I think if you get there first you get the best available parking spot. Less random. We ended up at the base of the western cell tower, far as shiz. I also think that instead of paying $800 for a white tent, how about $400 for an empty piece of land close to c.roo, creating a semi VIP, or a KIP (kind of) tent only situation. Lastly, how about the group camping requirement be cut from 20 people to 10. Also, more jeff the brotherhood, less flowers and jam bands.
A major improvement would be to not invite anybody like R. Kelly, Wu Tang, NAS, Boyz Noise. Those artists DESTROYED the Bonnaroo experience this year. Hordes of "bros" and dumb pieces of shiz attended the festival this year. What normally feels like a fun, good energy community was ruined. Last year the bathrooms were "clean", people were respectful, the fence was spray painted artistically, and there was pretty much NO trash on the ground.
This year the fence was covered in ghetto looking graffiti, people were very rude, and the type of people those artists brought really ruined the whole vibe/experience.
Trying to sit there and listen to Billy Idol (who was stuck in the smallest stage) tons and tons of bros walked by on their way to R Kelly and just kept dropping trash where I was sitting. Seriously every couple people who walked by would just drop a cup, bottle, or something on the ground. The people that listen to these shiz artists had NO respect for other people or the festival. They really trashed the place.
AGREED with the person who said "more craft beers." Also the water station at the What Stage needs to be filtered more effectively. The sulfur water and the people drinking it smelled like rotten eggs.
"When music affects us to tears, seemingly causeless, we weep not... from excess of pleasure; but through excess of an impatient, petulant sorrow that, as mere mortals, we are as yet in no condition to banquet upon those supernal ecstasies of which the music affords us merely a suggestive and indefinite glimpse."
As someone who enjoys craft beer, I disagree with the coors light only suggestion. Sorry, if I want water with a 3% alcohol added, I'll just add vodka to my camelback.
The sound at which isn't to loud, it's misdirected. You can't hear crap at the stage. Hell, llast year I heard the xx better at my tent then at the stage. I agree with axing the screen on which.
I like the tents on Thursday. Saw 21 pilots last year and they were awesome on Thurs.
Hahahaha. This serious response is incredible!
Didn't I see a Post of the Day thread somewhere???
If the poster I was referring to was being sarcastic, my apologies.
I heard several people last year suggest that the beer tent be axed and offer only bud, miller, and coors as a beer option. I take my beer serious, as I don't drink the cheap crap anymore. I assumed they were being serious.
