    Re: ***Official Gilford 2020 Thread***

    First time hitting up this venue, only doing N1 as we vacation throughout the NE. Seems like the consensuses is this venue is very laid back and chill. I would assume the camping is also like that? Think of doing that since we are just passing through.

    Anyone have any idea how hard it is to get a wooded site?

    Thanks everyone!

    It's laid back and chill up until over a thousand people can't get in as the show is going on and event staff lose their minds in panic, as long as you get into the venue like two hours ahead of time you're good


    Not sure about the camping

    Eh, even with that... it's surprisingly still very laid back. If it were Mansfield/Hartford, there would be riots.

    I dont know what Toy is talking about. I have been to every DMB show at Gilford. The most easy chill venue to get into. They do have a bag policy but you def do not need to get in 2 hours early.

    I've been to every show also... 2 hours is hyperbole for sure. But you need a good amount of time to get in... at least 45mins prior to show time.

    6/13/18 there were two endless lines coming from two directions with fans being forced to wait around for event staff to figure out how to get them into the venue faster, at which point the event staff that walked by me were in full panic mode stating "I don't know what to do, it's usually not like this". I was in line to get in over a half hour before the show started and missed the first four songs as did endless others. As Drop said at least this didn't happen in Hartford. I was exaggerating the point with the two hours, although assuming I go this year I'd like to get in way ahead of time.

    Yeah, worth it.

    I would disagree. Parking was easy to get out on 15 dollar parking.

    Parking, yes, easy... it's getting through the gate that was a pain in the ass.

    I've been to a lot of shows there... for whatever reason, DMB is the only one where there's been a long ass wait to get through the gate.

    VIP parking has their own back exit, so you're more or less guaranteed to be out essentially immediately, and it doesn't dump you out onto the same road the rest of the parking exits through.

    Can anyone tell me what the "LaBelle Winery Club Seating" is in this venue? I guess they are tables with wait service? Is section 3D3T2 part of this? How's the views and sound? Thanks!

    Yes. I actually bought them for n2 this year. Had them in 2018 too. It's a 6' folding table with two folding chairs. That's your space with tableside service. I like it because you get a little more space to stand and dance. Views are okay. You're not close though obviously. Sound is okay too, but I haven't been to the far edges on those seats. Again, this venue is very laid back. I spent time at my table, but I also met up with friends who had different seats on the side at a picnic table and watched the show from there too.

    Maybe Incubus. Rest of the calendar isn't really appealing to me. Was hoping Live would come back this year since I missed that show last year.

    That sounds pretty great, especially after night
    1 in the pit would be nice to just have a chill area to relax and take in the show. Those section numbers are so confusing lol. Thanks

    for anyone that would know, is the $15 ticket for a fast pass easy out ticket? Do you have to pay for parking in NH or is it like Mansfield with free lots?

    Steve or anyone, how is tailgating at NH? Is it set-up like Mansfield for those that have gone and you can party in the lots for 3 hours before going into the show? Or are there adjacent lots to the stadium that fans go to to party?

    Thanks in advance.

    Bank of NH fb page has some promising news- says they hope for full capacity shows by July (there will be pit) and if DMB doesnít want to do July they will probably move it to September.
