Thank you vendors for keeping it affordable. I was consistently amazed how reasonable prices were inside the festival grounds. I never once felt like I was being taken advantage of, and that's a first for a music festival!

Yeah that food was great. In fact it was too great...every time I'd walk by, I'd smell that kickass Chinese and Mexican food and get the urge to spend my money. $7 for a plate of Chinese food is a little bit much but it was pretty damn good.

The tamales and sweet potato fries rocked.
Yes, the vendors kicked ass! The food was great and reasonably priced and thank god for the vendors selling beer behind their tents for the late night sessions!
Chicken on a stick was incredibly good.

As soon as I found IRIE KITCHEN, I knew I was set for the weekend. I ate there almost every time. Had at least 5 meals there and it was awesome every time. Thank you so much for the specialty in veggie foods. That gave me the energy to keep going all weekend.
Fallafel, BBQ Tofu Plate, and Hummus sandwiches... awesome. Wish they had a restaurant in my hometown.
Only complaint about the food -- and this was a huge one for me -- I could not find coffee in the stage area. Where was it? The only coffee was in the campground. As a result I couldn't stay up for the 3AM-4AM STS9 set, cuz my caffeine levels were dangerously low. At other festivals I've attended you could drink espresso's all night. I enjoyed the Coffee Girls tent in the campground, it was good quality, but they were running way-way behind with long lines, and brewing coffee directly into your cup instead of properly brewing it, due to the long lines. In short: Get more coffee vendors please.

I thought the food was great, and affordable. I think I had my first corn dog in about ten years, and was getting free samples of stuff too. Also great that some vendors stayed open very late, saved our lives!

Anybody get any Krispy Kremes? :D

BTW, what did you all think about the vendor situation in camping? Should they be allowed? Is this fair for the vendors who paid tons of money inside the venue? What about them coming out and charging $100 for them to vend? Just wondering opinions on this....

mh, were you a vendor? You mentioned putting up a vending tent. what were you selling? Just curious.
06-23-2004, 07:51 AM
Yes, we did do some vending (on top of lots of other stuff).... we were the Krispy Kreme tent with sno cones and drinks... lol and don't forget the hangover chasers!

We lost money on the booth BTW. :cry:

Aww, bummer. It didnt' seem like many people were patronizing the food vendors.

I know my party ate about 20 cheese fries over the weekend

MetalHead... was that you giving away free Krispy Kremes in the tent on Sunday??
06-23-2004, 12:25 PM

OK, I'll admit to Krispy Kreme for sugar rush after midnight. This occurred during the mad search for coffee on the mainstage grounds. It was tragic you guys couldn't offer coffee. Anyway later that night my friend stumbled into a hole in the ground. We put a donut in there to make a donut hole. At this time of the night it was very funny. :roll:
06-23-2004, 06:39 PM
Yes, I think we would have done much better with the coffee... just wasn't happening though.... :?

Damn mh, I walked right by you and didn't say a word. Ah well, I'm sure we'll all meet one day.

It was so nice not having to pay $10+ for a bag of ice. . .*cough* Bonnaroo *cough*
Really enjoyed the Relix booth. Two years=$20. Not bad. Not bad at all.
