The more you know the more fun you will have.
Festivaling is a hobby like fishing, golfing and skiing/snowboarding. The more you are prepared the more fun you will have. Once you have learned the ropes you will even be able to help the people around you have their best festival. Check out the #30DaysToFestPRO video and read The FestivalGoer's Guide and you will be ready for anything the festival will throw at you.
