When you say heavy duty earplugs do you mean the ones that are fitted to your ears? Those actually don't block sound as well as the foam ones. Earplugs have a rating in db which is the amount of sound they block. Find the ones with the highest number.
I'm lucky though, I can sleep in district 9 without plugs just fine.
Major Lazer closed the dance tent in 2011 and they play venues way smaller than what the Presets play. I saw the Presets at a 1000 person venue last fall, Major Lazer is playing a 500 person venue this month.
The Presets can headline a night in the tent, simple numbers.
Goddammit I actually just got back this morning. Problem is one of my very good friends is moving to England for a long time and her going away party is on Saturday. It's not downtown so I don't know if I can meet up with you guys after either.
But when do you get in? Come to the Squamish Festival lineup release party on Friday! I'll be at that one!
That's pretty amazing for $67. Iggy alone is worth it. Even though I like the Postal Service I still can't believe how high they are billed on festival lineups. I saw video from way back when and they did not look that great to watch. I hope they've stepped their game up.
That's awesome. Sometimes at work (I usually work outside) I play music from my car if no one has a radio going and every now and then someone I work with actually knows what I'm playing and we nerd out about music for a while. I always enjoy being the slightly more knowledgeable music nerd in a conversation because round these parts I'm like a 4th grader talking to a bunch of PhD students about quantum physics.
How can you take offense to something that you've never experienced?
Don't reply, I need not hear your unsubstantiated response.
Here it is anyway.
I visited fancy pants camping once when friends were in there. None of what it offered seemed to be of any value to me. Obviously there are people that like it, and good on them. I was providing an alternate point of view, which the OP didn't even seem to consider. I still answered the original question, even though I've never actually stayed there.
It isn't 'better' than regular camping according to most people on this site. It's quieter, you get more space, and you are slightly closer to the venue. You also get shuttle bus that takes you to the venue.
I've never done it, and I probably won't ever do it.
If they are actually doing this to keep the scalper market down, why not save all those tickets they release for face value and release a lot more of these scalped by livenation tickets for $500? Or even less? Why raise the price from $550 to $575 if they are actually trying to keep scalped tickets cheaper?
Tickets on Stubhub are now below $500, so charging $575 is not "holding the secondary market at bay", it's gouging desperate festival goers.
