Bring extra socks. Dress in layers, and be prepared for literally any kind of weather imaginable. Absolutely bring at least a cheap little plastic poncho. Bring a backpack large enough to carry around everything that you will need during the day including extra clothes, snacks, water, corn chips, inflatable animals, etc., because there has traditionally been a no re-entry policy (although our fingers are crossed that that has changed).
Understand that although Sasquatch! is the most fun it is possible to have as a human being, it is absolutely a test of endurance. DRINK WATER. Whether you are drinking alcohol, frying on shrooms or just sitting on a cliff side in the sun for twelve hours, you must drink lots of water. You are in a desert region and you will dehydrate.
That's basic stuff, but it is basic stuff that a lot of people forget. I even went so far as to make a checklist for this dude that went with us for his first Sasquatch in '10, and he completely neglected to use it and I ended up babysitting him all damn weekend. Don't be that guy.
basically what HG is saying is...
everyone brings high quality corn chips and you should definitely trust anyone that tries selling you some! ;D

Yeah it goes without saying that everyone at Sasquatch, from your camp neighbor to the homeless dude selling hand-slopped gyros, has your best interests at heart. They can and should be trusted with your life.
you can pretty much bring anything you want into the campground. as long as you aren't being a total obnoxious scumbag no one will bother you about it. sneaking things into the festival itself requires the standard creative hiding places and schemes.

Sneaking alcohol in is a pain in the ass, and then once you're inside the festival they enforce the shit out of it. If they catch you drinking alcohol out of an unauthorized container, they'll take it away and dump it out. If they catch you drinking alcohol and you are a minor, most likely you'll spend the rest of the day in the campground.

Yeah, I wouldn't. Beverage Enforcement goons are literally everywhere, and they like to make an example of kids they catch drinking.
Interestingly they seem to give no shit if you are puffing a joint, though. Take advantage of that, nobody wants to get shitfaced in 85 degree weather anyway. Or rather, some people do, but that's dumb.
