Festival goers, what are your experiences with sneaking alcohol past the security?
I personally wouldn't bother. Just recently I saw people try it here at Soundwave and they all got caught one way or another.
unless of course you're cool with shoving those little travel-size bottles up your butt...
Anyway, this year has been pretty amazing for me so far in terms of gigs. Just last week I was at Soundwave 2012. I managed to catch Chimaira, The Black Dahlia Murder, Gojira, little bit of Shadows Fall, Meshuggah, bit of Trivium, Mastodon, Lamb of God, a few Slipknot songs (not a big fan, just stood there for the sake of it) and System of a Down. Overall a pretty successful day considering I was on the rail for TBDM, Meshuggah, and Mastodon.
That day of course was followed by work early Monday morning, and then Dredg, Devin Townsend Project and Meshuggah playing their sideshow (which I was on the rail for Meshuggah, again :D ).
So yeah, after that week of pure live music ass kicking, my body has decided to get sick and is forcing me to slow down and recover. Totally worth it, though.
