Daily Meetups @ Bluesfest

Bluesfest is back to Ottawa! 

Linuep this year includes Lady GaGa,  Foreigner, STYX, Journey and The Killers and much more.

For two years 2011 and 2012, we have successfully done this before. Daily meetups at Bluesfest  where we had a few members who were volunteering at Bluesfest  and we setup a meetup spot and people met between shows during the festival , socialized and checked new shows together.

I will be volunteering at Casino Lac Leamy Suits,  we will setup the meetup spot later. If you are attending and/or volunteering or want to host a meetup for a specific show indicate here as a comment and provide the spot and contact information for meetup.

Please also indicate if you are a volunteer

      The storm issue threw everything into chaos as they weren't even letting volunteers onto the grounds until 5:10. Marcia and I were right at the security row down the middle about 40 feet in front of the stage. Once the rain started, to have an organized meetup was a challenge, especially if you haven't met before and you're now wearing rain gear. My cellphone survived but was soaked.

      My cell phone didnt survive..using a replacement till mine is fixed

    • Ross

      A great closing night! The only bummer about that night is there's no time to get a good spot up close after Moist.
      Moist - 7-8 @ Bell
      Sam Roberts Band - 8-9:15 @ Claridge
      Collective Soul - 9:15-10:30 @ Bell

    Have fun tonight I won't be there... I couldn't find anyone last night once my shift was over.... tooo many people lol

    July 4, 2014

  • Jimbo

    I'll check the Empire Grill and Party Central entrances between sets as suggested by Ala, hope to see you there.

    July 4, 2014

  • Jimbo

    If you want to meet, you pretty well have to set a time and place, so many people!
    Journey would be good, not sure about Zedd, don't know the band.

    July 4, 2014

    • Ala'

      I will be there at 7:15-7:30 for Journey..there is a chance I might be there earlier. Empire Grill entrance is a good spot, otherwise Party Central entrance is good because it is on the side

      July 4, 2014

    • Ala'

      I mean I will arrive there between 7:15-7:30

      July 4, 2014

  • Kathleen

    I can meet up after 6:15 if that works for anyone.

    July 4, 2014

  • Ross

    Hey Ala, since this is all in one event I was wondering if a new conversation could be started for each day and everyone would reply to that on the specified day? For example, the conversation would start like: FRIDAY JULY 4

    July 4, 2014

    • Ala'

      Ross, I agree. Lets start a comment and reply to it in the thread, I will send also an email to everyone now

  • Ala'

    Here is my suggestion for a meetup spot. Lets do it for tomorrow and see if that works. Lets meet by the Empire Grill just across from the Bell Stage between bands.
    I personally will be volunteering from 12-8 tomorrow. Therefore I will be there by the Grill at 8:15pm. And possibly at 3:45 after my first shift.

    I am at Casino Lac Leamy Suits, not sure if I will be at the gate or bar yet.

    1 · July 2, 2014

    • Donna

      I finish around 8pm as well so sounds like a plan.

      July 2, 2014

    Just a little info for those that are volunteering but didn't go to orientation night or for those that are interested: The layout is a bit different this year. The main stage is at one end where it was but the Claridge stage is backing onto Booth St. The main entrance to the fest is on Wellington. Rickard's Pub (aka Mill St. Pub) is right beside the main entrance. They moved the volunteer village way back in the field with the entrance down Booth St. (which I am not happy about) There is another entrance to the fest across from the entrance to the museum. There will be a separate entrance there for the volunteers. Here is a copy of the map to help figure out where everyone wants to meet....
