The festival has grown from diapers to blue jeans and boots. Congratulations.
2012 is such a different experience from past years. So much ran smoothier
and easier, so consequently it was a more enjoyable experience.
The attention to detail and the organized skilll of moving and handling such a massive amount of people both from the road, through the camping lots, to the festival was amply evident.
Showers had shorter lines, the standing area, in the festival, allowed those who wanted to be up close an personal to do so ,those who wanted to or had to sit - do so without being shoved about. The ADA access was exceptional and representatives went through the area to see it there was anything needed. Numbers were placed on certain RVs so should people needing assistance would be easily found by street number and rv number- and not just in the ADA section.
The security personal were polite and seemed more professional than in the past , and for the most part the representatives and ancillary workers employed by Goldenvoice seemed to be more aware and informed of what was going on or what to do , and if they didn't have the answers they found someone who did.
Still mistakes, sure, but the festival has made it through infancy and the terrible twos and I would even venture to say even puberty.
Thank You Goldenvoice.
