I would advise anyone even mildly considering going to do the presale. So much easier, and you know that shiz always sells out so there is never a problem unloading if it turns out you can't make it.
Take a look at the travel packages as well. They include hotel, ticket and shuttle passes in groups of 2 or 4. They are roughly the same price as doing all those things on your own (if you get a hotel near a shuttle line) and last year were available all year, rather than having to scramble and be ready to buy at the presale.
You guys did have better weather than us, but I personally loved cruising through the DoLab just to get wet and and cool down between shows. The early afternoon was brutal, heat wise. Being able to cool down with the misters and go sit under those big cone shade things was life saving.
We also had much lower attendance and the crowds were thinner in every aspect, so maybe that's why I didn't really get bothered by it at all.
Doing Coachella and Bonnaroo in the same year makes waiting for Bonnaroo a quacking breeze.
Yea I agree but it could be somewhat a case of yin yang. Waka is my next fest then the Roo but I just bought tics to VooDoo and made sure to see if I was pre registered for Tomorrrowworld tics tomorrow. It makes it where you are thinking about multiple fests at once so the pressure isn't on over thinking a fest but maybe it's also I don't focus on each as much as I should .... I guess I could have worse problems ... cr****
