since I've done the festival thing. But I'd say it's different from going to a show; it's a more immersive scene. Hey, I'll never forget waking up outdoors in Veneta and wandering off to a big field to see the Dead (and a whole lot of cool vendors) in 1982. If that, and the random fleeting community, are not a big deal to you, maybe go with the shows, but if you want that thing you have to get at a fest...
OK, so I am relatively new to going to festivals. Don't get me wrong, they are a blast! But, they are also expensive. It's costing $270 just to get into Lockn this year. I wonder if it's better to just go to one or 2 festivals a year or take that money and spread it out to see a bunch of shows throughout the year?

I have been to Bottlerock and the Furthur Festival a few years ago. Going to Lockn' this year and hope it is my best festival!
post reports for those of us who can't go. The venue is my favorite ever.
Every year many of us(think there's almost 50 of us this year) make the pilgrimage from Canada and party our asses off in Oregon. Can't wait!!!!!!
I am going to Lock'n this year. I've gone to a few small festivals, but this will be my first major festival. Looking forward to it. Hopefully it will be my favorite one.
Sweet & kind festival right while colors are changing!
Every year I say I'm going to go to the Country Fair, and every year I don't make it. This year I know for sure I won't be able to, and now I'm REALLY bummed!
