Read through the thread from last year and whatnot, still wondering about a couple things, though.
1.Any idea how long we can expect to wait to get into the festival on Friday? Went to Bonnaroo last year and it was like 9 hours we had to sit in our car and wait.
2. Can any Seattle residents recommend some cool things to check out in Seattle, aside from the Space Needle? Coming from the Midwest, so it'd be excellent to have some things to scope out in the city before Sasq.
I've never waited longer than an hour or so to get in... I know I'm lucky in this regard though. If you get there Thursday around the time they are opening the gates (5PM) to the campground, it shouldn't be too bad as I imagine quite a few people will be working that day. It will be very busy through the night Thursday into Friday...
I'll leave your second question up to a Seattleite.

1. It will definitely not take 9 hours. Really, I don't think I've ever had to wait in line for more than 2 hours or so, and its actually kind of a fun wait.
2. The EMP (Experienced Music Project) is alright. You could also check out Pike Place Market which is free, and awesome. Other people who've spent more time in Seattle could probably guide you better.

Codymeh--I think the boy and I are gonna check out a mariners game while in Seattle. Also, check out Pike Place. That area has great shopping, food, and even a farmers market. Last year, we hung out in Olympia, too. Abd if you have a day to spare, take a day trip to Portland. Totally worth it. :-)
If you go to Pike Place you should also pay a visit to the wall of gum, which is located on the south side of the market right below the outside staircases. It's the most disgustingly awesome thing ever.
