Bonnarooooooo!
    #10436581 - 06/01/09 07:19 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I'm going this year.  I've never been to a festival before, and say what you will about Bonnaroo, I'm really looking forward it.  Me and my friends are bringing everything that you're supposed to and being organized about it, but I was wondering if you festival veterans had any advice to drop.  Ya know, something you wish you'd known before hand, or maybe just some suggestions for how to really do this thing right.  Whatever you have to say at all would be appreciated.  Sorry if there has already been a thread like this but I figure everybody will have different perspectives so another couldn't hurt.

Take your drugs while waiting in line if youre going to be taking any. Dont smoke weed until nightime unless you have 100% chill vibes all around you. Have your schedule of what stages you want to watch if there are multiple and time your bathroom breaks wisely  :ganja:

Drink plenty of water. Getting dehydrated can suck.
Bring TP.
If you are bringing anything into the festival ground in your car that you shouldn't, you should pack it first and pack it discreet.
No smoking pot on the way to the festival. It can wait for when you are in and set up.
Stay safe, stay smart, know your mind, know your chemical (if applicable), but most of all HAVE FUN!

Flashlight/battery lantern
A flag/balloon for campsite ID is good, but not necessary if somebody around you has something memorable.

I used to carry a Camelbak and when I went into Centeroo I would have the only compartment on the bag open and ready for them to look inside. Of course my chillum was in the pocket next to that (which they never noticed), and my buds in my back pocket, shoe, or hidden well in the bag. If you have your shit ready for them to look at you will get through a lot faster and easier with less chance of getting your shit confiscated.

FIXED.

EDIT:
Would have been better if he had said 4 flags with wolves on them.

I would really like to find out what it is all about.
Sadly, it will not be this year.

Do it big for me, homey.

I never had a problem with undercovers in the 4 years I went from 2004-2007. Never had a problem with anybody there, really, except for a couple sluts that were too drugged for their own good at Radiohead.

Festival staff checks you before you go into Centeroo. Depending on who you get searching you they might be cool and just checking for glass bottles/chairs/etc, but if you get an asshole they will pat you down, look inside cig boxes, check bags.

Two years in a row there was this cool guy supervising one of the Centeroo entrances and he was announcing "If you don't want us to take it, get creative and hide it well. We don't want to ruin your weekend we just need to do our job."

I'm sure you have a shade canopy, but if you don't make sure to get one.

Other than that bring extra chairs, toilet paper, a towel, and lots of cash. You will spend more money than you expect to so bring more cash than you think you'll need. Sunglasses and something to put over your head/neck is good too as this bonnaroo is going to be very hot. Hydrate very well in the mornings and don't drink too much before the sun goes down. Bring extra shoes (or at least flip flops) just in case of rain. Most importantly bring a smile because when you're at a festival there is absolutely no reason to have anything else.

Its all common sense stuff really but it happens. My first year I was strapped for cash and wasn't expecting the heat. Not being ready for that heat caused me to not hydrate well the first full day and that made the rest of the weekend harder.

Just be smart with it really. Listen to your body, if you think you need to rest then rest a little. There's nothing wrong with taking a quick nap near the stages.

I have a question bout undercovers at festivals, perhaps someone here knows something, perhaps not.  Do they usually pose as dealers and try to bust you buying or do they basically only bust dealers?  It SEEMS like they would be there more to bust the dealers, in which case I don't really have to worry about them, but IDK.

I can't wait for Rothbury!

Cool.  I'm so psyched.  I don't think I'm gonna go all out on drugs, maybe take some shrooms or acid once, maybe roll once, and just smoke the rest of the time.  And I'll get drunk as shit at Bruce Springsteen haha (he's all that's on during his time).
