Lots of fresh fruit ( vitamins kiddies ) Beef Jerky ( for protein plus its awesome) Cards , Football , Frisbee ( for that akward time when you're starting to get a good buzz but aren't ready to hit the venue)
Journeys Greatest Hits ( need I say more) Single girls ( with low standards preferably)
Things to leave at home: Your inhibitions Crap music ( if I hear Lady Gaga at 3am I'll lose it ) That guy who says "I listened to Kings of Leon before they got huge" ( for the record I did listen to KoL before they got huge) Anyone who doesn't like Fleet Foxes
Nice list Chops. Good stuff. I'll be rocking out Boston's Greatest Hits for good measure. ;D
yay! i second the 'anyone who deosn't like fleet foxes' and... totally Journey... maybe some Sublime and how about some Led Zep?
The only suitable replacement for Journeys Greatest Hits is Def Leppard - Hysteria
2 things I forgot : Advil Liquigels - I don't know if they have anything better in the US , but these are the only things that get rid of my hangover headache in the morning Wet ones- Cause the line for the showers is really long
Someone asked about flying in. We’re flying in today from PA and spending the week hiking after leaving Sasquatch. We have our tent, sleeping bags, backpacks, camelbaks, and clothes in our bags. We’ll buy a cooler, beer, and food in Tykwila before driving out to the Gorge (Tykwila is just north of SeaTac Airport and has a Target/REI). So, bring what you can and then buy what you need.
We might have an easier time of it than others. If I went backpacking all my gear would fit in a backpack and not weigh 50lbs, so fitting it in one suitcase (while still a challenge) wasn’t impossible. I just hope they don’t confiscate my jetboil!

They look at me kind of funny when I bring in my Lumix FZ8, but eventually figure out that a lens hood isn't a zoom lens and I get the ok. They do have a no-detachable-lens policy though. If you bring in a fairly small lens you should be fine.
My general camping list for any sort of camping, not just festivals. This is besides stuff that should be obvious (tent, sleeping bag, thermarest, etc.)
baby wipes / hand sanitizer ear plugs clothing you can layer, including clothing you're OK with sleeping in if you need to a touque for sleeping in (seriously, it might get that cold at night) gloves a frisbee, deck of cards, etc if you're so inclined advil a travel / camping first aid kit if you have one if not, consider a ziplock bag containing some tape, gauze, band aids, and polysporin small broom / brush (to sweep out your tent if you get dirt in it) TP quick-dri towel if you have one, but a towel of some sort nonetheless. protein bars / power bars / trail mix / jerky / dried fruit / etc (portable, high energy food)
Stuff people sometimes forget that I almost always find useful: a hammer (for pounding tent pegs) a flashlight some extra rope
Edit: Yeah, the earplugs aren't general camping gear I realize. Still, I suggest bringing some to Sasquatch
