a word of caution to those attending summer festivals
    #10113408 - 04/06/09 12:12 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

i decided to post this after having a conversation with one of my old tour buddies the other day. he reminded me of a situation that could have turned out really bad.

i think it was at one of the bonnarroos, its early in the morning, almost light out. my buddy (who's been selling dank nugs) and i (selling beans) were walking around centeroo. theres an area behind the tent thats kind of secluded from the rest of the area. we had gotten away from our crowd and found ourselves just kind of wandering alone.

these 3 guys are together and one starts talking (with a thick NY accent) to my buddy. i had seen these guys earlier( we had sold to them), but it didn't register at the time. another guy says (looking at me)"has anybody got any drugs? (turning to my friend) maybe a nug i can puff?" the other guy moves in kind of close to me and says "got any beans, man?" (after taking a couple dozen beans and an unknown amount of acid, i felt connected to this cosmic energy) feeling a very negative vibe, i say no man, i'm all out.

when i look up  i see about 10 guys, from out of nowhere, surround my buddy who is digging in his pockets for nugs. he tells me later that he too felt this overwhelming negative energy at the same time he's looking down digging in his pockets. at this time he sees a bunch of feet surrounding him. realizing whats about to go down, he says "damn, i'm outta bud. our buddies are in the tent and they've got some nugs. lets go smoke some blunts."

those other guys start talking amongst themselves, not ever saying "yeah, lets smoke some blunts" or something like that. if you asked someone to puff a nug with you, and they offered to blaze up you're whole group, you'd say hell yeah, right? not these guys.

while they're talking, we slip back around into the tent. we tell our friends, and everyone is on alert. a bit later, a couple of those guys follow us to our campsite. after seeing how many of us there were, they backed off (i guess).


the point of this post is to remind you guys that while there are a bunch of really cool and good-hearted people at these festivals, not all of them are there with good intentions.
always try and stay with your group. don't let people wander off from your group when its late as hell. keep an eye on each other.

have fun. be safe. use good judgement.

I've never had many crime problems at these festivals, but they are not unheard of. Most of the time the crime is of the simple drug use sort. :smile:

this is what i mean. there is a percentage of people that go to these festivals just to score drugs. some people go planning to rob people of their possessions.

if my friend and i hadn't been on our toes, and in tune with the cosmic energy, or vibes, or whatever, theres no telling how bad that situation could have gotten. maybe just beat up and robbed. maybe stabbed and robbed. theres no telling. we were in a secluded spot where we wouldn't have been heard or seen at all. it could've been bad.

Yep, you're right Moe. But one thing you also should stress is that at a festival atmosphere, if something like this happens in front of other people, most if not all would jump in to help you.

Thats the truth. Usually at a festival 90% of the people there will help you however they can. Its the strangest thing, but hey thats the culture I suppose.

the more "aware" people are of their surroundings (people and location), the less likely something bad will happen.

I've snuck in bonnaroo three years in a row.
It sucks though because its hard to get into centeroo unless you find someone leaving to give you their wristband.

Good advice though moe.phan :thumbup:
Be careful out there people.
There are good people at every fest... but there are SHADY MOTHERFUCKERS too.
Use your good judgment, a critical eye can usually tell peoples intentions. Look at body language, how they speak... the EYES.

I think this is sticky worthy for a hot minute.. fest season is upon us.

Thankfully for me i lived like 45 mins. away from the roo and knew people right down the road.

as for getting into centerroo i just throw my hands up and say NO GLASS! it usually works for me... i did have to jump the fence once to see les claypool
