1. There will be too many people, everywhere.
At the gates, at the food counters, at the campsites, in the line for the port-a-loo, at the bar, at every single artist performance you want to check out. There will be a sea of people around you, in every direction at all times, be prepared to be shoved here and there from time to time; believe people when they say, “Sorry. My Bad.”
2. There will be too many shirtless sweaty people.
Regardless of whether or not they have the body to show off, they will let go of their shirts, and they will sweat. As will you, so don’t forget to pack those wet wipes!
3. There will be too many people drunk or high.
They will provide entertainment when there is none. Try not to be those people though, or do, if you can live with the chronicles of your drunk self immortalized forever on the internet.
4. Your phone will die on you.
Yes it will. The world and its mother knows it. Instead of denying it, how about investing in a solar charged power bank? Or resign to your fate of being lost in a sea of people with no way to reach your friends; on the upside, you’ll have a great time and possibly make new friends!
5. There will be disappointments, but all in all, it will be awesome.
Sure a set may get delayed, or worse, cancelled, or the band won’t sound as great as they did on your studio album tracks, but you will have fun, and you will look forward to going for the same festival again, or going for other festivals.
