Hey all, sorry if this is a smurf move, but I'm too sleepyeyed to read through this right now, and didn't want to forget. I was wondering if anyone could help me out with some info on Waka (like if there's any viable volunteering for free tickets, primarily post show work)...if anyone could help me out, PM or whatever, I'd appreciate it times a thousand. I haven't been able to find any info on the waka site/board regarding it. thanks allllll
I can help you out with that. You can sign up at www.workexchangeteam.com/ As long as you go ahead and sign up soon, you should have a good chance of getting post-fest. When you fill out the application, you'll be asked which days you can work. Just list the post-fest days and you should get what you want. I'll probably work either during or pre-fest myself, then post-fest at Roo. I've volunteered five times with Shimon Presents (the company that you'll be volunteering with) so if you have any more questions, PM me.

so is anyone doing summercamp-->waka----> Roo? im very much considering it but i dont know if my brain can handle it. Already got summercamp and the Roo tix. I guess my only Q is... how far is Manchester from the Mtn?????
I looked this up at one point. I think it is like 800+ miles from the mountain to Nashville. Then about 70 miles to Manchester. It should be around 900 miles. So depending on how fast you drive probably about 10 to 12 hours. The mountain is in west Arkansas and Manchester is east TN.
Well, Wakarusa is about two and half hours from Little Rock, and the Rock is about seven hours from the Farm. So, it would take just under 10 hours.
add in a stop in Memphis for Rendezvous's world famous ribs and a night of Beale Street Bar hopping if nothing good's at Hi-Tone followed by a stop at Grimeys a few drinks at Beer Sellar and a night in Nashville at 3rd and Lindsley and maybe a stop at Bourbon Street Blues and Boogie Bar in Printer's Alley and the days between Waka and Roo are filled.The Nash-natives are sure to have better suggestions though.
^ haha good info all around. thanks. I'll figure it all out one way or the other. All i know is what i've read and heard about Waka and I refuse to miss out again. The trusty Garmin will get me from point A to point B and then on to point C and eventually back again to point A. At least that's the plan for now.
So my fellow inforoosters...tell me more about Waka. The boy and I are considering Waka over Roo this year. Especially since that's SUCH a good price for the VIP package...
Any advice, suggestions, thoughts, etc etc?
My advice is GO! You will not regret the decision. This thread has a lot of info in it, but also go over to the waka forum. Tons of info over there, and quite frankly just a great group of individuals.

I have a ticket to this with a mainstage camping pass I need to sale.I really wanted to go,but can't now because of recent changes involving work.If anyone's interested in a ticket minus service charges let me know.
make sure to catch The Moai Broadcast this year. they won the Winter Classic out of Tulsa. I saw them at the Backwoods Stage last year and it was one of my favorite sets of the whole weekend. really laid back, jazzy electronica.

Mainstage will be totally worth it!!! Satellite camping COULD BE off site with shuttles to transport you. The $50 more between friends is nothing, and it will make the experience that much better. I would hate to have to leave the festie site to go to my camp....not cool.
