Hi guys, I'm planning to attend sasquatch this year and I'm feeling relatively overwhelmed. I have a few questions - I already checked the FAQ.
-is a cooler full of outside food / drink allowed? Campsite Yes, Inside the venue No
-how much is a decent meal? depends on what you define by decent. Generally most food costs anywhere between $7-$10
-if I'm in premiere camping or whatever, can I easily get to the regular parking for the parties and stuff? it was last year. we'll see if the alleged 2011 tighter restriction rumors hold true.
-how much space is allotted for tents, both in premiere and regular? you have more room to set your things up in premiere camping than regular --- but you should enough room in both.
-how much space is between the camping and the venue? Premier camping: the walking distance is about 2-3 beers, Regular camping: anywhere between 3-5 beers.
-what exactly does no re-entry mean? It means you can't enter the venue, leave and then come back again.
-will sneaking in booze be difficult? this depends on who's checking your bag and how savvy/adventurous you are. generally, it's pretty difficult.
-when does the full schedule with times coming out? a few weeks or so before the actual festival begins.
-when does the music start in the morning? Noonish
-if we arrive thursday night will it cause us problems? i don't understand this question. do you mean traffic? if so, that depends on the time of day you arrive. the earlier you get there, the better chance you'll have of getting through unscathed.
-should I worry about my things being stolen? no more than you would any other day of the week. Be smart. Lock up your valuables in your car.
Just show up and the rest will take care of itself.
Pretty much, just remember your passport if you are coming from Canada. I hear the drive back home from the border sucks. Also, bring 2x as much beer as you think you will need. It goes amazingly fast when you are drinking for 14 hours a day.
Also, bring 2x as much beer as you think you will need.
This. I insisted, let me repeat that, insisted, that we did not have enough beer last year and I was told by my camping mates that we had plenty and that we did not need more. Shocking conclusion: we did not have enough beer.
I am always amazed when people come way short on the beer situation. Last year we did run out at about midnight on Sunday, but at that point it was probably for the best.
We thought 102 beers and 4 liters (a gallon) of various liquor would be plenty for the 4 people in our car (2 of them girls who werent heavy drinkers) and lo and behold we just made it.
Also, to pot smoking americans: bring more weed than you need. I Dr. Garbanzoure if it rhymes people will remember. Most canadians arent willing to risk bringing it across the border and will pay some pretty stupid prices for it if we want it bad enough. So, gouge away!

Hey guys, I do REALLY appreciate the answers, and I did look through a few threads before posting this. I admit I maybe didn't go through all 48 pages, but you know... I think I have a general feel for everything I need to know, but I'll just keep lurking. Thanks.
