    I would like to go for the Phish Radiohead Combo. Probably wont though. I went to the 1st three, and said I would never go again.

    I have been to the last four and said I'll never go again. But every yr I survive the five days I feel like I accomplished something. And of course the great times. But even in a rv it is rough. It's only a hr from here so I'll go. I will have to post some pictures. Crazy ass shit going down.

    Can you bring in your own food and booze or do you have to buy everything? I imagine that would get expensive.

    You can bring anything in to the campgrounds besides glass. There's lots of drinking, eating and tripping etc going on. Once you get into centeroo they go through your bags. You can't bring liquids, coolers. Your allowed a few bottled waters. So people fill them up with vodka. That said the food is really really good for being on a farm. The beer is super expensive. And we buy the VIP pass that adds to it. But it's just amazing. Everyone is so happy it rubs off on you. There are college kids in bikinis up to 70 yr olds still jamming out.everyone shares what they have. No crime or rape etc. All the deaths have been heat related.

    I can deal with the five days of camping, that is not really my issue. I just dont really like the direction the festival itself has gone since I stopped going in 04.

    Im sure its still fun, but Im not hip on the indie rock turn its taken. While I enjoy indie rock, I would rather not see a bunch of bands in that sort of setting. I miss the days when it was still the jamband, improvisational style.

    I saw Radiohead 2 weeks ago and Phish last week. Would have been nice to see them down at Bonnaroo. Did some of the Phish Fests years ago. Not sure i have the big festivals in me anymore. Seriously considering Mountain Jam next year. Need to alot my work time carefully to fit it in.

    I fucking hate radiohead.

    But I would really like to attend a multi-day festival like that sometime.
