Weed is a mild drug; the majority of people doing it the first time don't feel much of anything. However I know a few people who've had adverse effects when they tried it, such as nausea, paranoia, and general discomfort. I tend to think these are likely related to pre-existing psychological issues, but who knows.
I'll probably get razzed for saying this, but my opinion is that a festival isn't the best place to try new drugs. I mostly mean other drugs when I say this, but everyone is different - even weed could put you in a state you don't want to be in... and at festivals you want to just have a good time and keep the energy levels up.
That being said, very high chances are that it would be a really great first experience doing it in an amazing setting that you won't forget, you'll have a great time, everything will sound better, food will taste better, your friends' dumb jokes will be funnier... weed is a great drug.

Take it slow and enjoy it. You dont have to be a king and puff the whole splif. One or two puffs and wait to see how you feel and move on from there. CHEERS

It's a great experience. Good choice.
eat a big breakfast, get high, and eat a candy while you get high because your blood sugar tends to get low when you get high thus giving you a tired feeling, the candy will keep you going. other than that enjoy!
You're gonna smoke pot? What if you get HIGH? You could GET ADDICTED
