the site looks like theyre pretty strict there. whats it like? am i going to have a hassle getting onto lot without a ticket?
The easy part is getting in - the hard part is getting out of the lot - it took us like 2 hours to get out after a Dylan show a few years ago
Getting out is an absolute nightmare. I'll never go back for a show. Santana show last summer was great, venue is reaaly beautiful but getting out took over 2 hours.
Bethel = skip the encore and book to your car.
you got that right Grady!! Seeing how the show this year is Saturday night, you won't be missing much.........
Bethel Woods was great for the Phish shows this past weekend. Lot scene had a police presence but they were very visible, friendly, and the Shakedown was pretty happening (I only went on Sunday so I cannot speak for the other 2 nights)Inside was totally relaxed as far as security went and the ushers I encountered were more than friendly. As far as traffic goes, yeah it is a nightmare getting out, so either high tail it at encore or just relax at your car for a couple of hours and then you'll be fine. I like to sometimnes take a short nap before driving home after a show anyways. If you can't take the crowds, stay home on the couch!
Truly - I never try to leave right after a show. Why sit in your car for two hours inching through bumper to bumper traffic? Better to sit BY your car for a couple hours drinkin' a cold one or two and having a snack or a nap.
what about vending there?
this belongs in the venue talk folder
i've never seen problems for vendors there...and never a problem for not having a ticket upon arrival..bought several at the box office before after being there
really looking forward to seeing furthur there
