The Gorge campground will be your home Memorial Day Weekend, and we want to help make it the best experience it can be. With a little help from Yohan the Yeti and his friend Eduardo, here are some simple tips for how to do the festival Squatchstyle!
The Gorge looks like it's going to have some stellar weather this year, but you can never be too sure, it is Washington after all! So be sure to bring clothes for any weather condition. Also, keep in mind that it can get really cold at night, so it's always a good call to take a light jacket with you into the fest since it will likely be much colder when you leave!
Make your campsite your own and create a visual marker, whether it's with your own flag, marking it with reflective tape so you can see it at night or some other creation, it just makes it easier to navigate to your festival home.
WATER IS SO IMPORTANT! So make sure that you're hydrating yourself throughout the day, your body will thank you! You can bring in an empty waterbottle to the festival grounds, which we highly suggest you so that you're not buying a waterbottle every time you're thirsty, it saves plastic and $crilla. There are several water stations available at the festival, so you'll be able to hydrate at no cost!
It will also be easier to eat healthier with brand new food options available in the festival grounds, including portobello mushroom burgers and organic coffee, but we still suggest bringing food and snacks into the fest to munch on throughout the day!
We've all been there, you're watching a show, dancing, you turn around and realize ALL of your friends are gone. To make matters worse, you have no cell reception.
An easy way to avoid this is to use the buddy system and establish a "Concert Pal". That way, you're always with someone. We also suggest creating a meeting spot, so that if your friends lose you or vis-a -versa, you have a designated spot to find each other again.
Another way to find your friends that we're a fan of is by making signal flags. You can use anything and it's super useful when you're trying to sift through a crowd and/or can't find your friends. Yohan and Eduardo use the "Live Free" Pennants to find each other when they're lost!
It seems like a no-brainer, but pick up after yourselves! The effort to do so will go a longggggg way in improving your experience. Try to conserve and reduce your waste any way you can!
The Sasquatch App will be your ultimate guide to the festival and includes all the information you'll need to make the most of it! This year's app includes incredible features from the ability to create your own schedule and set reminders so that you never miss an act, to interactive maps with a drop pin feature, so you always know where you are!
We created a map exclusively for the campground this year to help you understand how the area is laid out. What's most useful to note is the bathrooms, all of which are marked and labeled, corresponding to what section they are in. When you get to the gorge, FIND the closest one, and remember the name of it, it will make your life so much easier!
We want to see what you're up to!
