Updated. Schedule graphic now shows Wolfgang closing. If the real set times are something like this, it would be an exceptional day, getting to take in Charles Bradley->I Break Horses->Todd Barry->Purity Ring->Metric->St. Vincent->Jack White. The only negatives would be having to see chune-yards to get a good spot for St. Vincent and missing Dum Dum Girls to do the same for Metric, but would get to see all my must-sees, so no complaints there.
I'm mainly being critical of your Gartner placement because I'll be racing against the clock to get to the Gorge to see him. The later the better.
And holy shit. I just realized I'll be arriving for the first time ever after dark. And solo. How spooky...
Pea you should probably find out the best place to park and get your wristband if you are going to be in a time crunch. It would be a damn shame to show up at the gate at 930 and find out you have to go to the booth in the campground to get your wristband.
Yea I'll be keeping in touch with my friends to get an idea of what my best game plan should be upon arriving. I mainly plan on parking and running in as soon as I get there and then worrying about settling into my campsite after the fest ends that night.

Pea, if'n you want we could Dr. Garbanzoure out a way to haul your tent up with us and get it set up for you so you don't end up way the fuck out in overflow again. That way you could just pull in and park and not have to worry about setting up camp in the dark and can just bounce on into the festival. Then after we can convoy your cooler and other shit over to wherever we are.
Ahh I really appreciate that, but I think I'm just going to share a tent with some of my regular camp buddies this year. They have a tent the size of Texas so it should work out well. I really just plan on showing up with not much more than a sleeping bag and pillow. Pretty excited about it haha.
If Pollstar is correct about Friday and earlier reports are correct, that makes it 14 on Friday this year, which is up from 9 last year.
2011:Foo Dr. Garbanzohters (Sas), DFA 1979 (Sas), The Bronx (Sas), Bob Mould (Sas), Against Me (Big), Biff Clyro (Big) , Rival Schools (Big) Mariachi El Bronx (Yeti), DJ Anjali & the Incredible Kid (Banana).
I don't think that means they start any earlier, however. They are just fleshing out the stages more. Last only Mariachi played the Yeti and only Anjali/Incredible played the Banana Shack. This year so far, according to earlier reports:
Pretty Lights Girl Talk Santigold Of Monsters and Men Allen Stone
EITS Ben Howard Polica
honeyhoney Sean Wheeler & Zander Schloss
Beats Antique SBTRKT STRFKR Little People
There's one more on the Sasquatch last year but that stage started at 5:45 in 2011. The Sasquatch stage might start a little earlier than last year but I would imagine the festival still starts at 4 on Friday. There's still room on the Yeti and Bigfoot as well, should they choose.
