This cannot be said enough, bring some sort of shade other than a tent. Your tent will be too hot to sleep in by 8am at the latest. The ideal is an eazy-up tent that's either over your tent to keep it cooler or next to it for you to crawl out into when your tent gets too steamy. But even a sheet or tarp strung between your car and your tent will give you someplace to hide in the morning.
My other, less universal, advice is to take it easy early in the day and save energy for the night. You will probably not be able to see all the bands you want during the day, AND night, and night sets are 1000x more fun due to the more agreeable temperature and better festival vibe.
I generally take a break to shower some time in the 6-7pm range to reengergize for the cooler portion of the evening. This DOES mean you have to miss one or two bands you really want to see, but it will pay dividends.
+never waste cooler water, its cold and refreshing, great for a shower...
This is what we do for our Roo Shower... VERY cold,but so refreshing.. and why waste the water?
***the HEAT.. we all know it is hot in Tenn in June, we all have read/posted about the heat and effects of the heat in just about EVERY post on Inforoo...but honestly, unless you live on the sunny side of Hades, nothing can prepare you for the heat/sun.. so plan ahead and bring a shade structure and more water and gatorade than you think you will need... you will thank yourself later!

for those reading the last two pages and getting excited that ambien makes you "hallucinate" let me clear things up. yes you technically can hallucinate on ambien. but you are also literally asleep while doing it.. ie. dreaming with your eyes open. you will not be aware of these hallucinations nor remember them until your friend tells you what you said / did the next day. so don't go stealing any from mommies medicine cabinet thinking you're going to have a bomb night. nothing wrong w a little harm reduction.
These are absolutely fantastic frozen pre-roo. Then thrown in the cooler to stay cold while at Centeroo. Jade got me hooked on these last year. Lived off of them for every other festival after that in 2012.
