Although the official policy is that you have to be in the car arriving at premier camping to get a premier wristband, I have heard tales of people who were able to get the gate folk to give them and extra wristband for a friend who wasn't in their car. I don't know what kind of story was used, and I'm sure most of it depends on the mood of the particular yellow shirt they're dealing with, but there is a little accounting leeway with the premier bands because they don't know ahead of time how many people will be in each vehicle. Basically, even if you don't get a premier pass, if your friends ask nicely enough and get lucky enough, they might be able to pull and extra band so you can at least go hang out with them, even if you can't park by them.
So get the attractive girls to go speak with the sleaziest looking guard? Got it
I believe you get a hard ticket, and that is good for a vehicle. The rules specify a number of people that can be in each vehicle, but I heard they don't always enforce that rule. Then everybody in the car gets a wristband.
Yeah, it says maximum 6 wristbands....but I didn't see anything about it having to be one car. That would certainly limit my purchasing options. Hmmmmmmmm
So in all my years, I have never done premier camping. Turns out the one year I don't do May, all my friends picked up some premier camping passes. When I went to get my passes last night, looks like no premier camping is available. Bummer.
So first question - how does the premier pass work? Is it a separate ticket or is attached to your wristband? Or something crazy I don't even know about yet?
Second - anyone selling premier, if this is possible? Or does anyone have room for myself plus one on their premier site? Of course I'll be willing to pay straight cash homey.
Well, I plug it all the time, but if you're in to electronic music then I highly recommend What The Festival in central Oregon. The lineup isn't released yet this year but it's been great the two years the festival has happened.
I've been waiting for that WTF lineup to drop, and now with Julysquatch out of the picture the chances of me going are better. I want to make it to Portland to visit some family this summer anyway.
I'm also reconsidering Paradiso, which would put me close to Seattle for Kraftwerk. Even though Paradiso day 2 headliners are a joke, I feel confident there will be something decent on the other stages like last year. A 2 hour set from Bassnectar on the Main Stage at the Gorge will probably be pretty fucking epic.
Yeah, with the cancellation we are looking at Paradiso too. I want to see the Gorge this year without having to see Dave God Damn Matthews.
Blues Traveller and Smash Mouth were probably my least favourite artists from the 90's, but fuck do I want to see Cracker, Third Eye Blind and Gin Blossoms. I was sure that Third Eye Blind was going to make the cut at Sasquatch, guess I was wrong.
Yes Womp, Ed Kowalcyck is the lead singer of Live and his solo material is drivel. Kind of sinilar to the shit Live released near the end of their career.
Setlist checks out, almost all Live stuff.
True story: I walked by Smash Mouth doing a free concert at Universal Studios and the fat guy from N'Sync and My Big Fat Greek Wedding came out and they did "Jump Around". It was amazing.
I mean just look at that thing. Wow. What a beauty.
My 90's boner is just pulsating right now. Who knew that Blues Traveler, Smash Mouth, Gin Blossoms, Third Eye Blind and The Spin Doctors are still out there doing their thing? And isn't Ed Kowalcyck the singer from Live? Incredible.
