View Full Version : Turntables anyone?
04-06-2006, 10:27 AM
So this is my first year at waka and i'm already excited. At some of the other festivals i've been to, people have brought independent sound systems and turntables, and set them up at their campsites. Is this allowed at waka, and if so would anyone be interested? I've got plenty of gear, and i'd love to throw down some jungle, but unfortunately i'm not at a powered site, so if anyone is and think it might be fun, hit me back. Thanks kids!

If you end up parked next to some nice folks from Kentucky and you happen to try this, LOOK OUT - they are NOT very nice at 3:00 a.m. when you are trying to throw your own little rave in the campground.
I went to the 1st Bonnaroo and had my weekend almost RUINED by some kids doing this. I LOST IT by the 3rd night. The saddest thing of it all is - NOBODY but themselves were there, and they were missing some of the best known dj's around who were performing at that time on the line-up!
With so much great music already happening - WHY?????

No powered music is allowed in the campground. Acoustic only.

Yeah, someone was doing that last year (I can't recall which night). I didn't mind too much since I was camped pretty far from them (and I had earplugs) but if I had to camp right next to them I would have been less than thrilled. Bring your acoustic turntables. :lol:

This is directly from the FAQ page.
What will we be allowed to bring into the campgrounds?
You can bring your own food and beverage into the camp ground areas. No glass containers or Kegs please. Fires must be modest and in small grills. No open fires. This policy will be strictly enforced. Acoustic music is welcome. No electrified music gear in the campgrounds please.
PLEASE follow these instructions if you are planning on using a grill.
You can use gas/propane fuel sources or charcoal, but scavenging for wood on site will NOT be permitted. The fire must be entirely contained and off the ground. Please keep the fires as small as possible and extinguish them as soon as you are finished. When you are done cooking with charcoal, put it out with water before going into the show, going to sleep or leaving your camp, rather than letting it burn out over time. In any case, DO NOT DUMP COALS ON THE GROUND or in the trash until they are entirely cool. After the coals are COMPLETELY DEAD, dispose of them properly.

cool, thanks for the input guys. i'll just bring my drums instead. i can definately see how people playing powered music late at night would be annoying too. at coventry, the kids camped right next to me brought some cd decks and started blasting disco at like 3000 decibels before phish even finished their 2nd set. but i figured if it was allowed, i'd play some music during the day.
