I've got a zillion stories to tell, but zero time to for a couple days.
But did anyone else notice all the people passing out/puking/dying before flaming lips? I saw 4 different PEOPLE pass out within a 5ish minute time period right before flaming lips began playing. One of them was the guy standing right next to me. He was acting normal pretty much for the average high person in the crowd, then the next moment he was on the ground twitching right next to me. Also like 15ft to my left some girl was completely motionless and she got carried out of the crowd. She looked dead which was pretty spooky. I hope she is alright now. I'm thinking next year HG should hand out shirts that say hydrate or die.
does anyone know the name of a countryish song that some boys in A1 were blaring off the top of their motor home?? The end of it was just "foot stomping" country music and it repeated Hustle, Hustle a whole ton of times.. loved it..
but not as much as the rest of the festival!!! Will deeeeef be there next year!!!
First Story: Biffy Clyro was my first ever concert experience Second Story: During Bright Eyes, my dehydrated ass passed out while I was in the pit with my boyfriend Third Story: My boyfriend went out for a walk and I passed out and woke up the next morning to him showing me a ticket he had gotten for possession of marijuana, falsifications, and having a beer and only being 20. They put him in handcuffs and shit.. Funny stuff.. Next year I will be SOOO Much more prepared though..
Overall. I had the time of my life and thank you to all the people who helped me get there.
Did anyone else get passed a bottle of Maker's Mark during Guided By Voices? I fucking love the guy who brought that in and passed it around. It perfectly represented everything great about Guided by Voices
Was anyone else in the great crowd surge of 2011?? It was on Sunday at like 4pm.. I got to the front gate at about 3:15 and waited and waited and didn't move at all for about half an hour. I think mostly everyone around me had taken something and were starting to freak out. Eventually people just started pushing and then things got really bad. Everyone was so close together with no where to go.
People got really crazy and pushed forward so hard that the security couldn't hold back the crowd and everyone went rushing through. There were tables pushed over and the security was just kind if watching. I think the people scanning just kind of ran away too because I didn't see any of them. It was nuts!
Anyways... Was I the only one headed in then? (also, the times may be very wrong.. I'm guessing)
