In terms of music? I was wondering if anyone here had been there before, and what badge is worth getting?
go once you'll want to go every year.
I'm heading out for my fourth in a row!
There are a few threads in the Festival section
I have been the last 2 years although I am not going this year (aaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrgggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhh raging).
Really good, tonnes of great bands, venues, gigs, girls etc etc. And everyone you meet is so sound. Best festival/music type thing i have ever been to and I have been to a lot.
I am jealous of you Lorne!
seems a bit hot, though. not not fun have a showcase there this year! it'd be worth the trip just for that.
last year was depressing. i couldn't get in to see most of the acts i wanted to see and felt really sorry for acts who'd travelled from far flung places to play to just a hand-full of people. i've been the past 5 years but i'm not planning to go this year.
also, a little warning, if you're under 21 you'll not be able to get into many shows due to US licensing laws.
As it only takes one audience member to change their fortune if they're lucky.
is it a drunken festival kind of thing? Or is it quite uptight and industry? A bit of both I'm guessing.
But it all varies as bands play in over fifty different venues.
It's certainly not uptight anyway.
