The vibe at Wanee is my favorite out of every fest I've been to. A huge part of that is the age of the crowd. I am 31, I feel ancient at hula and like a infant at Wanee. I am a fan of the old crowd (except the goddamn chairs people, come on!), but I agree that the festival has to adapt in order I sustain. Now granted I have been saying that for years and it hasn't adapted and it has sustained, but I don't think that can happen much longer. Along those lines, how was the crowd size, less than last year? And follow up questsuon, how many vendors were there, less than last year?

On Sunday AM last year I went down to grab some breakfast before leaving the fest and heard a couple vendors talking about how it was by far the worst they've ever done sales wise at Wanee. The crowd size certainly wasn't there to support the number of vendors last year, so just curious as to if it were any different.

The crowd size was decent. I do think Friday there was a good size influx of spread heads though. I would say they were probably happy with attendance.

Vendors probably did not do very well. Food at least. Never saw a line even during dinner/lunch rush. Too many old campers who know what they are doing. At hula the lines for food vendors got long at times but thats a bunch of kids on what could very likely be one of their first campovers.

as an old camper... good assessment. We brought a little food home, and much fire wood. :lol:

14K ticket sales and a max of 16K 'people on site' are the figures used by EMT and fire there this year, and usually kept very current.

THANKS to the EMT squad for bandaging me up late night after a couple days of suffering poison sumac (???) / fresh vine goosh burn on my arm. I went to wallyworld for bandages after that, but WOW was it nice to have comfort at midnight. I brought them VolkeMom cookies. Hope they ate them.
