Chicago 95 had the biggest shakedown, lot party I've ever seen. Shakedowns were everywhere, and so was the party. Huge. Camping on a nearby lot, McCormack Place.

Eugene 93 was excellent too. Camping at the stadium is the best.


you are so right! that was actually my first show/experience. the lot was insane. so much that i pretty much melted into the lot itself! it was something to see. definitely not like it nowadays.

Accoss the street from the Spectrum in Philly in the park 88,89. Yum Yum Man, Daily Dosses, The Family Tee-Pee and drum circle........Camping and vending along the asphalt path (both side) gave it a carnival midway feel.

RFK (insane) ....... $25.00 bucks for multi night runs. Funk Bus,fatty french bread, killer stir fry guy,drum circle under bridge for three days straight, tunnel before and after show, two for one and one for five, vegetarian lasangna people, national guard showers, ice delivery, etc etc etc etc all make this place above the rest. Many more great places, however never quite as centralized or organized for 3-4 days. Midwest/East Coast Honorable Mention : Albany,Deercreek,World amp in 90, Rich, U-Conn, Buckeye Lake.

Gathering of the vibes in ct has excellent vending for clothing - tie dies and the likes plus plenty of accessories. That's where I'll be doing my summer shopping. Enjoy the upcoming tour folks. I can hardly wait!
