At festivals, not showering does not equal not clean.
I went through 4 Roos and many, many festivals without a shower. Last year was the first Roo I showered at and that was only because I was in VIP. I will probably shower this year because I'll be in RV. Otherwise, showering at festivals is not high on my agenda.
In five 'Roos I have never: ridden the ferris wheel (and have no plans to, scared as hell of heights), showered, been in the pit, been in the fountain (also not gonna happen), and I'm sure there's more. I do need to find time to get back to the Silent Disco this year!
have never: -been on ferris wheel -seen the sun rise on purpose - FU Kanye -been able to see every band I want to -slept overnight in centeroo -never eaten less than 4 dollar grill cheese a day -never had a bad time
I must disagree. But I will say it depends on the performer and probably the day as well.
Thursday seems like a good time to hit the Comedy Theatre from what I've heard. Usually not much of a line fer anyone. But over the years I've really enjoyed catchin' bands on Thursday. The up and comers.
Conan obviously was a disaster in 2010. But back in '07 my buddy Cheyenne and I got in line to catch Flight Of The Conchords, waited fer maybe 30-40 minutes with the line barely movin' before leavin'. Tried to catch the 420 Comedy thing on Friday, got there too late, but ended up just buyin' tickets off some dudes in line with Jury.
So long post turnin' short: lines fer the Comedy Theatre can be short to extremely long and thus gettin' tickets fer a show can take no time to an hour or more.
This year will be my fifth Roo. I only poo'ed on the farm once, on Monday morning before we left. I'm not grossed out by it... I eat a lot while there... my body just knows I'm at Roo and don't want to be bothered.
Also, the only two sites I haven't seen are the Silent Disco (love to watch, have never gone by when the line was short) and Ferris Wheel (not paying for that)
