Alas, I must admit I am uneducated in the ways of Fuzz. I have seen the hype surrounding their 75 minute set and gave a couple songs a listen but, nothing I heard really stuck out to me, and I am ashamed to admit. Also, with their overlap of The Decemberists and Father John, I am going to have a tough decision to make. Fear not, for not all hope is lost, I keep an open mind and if I can be pointed in a direction that will show me the greatness that is Fuzz, mayhaps I'd be persuaded to adjust my 10.
Okay thanks for the info! I'm inclined to agree with you although a 9 hour difference between the two seems like a bit large of a discrepancy. Do you know if they stopped overnight on their way or drove straight through? Either way it looks like I'll be arriving Thursday night, just a little more exhausted than I intended.
I know they took shifts diving and didn't stop to sleep, but I assume they stopped a few times to eat, piss, etc.
I'll agree with the new guy that picking a favourite show is basically impossible. Some shows make me cry, some make me feel overwhelming joy, some are more... I guess 'spiritual'? It's really hard to compare the different kinds of feels they give me and pick a favourite.
Favourite festival I can do, favourite show I can't.
Do you also agree with his stance that "your" is an acceptable substitute for "You are"?

You do realize it's about a 24 hour drive from LA to Sasquatch?
Forgive me for I am but a lowly pleb and know nothing but, 24 hour drive? It's not that I don't believe you (I do) but Google maps says its a 17-18 hour drive. What do you think accounts for the 6 hour difference? Is that 24 hours driving time or 24 hours with sleep or California traffic? I ask because I am planning on driving from Vegas to the Gorge and am now concerned it may take me longer than I anticipate. I usually beat the Google maps estimated time when on a road trip and it says 15.5 hours for me. I'm planning on leaving Wednesday night with plans to get to the Gorge with daylight left on Thursday. Was hoping to make the trip with about 13 hours driving, should I reconsider my plans?
I live about 2 hours from the Gorge and people I know who have driven from here to Vegas have said it's about a 24 hour drive. I've never made the drive myself, but I would tend to believe people who actually have (i.e. them and Kymess) over Google maps.

If you're up front at the main stage from when the gates open, you'll miss great shows from Natalie Prass, S, Sharon Van Etten, Alvvays, Run the Jewels, and many more.
Yeah I know, it's definitely a sacrifice. I've already seen Run The Jewels and I'm hoping to catch Alvvays another time. There's just so many of my favorite bands on the stage that day (Courtney Barnett, Future Islands, Tame Impala, Kendrick Lamar) that I'd love to be close for.
As a general rule, hanging out at one stage all day is a bad idea. However, if there ever was a day that it would be acceptable to do so, it would be that Monday. If it wasn't for RTJ and The Districts, I could almost see myself doing the same thing.
In some of the pictures I feel like I might see a barrier or something in the middle of the crowd on the main stage. It looks like it might keep people further away from the stage, reserving the front few rows for a special group of something. Does something like this exist or is it fully possible for someone with a normal wristband to get to the front row?
The barrier exists, but it's just to keep too much pressure from building on people in the front. The barrier is open on both sides so anybody can walk in, but there are rare cases when security stops letting people into the front section because it's too full. If it's a big act and you want to be right up front, it's best to get up there early.
