Great time! Definitely attending again. Lots to do and very accommodating.
Liked: Great set up of venue. Excellent staff at each booth. Very friendly and helpful.
Venue is too small/narrow for the 30,000 sell out crowd. Not enough beer stations, not enough porta-potties and long, long waits in line. After waiting in line for an eternity, the beer station had sold out of Molson Canadian and the staff could not provide a commentary about the Coors Banquet beer which I had never had before. Greta Van Fleet and Foo Fighters were amazing. Full of energy and all hits were played. WooHoo for Good Ole Rock!
Liked: The weather; friendliness of the venue staff and servers.
Disliked: Absolutely! Not enough beer stations and potty areas caused long, long waits. There weren't enough wandering beer staff either. Also, the silly, silly rules concerning: having a bracelet attached to your wrist saying you've had I.D. verified. I can understand this for a 19-25 year old but when the individual is clearly over age, why bother? Total waste of time, effort and paper. Another silly rule: Can't have a smoke and a drink in the designated smoking section. I'm not a smoker but this makes no sense. Guess you can only have 1 vice at a time in the "SPECIAL" area which by the way, is just a short fenced in area really close to everyone anyways. Yet another rule: You can only buy 2 beers at a time. So, instead of all of us trekking our way of the crowd and losing our spot, my friend decided to go for a beer run to bring back 5 beers...nope, nope nope. This is not allowed. Only 2 beers per person. Ridiculous! In MTL, we can buy beers for all, no question! And lastly, my friend wanted to buy 2 shots of rum at the mojito tent. Turns out you MUST HAVE THE WHOLE DRINK. In addition, she could only buy one because I was not with her to prove she was buying one for me also. Thankfully, I was able to quickly join her to prove I was a real person. If these rules are designed to maintain order and limit drunkiness, I can tell you it doesn't quite work that way. Plenty of folks were staggering about. All you do by insisting on these controlling rules is make people angry at the long waits for everything and no logical explanation for the rules.
Yeah I'd do it again if the right artist/bands were playing.
Liked: The ticket booth workers.
Disliked: Too many people over drinking alcohol and smoking cigarettes in non smoking areas.
We went to see a few shows at the Bluesfest. Many stages; walking distance from hotel; port-o-potties weren't gross, even though it was the last day of festival.
Liked: Great venue (Bluesfest).
I went and saw the Ottawa Capital Hoedown at LeBreton Flats Park, and it was a great location! Close to most hotels and they had a great set up for jumbo screens, vendors and space for everyone to sit confortably. The rest of the park I noticed was under construction for the new redevelopment project so I didn't experience any other part of it.
Liked: Great Location for Concert!
Disliked: Under Construction (Redevelopment)
