is it hard to get a spot up close to the stage or in the front?

not really, though what you will have to deal with is those who get to the front of the stage thursday at noon, and leave their chairs there for the whole show.

i'm not passing judgement on if it is right or wrong, but just FYI. There are alot of full time members of the Spirit of Suwannee that will leave their chairs right up front and not want you standing in front of them.

generally speaking though, you wont have any problem being up front if that is what you want, though at the large stage you might not want that as you will get a crook in your neck looking up ;) And teh sound on the Small stage is better up top :)

enjoy this is a good starter festie :)

The sound tends to be better a bit back from the stage where the PA comes into play. I stood at the front for a ARU show and Jimmy Herring's amp totally drowned out the Col's guitar. Back up about 30-40 feet and it was fine.

Rules state, "Chairs must be removed nightly". Wondering where the pile of "free chairs" will be piled by next morn.

the Spring Fest is a cool environment, where everybody chills. An available chair is yours, free for you to enjoy the comfort of, until the owner returns. Even the front row seats. (but, who'd want to sit there). Bring a couple chairs, one for camp, one for the music venue. Might put your name on it. Or, a unique indicator. Something to help you locate your chair. They all look alike- especially, after a few cold drinks. Be like the old lady at the Walmart parking lot; get a Pink, Fuzzy antenna ball. Now, you're groov'n.

Remember to grab your chair at night's end. And, return it the next morn.

I'll see all there. I'll be the one chill'n, enjoying the vib' from many, vistas around the venue. Maybe, swinging in a hammock, 'round the parimeter. :ugeek:
