Jesus Christ. I couldn't find my tent and I didn't bring a fucking sleeping bag but I sure as hell brought enough fucking rum!
To my knowledge there hasn't been a death attributable to being an irresponsible fucking asshole at Sasquatch, but hey it's bound to happen eventually and if that statistic doesn't end up being you it will undoubtedly be some other douchestick just like you.

You fucking know what, dude? 2011, I had a friend that I was pretty sure was going to die of dehydration on Sunday morning; I tried to walk him to the medical tent, but he couldn't make it fifty yards. So I was like, well, alright, dude's gonna fucking die and he's my buddy, so I goes, I goes Hey dude, hop in yr car, I'm gonna drive you the quarter mile to the medical tent, okay buddy? and he goes, Yeh, Gramma. Yeh. Yeh. Take me on down to dat big medical tent up in da sky, Gramma. And then I goes, I goes like this, I goes Oh shit, motherfucker, I been drinkin' the McNaughty with Gibbons since 9:00am. It would be irresponsible of me to do that thing that I just said so I'm gonna have to go get the medical tents to come over here okay buddy? and he goes Yeh, man, yeh, I mean like I'm pretty sure I'll be dead before you get back because I only been eatin' rice crackers n' molly since Thursday night, but I understand where you're comin' from and so then we made him eat some spam and drink a fucking gatorade and that was the best we could do because only a fucking asshole hops in his mom's Jetta and goes tooling around in a sea of drunken revelers because that is the manner after which fucking assholes behave[/b][/u].
That was a true fucking story. Don't drink and drive. Even at Sasquatch.

I seriously wait like a responsible adult until the cars are parked and the zone has been marked before I crack my first goddam beer every year. This guy all showing flagrant disregard for common sense filled me with rage.
In other news, his 11 post history is chock full of solid fucking gold. Best to cap that before it goes south.

Alright, alright. I stand by every last word I said, with the exception of 'banned'. Unbanned. It is not admirable to be so reactionary as that. Dude's still a motherfucker, and I'll kick anyone's ass who drives drunk at fucking Sasquatch, but on the off-chance that reachforthesky is wonk I'm gonna let him stay. Wonk don't need any more feathers in his cap when it comes to making me look foolish.

Ohh that was awesome....you fucking raged hard as shit. Do you really think I was "drunk" as I was driving threw the grounds? Ok yeah I may have had a beer in hand- that doesn't constitute complete disregard for safety of me, my passengers, or other citizens. Yeah Is it illegal to have an open container in your car? Sure... Buzzed/drunk driving,Yeah? But mild amount of drinking- big whoop. No different then having a glass of wine then putting your dumbass behind the wheel. I'm sure there is alot more idiotic things that happen then my incident at Sasquatch- I'm sure as fuck not trying to "out-do" anyone or showoff. Just a life experience to share...
Tooling around? Yes, a direct line of cars all going to a central destination is tooling. I was surely just wildly taking a motor vehicle into a perfectly peaceful environment and causing pure chaos. Fucking hell on wheels I tell you.
be weary of drinking too much....especially if you're the one driving. I was so stoked when they lined us up in rows that we all just waited, listened to music, and what else, drank. All sounds well to me. Shit moves so slow people let their cars roll with them while they are outside playing Frisbee and football. Precede to get fucked up, drive some more, get free Redbull, save for later and drink more beer.
I also like to use the hinged lid storage boxes like the Sterilite 19148006 and mark them with a large maker with words like: FOOD; COOKING; PARTY SUPPLIES I am retentive enough that I tape a list on each box of what is in the box, like: 3x cans refried beans; 3x pouches tuna; can opener; box of instant hot cocoa; graham crackers…. Of course I use this system year round and have it set up so I can kick off early on a Friday and do not have to get ready for camping.
Pack lots of Clif Bars (or your favorite equivalent.) Crashing from starvation at 3:00 PM sucks.
For me my main meal each day was in the festival, look for something reasonable like a veggie burrito with brown rice so you don't hate yourself 2 hours later with that Yucky-Soba hits your colon. The only real meal I cooked was breakfast. I would have a nice breakfast, then a light snack at night when I got back (something EASY to fix).
I need thrifty lighting suggestions! Last year we had a canopy, and lanterns and flashlights did not cut it for our camp. I was thinking about getting some solar powered string lights or something of the like, but generally speaking LEDs are pretty dim. It's too windy for candles/tiki torches (are those even acceptable?) Help me out yo, I've been pining over this issue for the past two years!
What do you need lighting for? Just seeing your way around? Reading? LED's are generally the most efficient. For lumens / $ it is hard to beat the propane or white gas lanterns. Two of those on posts should provide plenty of light for a two or three tent camp. For under a canopy, there are some battery powered LED's on strings that work great. Just search "LED Camp lighting" on Amazon.
