    I think I might get a chance to be there. I've never been to Switzerland, but I'll be studying in Freiburg, Germany this summer. How much are tickets to one night?

    one thing you all have to know : Montreux is very (VERY) expensive... both the festival tickets (around 200 USD for a concert) and the hotels !!!!

    In fact, it is not sooo expensive:

    The tickets are 60 Euros for the night, and you can find comfortable youth-hostels for about 20 (dorms) to 50 Euros (2 bed room).

    And, it is one of europes most stunning countysides, you really have to go there (beautiful lake, palms, wine-hills, the alps and nice cities around).

    Ok, you should bring your food with you

    For me it`s now Montreux and Amsterdam

    Steely Dan plays right before DMB. I'd love to hear them on a guest song or two.

    I'm there with a standing room ticket. When are people lining up to get to the front when doors open at 19:00?

    Also, I've emailed the Warehouse to see what the taping restrictions are for this concert. I have a feeling that with Steely Dan and Chickenfoot, as well as at Montreux, that taping will not be allowed. I have no means to professionally record it, but I figured I'd check it out to see what to expect. Can Independence Day (USA!) get here any quicker?

    Wow, quick response:

    Jon -

    DMB allows taping at their shows unless the Festival has rules against it. They may not allow it because there are other bands playing you'd need to check with them.

    I think blusi and I are gonna get in line around 16:00. If anyone thinks that time should be earlier, just say it. I'm bound and determined to get to the best of the standing room area.

    I think the stehplatz (standing place) tickets are sold out. I was with a friend last weekend and she was unable to buy one at the window.

    You can always start trying a few weeks before the show. Sometimes venues release tickets. Where are you coming from?

    I'm from Penn State, but I'm going to Freiburg at the end of May. I don't know anyone over there, but I'm hoping to go with any Dave fans I meet.

    What are you studying there?

    Hope you can get a ticket. If you've got the cash and are really desperate, you might check ebay. Good luck.

    If you get a ticket, you're welcome to join the other ants who hope to be at the front of the line for rushing the GA when doors open.

    Chemical Engineering. Yes, I plan on getting a ticket. I've heard Switzerland is beautiful, and this festival can be my excuse to travel there.

    Which Freiburg are you studying in? German or Swiss?

    Switzerland is damn beautiful. It's a big difference from the Kansas I'm used to.

    Freiburg, Germany. I hope I meet someone there to go with. I also have two tickets to the Paris show, but I don't know anyone yet haha. Hopefully there are some DMB fans there.

    Yes, but tickets will likely be available when the show gets closer. That's usually the trend.
