I stayed in Premier camping last year and it was not quieter (at least not where I was anyways). Bring an mp3 player, that worked for me.
Well, dang. I was all set to be committed to premier camping and then I see this. Can anybody else corroborate? I know the premier camping is fenced off from the rest of the campground, but if the loud masses are just on the other side of a simple wooden fence, then that probably helps little.
I know I've seen others here say that premier camping was more of families, and those there just for the music, which is what I'm looking for, but hopefully that also implies it's quieter, too.
OK, I'm leaning toward keeping my premiere pass, then. I'd still love to hear from somebody who has stayed at both, but if premiere is sleepable, combined with the early access to the grounds, I think it's the better deal.
Well, after all your warnings, I ended up buying a premiere pass for face value off of a kind soul via Craigslist.
Quick question about Wildhorse, since I still have an e-mail out about buying one of those passes: Can you come Friday night there, or is it Sat-Tuesday morning only? And is it quieter enough from premiere camping to make it worth the effort to re-sell my premiere camping pass and all that, or is Wildhorse and Premiere about the same in terms of quietness?

New question, as per below: Which would be the quieter, more relaxed campsite to sleep at: Sasquatch Premium, or Wild Horse? Is the Sasquatch Premium early admission worth much when weighing the two?
So this is my first time going to Sasquatch, and I'm getting a little worried. I'm a bit beyond my whole youthful college party years and honestly, after I get back from 12 hours of seeing dozens of bands, all I'm probably going to want to do is get some shut eye to prepare me to do it again the next day. However, I'm seeing all these people here talking about bringing freakin' bullhorns for chanting at night, and giant car stereo systems, and basically a giant party right where I supposed to be sleeping.
So, Sasquatch veterans, what is my best hope for getting some peace and quiet at night? I'm already bringing earplugs, and I'm going to try to score some Ambien or, at the least, pick up some TylenolPM (though neither really works all that well for me.) What else can I do? Is there an area in the camping area that's quieter than the rest? One for people who want to sleep?
I know that premium camping is supposed to be the quietest and most laid-back, but it's a bit late for that now. I also hear Friday is the worst night for all of this, but unfortunately, since I'm flying in Friday and don't want to pay for a hotel in Seattle if I have a free camping spot waiting, I have to be there Friday night.
What's a light-sleeper to do?

We're yet another couple of people looking for a ride from the Seattle airport to Sasquatch. Our plane gets in at 1PM on Friday (though, if need be, we could probably bunk in Seattle until Saturday morning if that's when people are going,) and we hope to leave Tuesday.
We're two friendly, laid-back post-college kids who are trying to sort out all these logistics quickly, without being stuck paying $300 for a rental car. We'd, of course, kick in for gas and such.
Failing that, our worst-case scenario is to pay the $300 for a car. If somebody would want to split the costs and carpool with us, that would be peachy as well. The cost would be ~$70 if we had four people in the compact car, ~$56 if we squished in a 5th person in the back middle seat.
I'm also open to other idea for getting there. I've yet to find a bus or shuttle running back (which seems lame for a venue so far from civilization.)
My friend and I could also use a carpool from Seattle (specifically the airport) to Sasquatch. Our flight gets in at around 1PM Friday and we'll, of course, help out with gas and all that. We're two friendly, laid-back and normal post-college students flying in from San Diego.
ritualdejess, I sent a Facebook message to the only Jesse Fulton it showed as belonging to the LA network, which is hopefully you, but if not you can reach me at my firstname.lastname@example.org (I have to use that address to keep spam-bots away from me.)
