Greetings thousands of the worlds most passionate festival goers. Posting as a new person to this forum is really intimidating. Go easy on me.
My name is Tucker Gumber. Coachella 2011 changed my life forever and is the reason I am The Festival Guy. It was because of Coachella that I knew festivals were something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Since then I've been to 28 festivals and I started a website, www.TheFestivalGuy.com, to document my adventure.
You can see the list of festivals I have attended here.
To make a long story short. I found something that I loved and did everything in my power to make it my life. This included being homeless so I could go to festivals instead of paying rent somewhere. I'm basically a professional festival volunteer.
Now I am ready to take everything that I have learned and try and find ways to enhance the festival experience for everyone. The idea is pretty simple. There are things that we the festival crowd could do to make this year of festivals different and more fun than any other. Imagine if there were no more bottles littered everywhere after a show ended. Or if everyone would light up the front of their car in the campground. It would turn the big parking lot into a glowing art walk. If we worked together we could make this happen very easily.
So I come to you today to ask you for help. I have a video coming out on Wednesday at 3:30pm that explains my story and the simple concept of what festivals could be like if We The Festival tried just a little bit. If you think any of this is a good idea it would mean the world to me for you to share that video. Social media let's us decide what the real news is. If hundreds of us posted the same video at the same time, the world would notice. Sharing the video is the first step we can take to making 2013 the year that festivals went from really fun weekend, to a festival utopia created by you and me.
I'll post the video on Wednesday at 3pm PST.
See you in paradise,
