Tickets go on sale next week??? WTF!!!! Who’s going to buy tickets to something 10 months away and we don’t even know who’s playing!!! Let alone if you’ll be alive. Tickets didn’t even sell out this year, so what’s the rush!

That is odd. And to save $50 ?? (per the email I got) I wish them the best. I spent $2,300 on tickets last month and was treated like a felon just trying to get in (4 times). And that place was at capacity, I can’t see them cramming any more people in and not keeping up with the needs of the crowd that did show up! (entrance, cash, potties, showers, etc) Music was the best but without Furthur its gonna be a tough sell unless Led Zeppelin reforms…

You are right, I really got into Trey, they made you feel like you were @ a festival :-)

Did the promoters ever formally explain and apologize for the complete sh1t$how about traffic, portojohns, ATMs, lack of water, and the utterly complete mismanagement? Seriously, it’s a bit of a smack in the face to ask us to buy tickets now – lineup unknown – when these other issues are still outstanding. They really do owe their fans an explanation. (But, yes, the music was stellar… and they had NOTHING to do with that at all).

Not to mention the $10 bags of ice and the ridiculous 10 minute per vehicle inspections. I won’t be coming back if I see one mention of “search” on the promotional jargon and I urge all to do the same…

Joshua Katt November 7, 2013, 00:54:14

PS, the traffic backups were all about the vehicle searches at the gates and the organizers refused to relent even when the local cops got pissed about the backups into the roads. I know because I was there when the sheriff got on the horn demanding to speak to supervisors about speeding it up when it first started. Had to put up with this BS 4 times since we left every night despite having VIP camping. Its going to have to be a monumental lineup for me to return this year.

I attended the festival as one of the worker bees when I ran into that mess of roadblocks on Rt.29. You had to drive 5 miles south before you could U-turn around. I simply asked a local where was the backway? Simply put I was in less than 15 minutes. Same as when I left. The “Officials” wanted everyone to follow like sheep so no one will sneak in a sixpack or two… Sell more $8.00 Beers!!!!!!! Music was great,once in a lifetime event. Will Return!

Negativity kills festivals people^^. All festivals have some issues the first year. Many festivals continue to have issues after the first year. The fact is they went big for their first year, and in the grand scheme of things, the pulled it off. The music was amazing, as were the people. The havoc getting in made for one of the most bonded and united festival crowds I have ever seen. I have a feeling year (2) will probably be the benchmark year for this festival (still young, but bugs worked out). Those that don’t go are gonna miss out. The rest of us are going to have one helluva festival. See you there. Until then, be good to one another.

I bought my Lockn’ ticket already for 2014 as well. I had such a blast at the first one that it seemed silly to wait until ticket prices went up when I already knew I was going to be heading back. I understand waiting to see who is on the lineup, but I already know the lineup will be killer just like last year, and it’s one less thing to worry about the sooner you buy the ticket.

I went Super ViP and there were many issues, and I think that a little discount for this year would be nice. CID did their best to make up for some of the issues.I think that while the promoters did an amazing job with the line up, but a poor job planning for a camping festival. Hopefully lessons were learned and things will go smoother this year. I have to say as far as music goes that was the best festival I have ever been to.. I loved the artists paying together. Furthur and ScI blew me away and got to see Trey for the first time. They were great and his smile was so infectious :)

“true cost of camping” equals we realized how much more cash we could have pumped out of these people.
GO F%&K yourself Lockn
