know are a few things -
Anyone here gone every year or close to it?. How much has it grown attendance wise since 03? Is there anything really different? Is the setup still virtually the same? How is it three days compared to two? Is it completely tiring at the end of the third day? I remember being drained at the end of day two alone and I was only 21 the last time I went, I am 28 now so I am not sure I have the same energy as I did then.
Is it still virtually the same experience these days as it was seven years ago. I am really trying to convince my girl to go. I have yet to be to a three day event and I am pretty set on going at this point.
