    Lots of planning ahead of time, but usually don't get to see everyone on my list.

    I create a spreadsheet and listen to every band multiple times, taking notes of: their style, assumed influences and my overall enjoyment of their music.

    I then stack rank the bands by day and then listen to bands again to work out conflicts of priority.

    When the schedule comes out, I further refine the order in which I'd prefer to enjoy the bands and assign a color-coded key to a custom timetable template.

    As I attend Weekend 2, I further watch every livestream possible and read selected reviews of Weekend 1 performances, which further narrows the sets I plan on attending.

    Once I arrive at the festival, I throw all that out the window and find a groove and go with it for the weekend.

    It's my own personal Hell, thanks!
