Does the price of regular camping go up after this weekend? Does it ever sell out?
I bought my tickets for the concert already, but I'm weary of purchasing camping because there is still a slight chance I won't be able to make it down for the concert that weekend. I figure if I have to I'm sure I could sell my concert ticket, camping on the other hand might be a bit more difficult.

I think everytime someone uploads an avatar to this forum it becomes an option for people to use. Funny because if people use avatars on here, I generally don't look a their names. Thus I essentially thought bennnn was loyalfromlondon.

Awesome man! I've been youtubing a lot of the bands lately aswell (couldn't find Hoceky on my meager search). I'm currently listening to the first song and haven't had the chance to look through it too well yet. Is every band included? Was there a method to how many songs is band got, or is this simply a list of the songs that you enjoyed? Thanks again!

What are the advantages of buying through presale? I bought last year on opening weekend. I know if you buy then you save some money, do you save even more with presale, or just get the piece of mind that you have already purchased your tickets.
Also what is the difference between purchasing through Livenation and Ticketmaster? I am not really a fan of Ticketmaster. I deal with them all the time for other events. Does livenation also add in all the BS fees and such? Does Livenation offer the 3 day camping pass that ticketmaster does?

last year I brought down a lil' kiddie pool. It was a bitch to fill up there, and after a while the rain water and wind made the water really dirty. I soaped up and jumped in anyway. The next day I made the trek over to the showers. There was a line up, but wasn't too bad. One shower people were complaining about it being cold so no one would use it. This let me cut the line and use the cold shower. Same thing, soap up and quickly rinse off. In fact the cold water was welcome to my body which had been roasting in the sun all of the prior day.
One tip, which is what I do most of the time when I go camping is use baby wipes. Try to get the unscented ones.

Good suggestions . I've been debating with myself if I should show up early Friday or not. Last year I showed up at 12:05 friday night (saturday morning?). Since it was technically saturday, I saved myself the cost of an extra days camping.
I wouldn't want to show up any later though. My walk was fine. I would be happy with the exact same spot every year. The only down side is setting up in the dark...

I've been somewhat following this thread, so sorry if this has already been mentioned... What are the chances of Okkervil river making another appearance? Checking their website I can't access tour dates, but I know they have a new album coming out soon and are planning on doing festivals this year.

I have to admit Quartermass that this line-up even compared to last years kick some serious asses! I enjoyed your approach to the previous posted message stating your reasons for acts that your looking forward to. Not just attacking the lack of knowledge of the bands that the previous person had stated. But I guess that's just expected from the board mediator.
Why would anyone attack my message because I haven't heard of many of the acts? I think the way he replied should be expected of everyone, not just a board mediator. Anyways, I'll check out the acts and see what I think. If I like them, and I'm in Cgy at the time, then I look forward to seeing you both there!

I'm definitely down for sharing a camp ground. Right now there is 3 of us confirmed pilling in my car coming from Calgary AB. Could definitely meet up somewhere and cram more in... We already have the 3 day pass purchased, let me know if anyone is interested.
