Buy from Bonnaroo.com, don't support the secondary market if you don't have to. I only advise the use of options like that when an event is sold out and you don't really have any other way of getting a ticket.
So, I was on Reddit yesterday and stumbled upon a thread under r/bonnaroo where people were selling their wristbands. My question is, how legit is this? And does it matter if someone else bought it and you use it to get in? Also, in the thread they mention stubhub has tons of wristbands for sell, so is this normal? My bonnaroo friends think it's a bad idea to buy from anyone else besides the official website, but what do you think?
not DIY but maybe cheaper than a bottle of Coconut oil at Trader Joe's.
No, it's not cheaper. The jar of coconut oil at TJ is only like $5 and it will last forever. I opened a new jar this weekend and kept both my kids covered by redoing their sunscreen every couple of hours and maybe use 2 Tbsp of it. One of those jars could last a person all summer long easily.
Hey, moisturizing and vitamin D benefits aside, when I researched the SPF rating of coconut oil I found that it only runs between 5 and 10. I'm an SPF 50 kind of guy...any tips on a homebrewed sunscreen with a higher SPF?

Its about time for panic mode but I realized over the years that all I need is in the corner of my room. Ill just toss mas ammounts of undies and socks in my bag and im set. Ill get the rest of what i need at Walmart in Manchester so much easier to pack lite.
Got a list of accoutrements to be purchased, that's about it. I have over-planned in the past, and started gathering my stuff too early, so I'm taking the relaxed approach this year. I'll start getting my act together the weekend before the fest.
Hi everyone! so excited to meet you all (especially all my during-show volunteers!)
Name: Yulia Age: 22 What my user name represents/means: my entire family (except me) has been to burning man so to me, festivals always need pseudonyms. I picked Yoshi cause they're pretty wonderful and they start with the same letter as my actual name! From: Originally New Jersey, but I just graduated from Tufts up near Boston. Favorite Bands: I'm a big fan of the folksy bunch, Mumford and Sons, Of Monsters and Men, etc, as well as movie scores (the hours score is incredible) My All-Time Favorite Artist: oh god. uhhh... Favorite Books: 1984, George Orwell Favorite Movies: Secondhand Lions and Chocolat Favorite TV shows: Doctor Who, West Wing, Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, Newsroom First Concert Attended: Zootopia when I was 12 with my Dad, we saw Bon Jovi, it was great. Last Concert Attended: ...zootopia when I was 12 with my Dad... (in my defense, I've seen a lot of people through my school, but they weren't really CONCERTS per se) Bonnaroos Attended: this'll be my first!
7pm? That's cute. I've sat in stand-still traffic there until 9pm (I lived there for five years and literally CRIED sitting in traffic on a daily basis, sorry for the bitter sarcasm). It is an UNGODLY NIGHTMARE. They had night-time construction and our friends from Maine literally did not move from one spot for over three hours. That was at one in the morning. I suggest taking 76 over to Harrisburg or 70 over to Hagerstown. It only adds a couple of miles to your trip, but it will literally save you hours unless you plan on driving through DC at three in the morning. F*cking horrible city.
Huh, that's terrible. I've lived here most of my life and never had any experiences like that. I completely LOVE it here, but you know, makes the world go round and all that crap.
Really? Are you in DC proper or out in VA or MD? I was in VA and I worked in MD. Trying to get across the American Legion Bridge was awful. They were doing that construction on the Silver Line, so that slowed down traffic on the VA side. And if there was any kind of accident (which there usually was), traffic came to a stand-still across the bridge, all the way up to where 270 hit the beltway. I left work two hours early (2pm) to get to class at George Mason and got stuck there at the bridge. I sat in one place for three hours and didn't move. I ended up being late for class at four by over an hour. That was a pretty regular occurrence for me. I finally just started taking the beltway going the other way around the city. It added 30 miles each way, but ended up being faster most of the time.
There was another time I had food poisoning and I was in traffic on 495 by Alexandria. We were in the left lane and I kept telling my husband to pull over because I was going to be sick, but traffic was so bad, even at 11pm, that he couldn't get over. I ended up getting sick out the window and it got all over the car behind us. So yeah, if you're a BMW driver that got vomit all over his windshield, sorry about that.
Oh, and we got pounded during that Snowmageddon snowstorm. We heard the snow was going to be there at midnight, so we left for Florida at seven to miss the bad weather. We were stuck on I-95 south for so long that six inches of snow managed to fall while we were waiting. We literally plowed through it in a lowered Audi A4. At least we had all-wheel drive! Believe me, I spent more time IN traffic in that city than OUT of it!
And clearly you aren't a rapist (I hope) but the way you pop into any thread where a woman happens to be lamenting her lack of ride to Bonnaroo and tell them to come hop on your bus sounds extremely rapey.

higgybear22 I guess I find the Purity Ring / Forecastle Incident conflict to be a little surprising. Also, I thought they would try and put AnCo at night..but there are pretty limited options. Avett Bro's are a weaker headliner IMO, I would of liked to see forecastle incident or Purity Ring overlap with them a little more.
We've been to every Hangout and each year it gets better from a logistics standpoint. Bathrooms have never been an issue. Like above I didn't get some of the "line" at portos when there were several open. Lines for food and drinks always manageable. More water stations this year too. Year #2 was the most difficult to navigate as the crowd was huge and Fest wasn't using the street like it did this year or last year. The line-up this year going in was my least favorite and we ended up loving it. Saw so many good performances. I think not having so many "must-sees" was a good thing. We split several sets and really enjoyed many. Highlights: Stevie Wonder, Mowglis, The Shins, Trey, KOL, The Weeks, Public Enemy, Black Crowes, KOL, Imagine Dragons, Shovels and Rope. Only a couple of disappointments: Ellie Goulding, YYY and Petty. Another great year. Camping at Gulf State Park and shuttle is how we've gone every year and we'll be back in 2014. Bought tickets at fest $169 no fees for next year. We've never done VIP but only Hangout stage has better viewing anyway, just don't see the value in the VIP for $530 extra for each ticket.
