I know this is the pit and all, but seriously? You can't google it or, I don't know, go to a frickin library?
You've met with a terrible fate, haven't you?

Yes, I'm sure any self-respecting library has a plethora of literature on "At a festival are you more likely to go to the bar if you know how long the queue is?"

The poll wasn't up for the first couple of answers.

Hence, the Pit answers.

EDIT: Serious answer, I don't buy drinks from the bar at festivals OR concerts, I'm not made of money.

I try not to go to the bar if i can help it, the beer is overpriced and generally not great, and it takes ages to get served. I have only been to a festival once, and i got beer from the local supermarket, although you weren't allowed to take any of it into the arena, which was annoying.

If i had an idea of how long it would take to get served, then yeah i might be more tempted, although i don't know what you are thinking festivals could do in order to make that possible.
WHOMP

Think of that next time you are not allowed to laugh.

Now the actual question is up:

If I could avoid it, I wouldn't buy from the bars at all, but all the festivals I've been to don't allow your own drink in the arena, meaning you have to buy from the bars to drink whilst watching bands or whatever. And yeah, of course I'm less likely to bother if there's a massive queue, who isn't?

I'm from Milwaukee. Festivals, drinking and music are just about all I know. The combination of all three is just gravy.

For example, I saw MGMT on Wednesday at Summerfest. Probably was saving seats for four hours before the show, even though we originally just sort of parked for a moment and realized there were a lot of people there for MGMT already. My friend and I basically just switched off going to the bathroom, getting food and me getting horribly overpriced beer ($5.50 for a pretty conservatively poured cup of High Life).

I might go again on Saturday to use up my free passes I have, even though there aren't any acts in particular I want to see (lol, Foreigner).
