Misters with fans would also be fantastic!
Glenn – designated walkways to the bathrooms would be GREAT, especially if they installed boards to walk on. Unfortunately, I see people abusing this. How would you "police" it? You get a bathroom key Not sure how to handle it, but it is a good suggestion.
*Please install zip lines you can pay for to hurl you from the bathrooms near the beach-side by the Hangout and Chevy stages to the front gate / boardwalk area!! Ski lifts of some sort would work too. That is a miserable walk after the last show after dredging in the sand all day. I would easily pay 10-20 bucks to zip up to the front gate!
***More than anything – PLEASE continue to improve the transportation out of the festival at night.
PLEASE have fleets of cabs waiting for us to skip the 2 hour shuttle line if we choose to pay for a cab and not take our already paid for shuttle. Make it more Disney-like – they have great transportation services to move people to and from QUICKLY. We missed a paid for after hours show due to the wait!
PLEASE do not allow empty buses to go through without filling if their "line" does not have any travelers. FILL ALL BUSES and REROUTE them to the busy lines.
Overall, our group enjoyed the festival beyond belief. Thanks for all of the improvements you all made from the previous years. I hope to see some of our suggestions incorporated into next year's festival!!]]>
I also saw a crew cleaning the bathrooms by the ferris wheel. The pump truck created a terrible smell, but it's a necessary evil. I was just thankful to be attending the festival rather than working their job. Appreciate it though!]]>
ended up using the toilets with actual plumbing at the hangout restaurant but the lines for those were really long.
port-o-potties say only 10 persons per day, so they need to be cleaned by the staff a little more frequently. I know festivals have uncomfortable bathroom situations in general but i rate these to be pretty poor only because for the small size of the crowd the toilets could have been a lot cleaner.
I seriously tried my best not to eat or drink to avoid the toilets. ultra music festival had crowds way bigger than hangout and managed to keep the toilets a lot cleaner.
this might deter me from attending next year.]]>
I think it would be cool while if there was no one playing at a stage the video feed from other stages played and possibly some audio. So, the people waiting for the next band to come on have some entertainment. Similar to the live feed on the website, but on the screens (maybe on a loop).
After all, we're paying for the whole weekend's worth of bands, right? It's hard to pick who you want to see with scheduling, etc.
Also, it would be really neat if sprinklers were somehow set up around the audience area. Maybe just a timed, light sprinkle, but it would feel really nice when the sun gets so hot! That way people won't have to waste their drinking water or lose their spot in line to go cool off in the shade somewhere. :)]]>
A small suggestion of mine... can we ban flags please? And random things mounted on polls? Almost every show there were people with a flag waving around obstructing the view.]]>
The confusion with the golf cart ride drop off at the Main stage was an issue only because the worker was really really rude to us when it obviously wasn't our fault that we were brought there by the cart.]]>
