dang, I really hope that MOFRO is playing the kickoff party of Wednesday. That would be sweeeeeet!


From Wanee FB "Just wanted to be clear on this as we have seen a bunch of questions / concern...there absolutely WILL be a Wanee Kick Off Party with live music on Wednesday night (April 18). Just like in years past, your general admission 3 day ticket will also give you access to the Wanee Kick Off Party. Camping on that night Wednesday night will be an additional fee.

The official start time for the Kick Off Party and the bands performing will be announced soon, but expect some local favorites"

Totally agree, and though I always look forward to it, this might possibly be the best ever. I am going out of my mind and can't wait to see everyone there. If you've never been do yourself a favor and make this one.

Hey boyz and girlz...

Ok, you are on the right track....I've been to a few festivals, and yes the Furthur Fest was an awesome festival and that counts brother Here's the skinny for those of you planning on getting there early.

We just heard from the Suwanee director and yes they are going to have a Pre-Show as they do every year, they don't actually announce it per say. Wednesday is usually the day where everyone who wants to get there early does. Try to keep this on the down low, not to be exclusive, but because it makes it a more enjoyable experience for all of us. OF COURSE, tell all your friends and the people on this site, but just don't go announcing that EVERY year they have a wonderful "Early Bird" experience for all of us. It's kind of like how they say" every year", that Bikes aren't allowed, yet they are more abundant than the Spanish moss. Basically, it's in your best interest to get there early. If you are not going to get a "reserved" RV type campsite, then head closest to the Mushroom Stage as possible in the general camping area. If you get there early enough it's a piece of cake and we've used tarps, tape, and String to rope off trees, etc.! Then let the kind folks, sisters and brothers of this site camp together. It's really not super crowded if you get there early.

Now, as far as family goes, it would be really cool if we ALL camped around each other to create the best vibe as possible and also to weed out the wookies if you know what I mean. We need to create a family area. Throw some ideas my way and I'll try to help. Here's a specific Google Map of the park labeled. The best spots to rope off and get a group area going are in between the Mushroom Stage, Rees Lake, and the Pine Field.

maps.google.com/maps/ms?msid=20477669488...pn=0.004674,0.010568

I should be getting there on Tuesday, and should be able to help if needed.

I also like the idea of using the Fan Connect of this site...as long as it's True Family and not the rift raft (sorry, I don't frequent the Furthur Site as much as others so I just don't know how that works)

Love is Real Not Fade Away,
~Critter

P.S. I will tell you that the Wanee Brothers and Sisters are amazing people and they will help us deadheads out if we need it. Make sure to ask me or PM me with any questions or the such and I will get your question answered by the source if needed.

THANKS Canyon,
I am making the trek from NYC after the Beacon Run! Dusting off my GPS


we are too! from NC originally so we'll fly back to Charlotte & drive straight down on the 19th. So stoked.

Also it'll be interesting to see Furthur Beacon vs Furthur Wanee. Catching 2 of each - last 4 of the tour. The dynamic should be great and some things I miss at the first 6 Beacon shows will be replayed at Wanee.

Oh and I forgot to add, camping the night before is like $20 bucks for your group, depending on how close you get with the security.

heynowdeadheadbrothersandsisters, wowowowowo, Wanee is calling! But does anyone know if the 10 am time on Friday

is eastern or central time? Saw the two together at the Gorge in like 09 or so?? Actually they shoudl have been the

headliner, as they were the tighter and more cohesive of the night....just always cheering for Phil and Bobby, but

man, Greg can still kick it on dowwwwn. First ABB show in probably 85...first show with Warren in like 90? It was the first

show of the tour and started in St.Louis. Ohtheyfuckinrocked!! Florida is their home-State. Put in your plugs...GD

Florida is in the Eastern time zone. Is it true that Furthur will perform before ABB? I pictured them taking turns headlining.

Has anyone been to the Wednesday night kick off party before? I am wondering if it's worth adding another night to the trip. I have found a cheap flight from St. Croix to Orlando but it arrives at 8:30 pm so I would have to fly on Tuesday in order to catch the kick off party.
