Took the reviews down, huh?
Just curious, is the plan to have next years festival at the same place? We had a great experience and are hoping you won’t be any further away from us than the Charlotte area... unless you want to come to Raleigh! 😃 Of course, even if it is further away, I’ll probably still be 1st in line for tickets! 😂
Amazing day!!!
Does anyone remember what brewery brewed the Brown Sugar beer and what its name was? It was so good, I want to find it again.
Does anyone have the set list for Collective Soul?
Which brewery had the hazy ipa?
I think I'm one of the few who actually had a pretty good time. I sprung for vip and arrived at 11:30 by Uber, so no issues with traffic, waiting in line to get in, or parking. The bar in the vip area was great, so was the bathroom. Having pit access was awesome. As the day went on, I could really feel for the GA folks waiting in line for drinks, there's no way in hell I would have done that. The food lines were also ridiculous, I did not partake in any BBQ - which is a bummer because I came from Denver for this and was really looking forward to the Carolina BBQ. The bottleneck situation funneling in and out of the pit was also ridiculous and dangerous. I was hearing so much about how horrible traffic was on the way in that I chose to leave before Collective Soul went on, since I had an early flight out the next morning - that was a huge bummer. But for me overall, not horrible. Definitely not my best festival experience and I hope to see this festival rectify the issues and be a success in the future. That line up was stellar.
So many complaints....but another day...Lifehouse was so f**king amazing...I can't tell you. Enough said. Better next year..yes? Can't wait!
Not here to hate, just to offer some constructive criticism, and suggestions for future shows. First off, let me start by saying I was not here for the beer, so the beer running out meant nothing to me, but being that it was kinda a beer festival, better to have to much than not enough. The food was good, what we ate anyways, not sure about it running out, because we ate before that, but my suggestion on the food aspect is that you should have more vendors, which I'm sure will come with time. More vendors and more selection gives guest more options, and less lines. Just a thought. Also you should allow your food vendors to at least sell water. A two hour wait for a bottle of water is a bit ridiculous. Just saying. Or better yet, set up more than one location for drinks, (here in Georgia at our concerts, we have vendors walking around with coolers of beer and waters, which takes alot of stress off of the lines, patrons and vendors) That brings me on to the drink aspect. More than one spot for drinks (other than vip & the "craft corral") and how about a separate line for people not getting alcoholic beverages, or allowing the food vendors to sell non alcoholic beverages. Now onto the music, you had great bands that basically sold the festival for you. The downside is that they sounded like crap unless you were getting food, or in your car 😂 we actually listened to Lifehouse and collective soul from our car, and they sounded way better from there. Not sure if the sound is artist error or just the outside set up in general, but I'm assuming it was the venue, because they all sounded pretty bad sitting there listening, and haven't sounded that bad at other venues I have seen them play out. But hey, it's your first year, learning experience! Security coming into the venue was a joke, but hey, thank God nothing bad happened. Just saying, front gate security could use some help. Now onto my two biggest issues, parking and kids. I'll start with kids first. I'm a kid person and have my own little monster. She actually loves going to concerts and festivals, and was heartbroken that this was originally a 21+ event, and stayed heartbroken when you changed it to 18+ because she wanted to go Soo bad, but it was a no kids event, so mom and dad got a night away. With that being said, I seen quite a few littles running around, most younger than my daughter, which broke my heart. This would have been an awesome memory for our family, but because we followed the rules, we didn't bring her, which really irked my nerves seeing all the kids running around at an 18+ event, while my child was back home with Grandma in Georgia, not enjoying the beautiful fall weather listening to some of her favorite bands with Mom and Dad. To add to the age aspect, why was no one having to show their ID? You had children there and lots of young adults (no way all of them were over 21) getting wasted, and that's just not cool. Why not do a wristband thing, prove you're over 21, get a wristband snugly put on your wrist upon entering and there ya go. And if you're going to allow children, let us know. Like I said I would have loved to have brought my daughter, and she would have been ecstatic. Now onto the ridiculous lines and parking... Like I said before, learning experience, and boy there is lots to be learnt from that nightmare. Most people who have complained so rudely would probably have never, if they hadn't been stirred up and set off by that clusterf**k. Just saying, and no denying, that line and parking fiasco was too much, and probably what most people will remember about the festival, which ain't a good thing. This is where the serious pre planning needs to come into play. Maybe in the future, pre sale parking passes, and make it known in emails and in the FAQ section, don't try to hide the fees, and especially that it is cash only. I swear I read all your Facebook posts, and everything I thought was relevant on your website, but never seen that it was cash only, instead I found that you took cards and that there was an ATM on sight, which didn't help with parking. Thank God I scrounged up $20 from my car in that 2 hour line (and for the fact that it needed to be cleaned out so bad I found $20😂) If you are to continue having the festival at the same location, I highly suggest off site parking and shuttles, and for those that just "have" to park onsite jump the pricing. Not too many people would pay $50+ dollars to park for a day, and if they do, more money to fix the parking clusterf**k. You should talk to the local schools and churches that were nearby, offer them say $5 a car to park, charge $10 a person and offer shuttle service. Make you and the local community some money, and if it means shorter lines, I'm sure 99% of us would be all for it. You just can't have that many people cramming onto a two lane road, especially when searching the cars that are entering. Common sense there. 🤷 Instead, by off site parking, you eliminate the need for searching vehicles and can focus more time and security on people entering the gate. And if people are being shuttled, and traffic starts backing up that bad, people will be able to get off the shuttle and walk, thus reducing traffic. I'm sure that would also be appreciated by the people living on or near neck road also, and probably get you alot less complaints. With all that being said, it is your first year, and that should be taken into consideration, and this year should be a definite learning experience for everyone. Good luck next year, and if you need help putting learning experience into action let me know.
If you were a bartender yesterday @ the GA bar. I enjoyed working with you.
HATERS GONNA HATE!!!!
