Two things I think The Gorge and/or Sasquatch organizers should consider one day. Feel free to add your ideas.
1. Rentable lockers in the venue: Coachella has 'em. Why not The Gorge? As much as I "enjoy" abandoning stuff on the hill when going to the floor or side stage, I'd love to be able to stash my backpack or blanket in a locker. My friends last year worked around this by buying some cheap thrift store blankets and bags that they wouldn't care if they lost.
2. How about Sasquatch blankets or beach towels?: Just think, you have thousands of people sitting on the grassy hill. Why not make some merch money on a blanket or beach towel with a Sasquatch logo and lineup?

1. Clean bathrooms, just because it's near the end of the night, doesn't mean you should just let the bathrooms get trashed.
2. Also, the security needs to be consistant. Last year, the first day we breezed right through and the 2nd day was as if someone brought in heroin. Plus, open up more than 2 lanes when checking bags and tickets.
you know, that towel idea would probably sell a ton...do they sell ponchos there usually? they could have made a killing in 2006... i dig the security check suggestion too. i almost completely missed the blakes last year because of that crap! otherwise, hey, i love the gorge and sasquatch! my excitement is already disproportionate to the knowledge i have of the lineup+the time i have to wait to go

they should also let people go in and out if they are camping (like bonnaroo). the only year that they have ever allowed re-entry was in 2006 after the rain/hail storm that flooded half the campground and totally soaked everyone. it would just be nice to not have to carry stuff around during the day while its hot just because you need something warmer at night because it is so cold.
1) A few misting tents scattered around the venue 2) Running water that lasts more than 1 day in the campground 3) Local area vendors, or a farmer's market-style food tent 4) Mobile vendors in the campground. Think of a golf cart selling ice. IT PRINTS FUCKING MONEY!
