Ozzfest to be exact. And I have some questions.

-What should I bring?

-What shouldn't I bring?

-Where and when do you get the merchandise?

-Where and when do you get to see the band members? Like get autographs or stuff.

-What should I be prepared for?

Thanks in advance for answering. And if you have any other things to add on, go ahead.

Bring an umbrella in case it rains, and a sweater in case it gets a bit chilly.

Also bring a sandwitch and some fresh fruit.

Yeah definitely bring the umbrella, you can also use it as a weapon if you go into the mosh pit

Man I was just at ozzfest on Saturday and it was killer. First you'll need to bring a huge water bottle, food, and money. You can get your merchandise when ever during the day but i suggest you buy it riight when you enter. To get autographs you have to go to a certain booth where they sell cd's and you buy which ever band you want to see's cd. During the concert be prepared for a huge mosh pit. Last thing is get there early so you're not in a huge line up at the gate or you might not get some of the shirts and **** you want.

Dont take knifes. they take those.

oh dont take cameras with interchangable lenses.

Chances are you wont meet the band.

Chances are at ozzfest, you WILL get hurt. I foresee a bloody nose.

Youll see mechandise places around. at Riverbend they have them all around before you go into the lawn and pavillion. You can get mechandise anytime you want. I bought my Def Leppard shirt when Foreigner was playing. Styx was better. Singer was a mad man on the keyboard. and got my Poison shirt while Ratt was playing

have fun.

-What should I bring?
Clothes money and ball's to not look scared and silly or you'll just get pushed ot the back

-What shouldn't I bring?
Aids

-Where and when do you get the merchandise?
There's stalls open all the time so you canbuy them

-Where and when do you get to see the band members? Like get autographs or stuff.
That's very hard to do in most cases unless you catch them having a wander or theres a special signing tent,which will be signposted

-What should I be prepared for?
Hardcore dancers who look like their 5 year olds having a strop and flailing arms. And the wall of death, they've had enough deaths in them at ozzfest

I went to Warped Tour last Saturday in Dallas, my first time going to anything like it... If you plan on crowd surfing (which I highly recommend...amazing) don't have a camera or phone in your pocket, in case you get dropped. That's how the screen on my camera got a couple small cracks... But make sure your shoes are tight as well, because people try to take them and throw them. Any money or anything, make sure it's in a pocket that you can button shut, a lot of people lost wallets and things. Bring your own bottle of water and refill it, water was expensive. I probably spent $30 at least on water alone. Bring a lot of money because you're going to see a million shirts, CD's, etc. that you want and it sucks not having much money. Wear shorts and a t-shirt, it's hot enough in that, and I saw some people in jeans. Cigs and weed aren't my thing but if you want them, bring them. Don't put it in a bag though, because they check those. There's nowhere to buy them except from other people once you're inside. And GET THERE EARLY. You don't want to wait in the back of a huge line. Or say you need to use the bathroom and wait at the front until they open the gates and let you in... That's how me and my friends got to the front.

Have fun. You'll be worn out in the end but WOW it's amazing.

Just watch out for the hardcore kids, if u dont why everybody keeps saying thats, its because they have 'a dance' that ruins the mosh pit and ur day, if they happen to hit, feel free get ur metalhead pal and own the **** out of them.

PS If ur.....per say...not very tall or strong.....highly advise not to take part of wall of death (if ui dont know what that is, imagine two armies charging at each other)

Other than that, have fun

bring a backpack with like 6 water bottles in it, and I usually bring a towel to wipe off the sweat or if there is a "shower" area to cool down in, I can become dry faster!!

Also, for whoever went to Ozzfest, how long did it last? And when did LoG, Nile, and Behemoth play?

If you want to bring anything illegal, as long as you dont look suspicious, taping it around your crotch works extremely well.
