I usually prioritize away bands so I can have more beer time
Me too If I am having fun talking to people, I would only leave the beer tent for a must see band. I've had festivals where I've seen no more than 4-5 bands for one reason or another
it's because you glorious Europeans are spoiled - you get great festivals all the time and so don't feel the need to watch all the bands.
a lot of these amazing bands rarely come to the states, so i feel like i had better watch them! we don't get very good festivals over here, only a few and they could be MUCH better.
but who knows, i'm also entitled to check out a song or two, then run back to the beer tent if i'm not blown away by a band!
