Premier camping was great! LOTS of room and a gorgeous view of the Gorge and the venue. I waited maybe at most 10 minutes for the shower (One time I didn't have to wait at all) and I took a nice shit every day in the one flushable toilet that they had.
the people that showed up early on friday got absolutely fucked over for camping space. the space they allowed us between our cars that were smashed together like a damn parking lot barely allowed enough room for 1 tent per vehicle. when people didnt park their cars RIGHT next to the car next to them the security started threatening to have people's cars towed....WTF! thankfully once they moved further down to keep parking everyone else we were able to spread out and actually ended up with a pretty decent amount of space. then it seemed the later into the day it got the less they cared about squeezing everyone in, so people who showed up in the evening were spaced apart quite a bit.

I didn't get in until after dark, and they were still trying to squeeze us in as close as possible. They made us re-park three times to get closer to the next car. It was by far the least amount of room I've had to camp.
Others near us had huge spaces between cars with giant tents and canopies set up. I guess the lesson as always, be female, be hot.
the people that arrive early to premier always seem to get fucked over, and the people that show up overnight friday into saturday end up with plenty of space. it was like that last year, and especially this year. we had to fight with the campground staff goons to be able to put out an awning from our tent trailer and park the truck next to it. we took up probably twice the space as anyone around us. people in neighboring spots with just cars and tents had about 2 feet of room between them, and were told to re-park their cars several times to squeeze one more group in at the end of the row. it definitely pays to bring a tent trailer or RV.
Thats so weird. We were worried we were going to get screwed over cause by the time we got near the Gorge it was 230 a.m. And altough it did take us 2 hours to make it 2 kilometres to our final spot, which was over flow camping, there was no one directing anyone, we ended up with sooo much room for activities. our next door neighbors had a space for beersebie and there was a rv with a DJ tent.... space was not an issue there. I did however, walk through(got lost) in the regular camping and was surprised to see everything so cramped. It made me feel happy that we didn't get to set up our tent till 5 am Saturday morning , because our campsite was the shit.
yea we were in overflow last year and literally had probably a quarter acre to ourselves, but last year the overflow camping went all the way over to the day parking area where that long line of trees near the entrance of the property is.
It was on the way to the path to the venue. Right next to the gate. There were actually two bathrooms with one toilet and 2 urinals each as well as one shower (A cold one, but it always had zero lineup).
I stayed in premiere and the staff tried to make us re-park closer but we told them to eat it. They didn't really fuck with us too much. We still had very minimal space, but luckily we knew our neighbours and were able to encroach on their space a lot. Next year it's wildhorse for sure. Premiere was not really worth it this year, in my opinion.

We had a huge canopy and three tents to set up; we got there around 3:00 on Friday and they tried give us the equivalent of a parking space. Room for one tent, max.
So I went up to the LiveNation goon and said, dude. We have three tents and this huge fucking canopy, we need more space. The guy says, the rule is nothing can be between the cars. And I said, the RULE is four people to a camping pass. We're moving our car and setting our shit up.
By Saturday afternoon they seem to have abandoned trying to tell people where to camp entirely. But did anyone else notice that LiveNation were SUPER FUCKING ASSHOLE MONGERS this year? Goddamn. More than usual.

yeah> when we pulled in, our group just confused the shit out of the guy directing everyone in. We just started basically yelling random shit and overwhelmed him until he left, and we ended victorious with our 2 cars in 3 cars worth of space. still pretty cramped though. Its cause they knew it was gonna be way worse than last year.
We actually had a lot of space and made good friends with the crew behind us so we had twice as much space. We had a circle of chairs, a big tarpish tent for when it rained, and a grill/table, plus room for all of our tents. Keep in mind that we were in the far corner of overflow though, I guess.
