Someone add to the first post that if you bring babies to Sasquatch then you are a bad parent.
The BrassTAQ is not a parenting guide.
Also, we're getting a lot more new threads started asking simple questions, sometimes questions that have been asked multiple times. In other words, that is what this thread is for, so I'm going to start locking the simple question threads, and directing them here. It's pretty clear a lot of newbs are not noticing this Q&A/Tips thread that just so happens to be stickied.
Can someone who knows the 411 on the camera situations post a Q & A I can link to the first post. It's a question that is asked several times each year. There are probably four different camera threads already.
AND QUIT ASKING ABOUT DRUGS. There are children, and parents of children on these boards.
I feel as if it ALL depends on who searches your bag. I saw some getting turned away at the gate, and some at the gorge openly using dslr's. It seemed as if once you got past the bag check, security didn't care if you had a dslr, so long as you weren't right up front in the pit.
I'd hide it in something soft like a sweater and get checked by a chill looking young guy.
Nevertheless, anything can happen and it CAN get taken away inside. I don't expect it to happen, but hey, some security personnel take their jobs very seriously. We've all seen them be arses about booze.
Just don't be whipping it out every second and you're good.
better to pass out before a She & Him show than to die of boredom during it.
This hippie girl would disagree with you. Took this pic of a girl sitting by a dumpster during She & Him. She seemed pretty into it. Couldn't tell you why she decided to look like a hobo by the dumpster vs. actually watch in the pit.
Definitely bring at least one cooler, a camp stove or a portable grill for the campground. You may bring personal sized sealed water bottles into the venue along with food in clear plastic containers or bags. Coolers are not permitted in the venue unless they are the soft kind.

This probably sounds asinine but I would suggest Festival goers learn how to jump a car battery before going to the Gorge. More importantly, learn how to pop your hood. Last year on Tuesday morning a group of no less than five adolescents spent over 15 minutes trying to pop the hood to their parent’s car. As much as I enjoyed watching the group, they eventually caught my stare and before I could quickly look away I was asked to help them. I was a bit worried that this car’s hood was impenetrable. 15 seconds later I knew they were just dumbasses.
