On Thursday evening, I asked those who have visited festivals for advice because I have never attended a music festival. Many of you are in the same boat, so at the end of the post I asked for any questions you might have if you have never been.
These are the questions I received…
I am going to Lollapalooza this year basically for the sole purpose of seeing The Strokes live. I want to enjoy the whole festival, but I want to make sure that I see The Strokes up close. How soon before they play do I have to be to their stage? Any other advice?
Well like you, i will be losing my “F-Card” when i attend Lollapaooza, and one question that i would really like to be answered is how can i enjoy the festival’s food, while still being able to stay in the front row when The Strokes perform.
(I have the same question in terms of going to the bathroom.)
The only question that popped into my head at the moment was about being in the front row- is it scary, do you risk injury, or is it totally worth it?
I guess my main question is, would it be stupid of me to just worry about being up front for the Strokes? Would that defeat the purpose of a festival, going around and scoping new bands? Or is it possible that I could go around and check out other bands and still manage to get a good spot for the Strokes?
Are earplugs, which Ezra from Vampire Weekend says are necessary, needed?
Most of these will be answered in the upcoming days when I roll out the answers to the five different questions. I plan on doing one-per-day with all of your responses. So if you would like to contribute, answer the five questions and send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, everyone.
