I'm down with the longer sets as well. Don't like that the headliners have no competition though. Not a fan of Deadmau5 and I've seen Outkast so I would prefer to have another choice or two.
Friday is free of conflicts for me. Pretty bummed that Earl had to cancel but at least I've seen him before. Saturday has the Girl Talk vs. Flying Lotus conflict which sucks. Not sure what to see yet, Sunday has Justice vs. Modest Mouse vs. St. Vincent. I'll probably go with Justice because I just saw St. Vincent and I'll be seeing Modest Mouse back in Calgary.
My days go like this at the moment:
Friday: Blondie -- Tyler, the Creator -- Soundgarden (some) -- Kendrick Lamar -- Nine Inch Nails -- Schoolboy Q -- Best Coast Saturday: Dinosaur Jr. -- Metz -- TV on the Radio -- The Flaming Lips -- The New Pornographers -- Girl Talk/Flying Lotus -- Araabmuzik Sunday: Foxygen -- Fucked Up -- Frank Ocean -- Justice -- Outkast
The answer is definitely Flying Lotus. While fun, Girl Talk tours constantly, and FlyLo has a new album coming out soonish so it will probably be an amazing show full of great new tunes. Plus his stage setup is very cool.
Each person is allowed each of the items listed -- so a case of beer and a 2 bottles of wine, etc. Also, I read a comment on the facebook page a while back where they said you're allowed to go back to your car to get items, including more booze.
Plus, it's probably not that hard to put some of it on your backpack and they'll never know. I'm sure, like other festivals, the only part they might actually care about is glass containers.

Every year at Squamish the official policy is that there's no booze allowed in the campground (it's a park, liquor laws... Blah blah) but every year I walk in holding a flat of beer and the dudes just look and my wristband and I walk in.
It won't be enforced at all. Technically last year (2008) booze weren't allowed at all. They didn't seem to care for the most part.
Yeah, apparently the entire security team walked off the job by day two. davers has a great story about a friend that showed up to the gate without a ticket and a dog on a leash. One of the security guards at the gate just wanted to pet the dog and the other was hanging out of a tree high on acid, I believe?
So, if this year's fest is only half of the clusterfuck as that year, I'll be highly impressed. But I'm prepping for security guards dangling from trees on acid.
Read as: I am crazy and am the only person ever who is not in love with St. Vincent.
If I was nearly incapacitated, Stormy would be my best translator. I could clinch my fist, fart, and making a choking sound, and she would say, "wonk is pissed at you, doesn't understand why you routinely talk out of your ass, and thinks you should suck his dick."
I've had little time for internet lately but I figured I'd come on here to say that I had a great time at Pemberton and I saw lots of amazing stuff. I was pretty impressed with how smoothly most things went, given the reputation of the festival. Probably won't be able to make it to next year's festival but I'm happy I could go to this one.
