    I will only be there on Friday. I am planning to see JD McPherson (glad to see others interested in him as well), The Mountain Goats and Old Crow Medicine Show!

    I have a few ideas... The gates open at 1, but most of us will be standing in line waiting to get in a while, I would think. So we should have a slightly later time to meet, maybe 1:30? Music starts at 2 or later, so maybe we could meet at 1:30ish and figure out what everyone is planning to see. If we are interested in the same shows, we could plan to meet up at those shows, perhaps? The only act I definitely want to see is Hey Marseilles which is from 2:25-3:10 at the Harbor Tent. Other than that, I'm open to see any band. We could swap phone #'s so if one person gets a spot, they could text to let the others interested know where they can be found. If we meet at 1:30, we'll at least know who we are looking for (for those of us who haven't met in person, yet).

    For a 1:30 meetup, we could pick a place like the water fountain near the main entrance? I think that is close to all the stages. Maybe if you bring something with you to identify you as part of the "meetup" group?

    It can be hard to actually "meet up" since there are 3 stages and everyone is constantly moving, but I will be there all 3 days and plan on being there somewhat early on Fri. Would love to meet people and chat before the music starts on Friday, if people want to! I think my plan for Friday is to be at the Fort stage for the first two sets and the Quad stage for the last two sets.

    Hi! This will be my first Meetup with the group. Just got tickets for the Friday pass (only ones left), but "Hey Marseilles" will be there Friday and they are awesome. Anyone else going on Friday? Looking forward to meeting people in the group.

    Glad I found this group. I went a couple years ago and had a fantastic time. Couldn't attend last year but I was lucky enough to snag an early bird 3-day pass for this year. I'll be coming with a buddy of mine, but would love to meet the group.
