    As other have mentioned, they make it known that the rate will go up if it is a concert weekend, but they can't reveal that it actually is until its announced.

    I've always camped but to be honest as long as the hotel has a bed it doesn't really matter. Stay as close as you can to the venue. Most of your time will be spent in the lots before and after the shows.

    Where are you going to fly into? When you do eventually book it...

    If you want to hitch a ride Chicago or Milwaukee work so check prices on both. I can pick you up at either. Going to tell Uncle Ed and Lex the same thing.

    Unless it ends up being a small army like SPAC I'd say I can probably accommodate everyone and no rental needed.

    The SpongeBob Musical (Link) opens this summer at the Chicago Theatre and runs until early July, so this may win out over CVille for me (if that happens), because I would love to add that on to an Alpine weekend.

    ***Official Alpine Valley 2016 Thread***

    I called snug harbor campsite today I went ahead and booked for June 30th - July 3rd .. Anyways chatted this lady up for oh a good 15 minutes... She had asked if we were coming for a certain band ... I says why yes hoping its dmb weekend was hoping she could fill in any rumors or concrete ... She didn't know but she said that she had been hearing 6 maybe 7 bands at alpine this year and from what she heard the 3 last year phish, dmb, and buffet would be back again this year and she asked me if or whom else had I heard.... She also says to me wouldn't it be awesome if dmb played July 4th ??? Then she says you know they played July 4th once back in 10. Long shot .... ??? I'm not trying to suggest or begin a rumor bc I just don't know but just weird that she mentioned some facts about last time the band played on the Fourth of July .. Anyways they do offer shuttle service to and from campsite/venue For the price for camping and shuttle it was way to go for us. In case you call and no answer leave message if you can ...

    Interesting info. I would think the ACTUAL 4th is a long shot. I can't see them forgoing the weekend for a Monday night show, 4th or not. If they kept the Sat/Sun thing though, I would expect Sunday to be better attended since most people have Monday off. Now if we're talking a 3 nighter Sat/Sun/Mon...well that would be AMAZING.

    I love hearing that more bands are playing Alpine though! More bands=more money=improvement to the venue, or at the very least just staying open.

    Definitely a long shot for a sat/sun/mon ... With the 3 night rumors going around its always a possibility but for sure a long shot . Again not trying to start any rumors or get anyone's hopes up because again nothing concrete and until they release actual dates it's all hearsay anyways. From our experience last year regardless of crowd size both nights were awesome. Definitely a lot smaller crowd Sunday night then Sat but we were ok with that. Regardless One, Two or Three night stand it'll be one helluva show. See you all there ...

    Really hoping the rumored dates are true (07/01, 07/02).

    Taking off Friday and heading up to Alpine for Fri & Sat shows, then coming back for July 3rd and 4th just sounds too perfect.

    A few years back I was toasted at the campground. Beautiful night. 70 degrees, not a cloud in the sky. Pulled my sleeping bag into the middle of a field, laid down, and passed out. Everyone thought I was crazy. It was amazing!

    we did that at wildhorse at the gorge in 2013 too. we got there N0, and the campground was about half full...so we took our sleeping bags to the middle of a big open area and just stargazed. i love shit like that, especially at venues where the stars aren't drowned out by lights

    In 2012, we camped, (n2 we camped-n1 was the surface of the sun so we found a shitty hotel, but it had air and a shower) and our tent has an open top....it was pure magic-especially after that show we got. To be under the stars with a beautiful breeze....pure heaven.

    This came off wrong. My life is great. But will stink to miss DMB entirely this year. First time since I started following them.

    Hopefully dates come out tomorrow.
