    You really think it will be that low?

    I stumbled across set times the other day and got excited before realizing it was 2021. Really hoping for set times this week.

    That’s the rumblings. Folks saying it’s lower sales than 2016.

    2016 was the best with only 60k. You could walk into the pit for some of the big shows. Easy to get around. I loved it.

    Working a new beer tent on Thursday 2-6p and will be on VIP Hill the rest of the weekend Noon-4:30p

    Tex , I may need to crash at your camp Thursday or every night.

    I may sleep in a random spot in Centeroo Thursday just for Nashville Knight .

    I'm full on packing light as fuck. I don't care where I sleep. I will have to leave every morning to go get my wristbands. Haven't had to do that since 2015. But it will be chill. Maybe an hour each morning.

    Im refreshing hard for this schedule. It's hit me hard that we are about to do the damn thing for the first time in a long time.

    For the first time in many many years, I didn't latch on to something new or undiscovered by me from the lineup. Last year would have been my most diverse ever in having wanting to see bottom acts.

    That resulted in listening to less music to build up. But I'm ready for a go with the flow year. The two people going with me and working with me won't hold me back. If we separate, no worries.

    The plan is to pitch a tent somewhere in VIP like we did in 2019. But we won't have a VIP wristband for Thursday. Thinking this out as I type, I may double back to the high school Thursday at 6pm after our shift to get the Friday credentials. :idk:

    Sleep on my air couch somewhere.

    I bet if you scalped decently, you could get a wristband for $200 ish. Youve spent more for an hour and half set to see Turnpike. Then you get a Paul Cauthen opener. Come back Saturday to see Billy Strings and Tool.

    Do it

    I honestly think it is an underwhelming lineup. I think last years EDM artist lineup was way better. I’m only going for Illenium and Said The Sky.

    Is there a potential of canceling? I know a few other festivals canceled like Spring Awakening.

    Travel costs have exploded this year. Could that be a reason for low ticket sales?

    Ya I think it’s a combo of shitty lineup and costs going up. I don't think they can or will cancel but who knows. We are now less than a month away.

    They know ticket sales are down yet are doing nothing. Not adding any big names. Barely advertising it seems. Social media has just put out a few old pics and vid’s. Nothing really to drive excitement. Seems like they are on autopilot hoping Covid or a act of god doesn’t cancel it all again.

    I’ll still be there. Seems like we won’t have to wait in any lines and be able to get in the pits for headliners.

    They usually do one day tickets but it seems so close to the fest date. Might be able to find a dirt cheap 3 day ticket the way things are going.

    fairly certain the only one-day they’ve sold in the past was Saturday only and you had to take the shuttle from Nashville? Could have that wrong though.

    But at those attendance numbers you’ll be able to snag a weekend pass from the dude at the gas station on Friday for < $200 if I had to guess.

    I feel like a fool getting one for $220 now. I bet at the Roo Walmart they go for $100-$150.

    This would be the year to come for a day or two if camping for 4-5 days in a field with a bunch of people like me isn't your cup of tea. Cheap ticket market and half capacity. 2016 was like that and it was fun. Close views every show. Plenty of space everywhere, bathroom, porta, food, etc.

    They will have a small general lot over somewhere by Home Depot. You can take a shuttle bus from there to a side entrance at the main stage. Those shuttles are constantly running 24/7. That's what I do.
