Being in the shade and having a steady supply of water is just a start......I camped in bfe last year and only used my tent to change clothes....Slept in my vehicle...By Sunday morning, I was ready to get out of there....This festival needs to be open to change. Stop acting like its perfect because it is not. More than 90% of the people at the festival did not die but I'm sure most were stressed and uncomfortable. Sure the vendors are going to make more money because the heat makes your body need more food and fluids...but Bonnaroo should seriously consider changing the festival dates to a cooler month. Just try it one year....Let's see how it goes.
What month do you suggest ? Maybe one where 60+% of the demographic is in school ? Oh, that is not a good idea.
"More then 90% of the people did not die" Better do your math again...
So rough numbers 80,000 attendees, 10,000+ workers, volunteers, vendors, police, security and two deaths is 0.00002%
