Zhenya Old Songs Festival 2008 Who's Going? (147* d) RE: Old Songs 2008 Who's Going? 30 Jun 08

My friend and I had much better seats in the outside area before we moved inside. Frustrating, but I'm not sure how that could have been avoided without a long delay. If they had enough lead time, I guess they could announce the change as many places as possible, and say that people could start moving in at a certain time. At that point, maybe they could do the airplane thing and have people move their seats by rows. But it would take much longer, I think, and some people still wouldn't get the message in time. I don't know if there are a lot of people buying gate tickets for just the concerts, as opposed to people there all-festival or all day, but maybe if the weather forecast is bad, they could limit the amount of those extra tickets being sold to avoid going over capacity. But that's probably a fine line to gauge.

In terms of setting up the seats and not sitting in them all day well, I tend to use the seats as "base camp." A place to keep things I may need part of the day but don't need to carry around with me all day. Sometimes I end up sitting there during the day for a main stage performance, sometimes not. I've usually stayed in a motel, and not been the earliest riser, so if I don't get the greatest seat well, that's luck. Although I enjoy the big concerts, I actually like the smaller daytime workshops more, partly because they're usually less crowded and you can sit up close.
