Okay, I'd like to hear why so many people believe that anyone who drinks is instantly an alcoholic douchebag. I enjoy having a beer every once in a while when I'm watching a show. I hold onto my trash, and throw it out in trash cans. I've done this at every festival I go to. Perhaps I'm an exception to the rule.
One of my favorite festival moments this year was at Lollapalooza, sitting with some friends out on the grass in front of the north stage, drinking a bottle of wine. I've never gotten drunk at a festival; It's just stupid to spend that kind of money to see all that music, and throw it away getting drunk.
So perhaps that's the thing that disappoints me, that there is no way to sip a drink while watching a show beyond sneaking it and risk getting caught. Because of that, I never drank a single beer at Coachella this year. I suppose I didn't have much time for it though, as I was running stage to stage to see everything I wanted. I also didn't drink at all during Bonnaroo, but that was for another reason... too damn hot.
So, I started by getting worked up, and now I guess I realized I rarely have time to drink at festivals anyway. Oh well. Maybe if they offer wine and/or mixed drinks in the quarantine zone, I'll not feel the compulsion to bitch.
Carry on. Oh, and the water situation was fine to me. Better than most.
