Default Need info on Burgettstown, PA 2 nights

I need to know just some basic details of the place like do they have a bar on site if not is there any close by? I've only been to single day shows before and this one is 2 nights so am i aloud to camp in a tent over the night i'm not really looking to drive to a hotel do they allow camping? And I seen it's 2 days back to back with another band called SOJA someone told me the music starts at 10 so is it an all day music festival with many bands? And please any other things i should know before i get there please let me know i'm open to all ideas.

Most people camp at Bennett Acres http://www.bennettacres.com/ I did when I was there, it was a good time. As far as I know it is not a festival. Assuming it is under regular conditions, the doors will open around 5ish, SOJA will perform very close to 715 until about 8, then the band comes on around 823ish. Good luck, have fun

Thanks Richie! So pretty much it's just a few miles away and i see they allow drinking in the park it says no reservations if you want to set up a tent checkout at 11am cash only. Do you remember how much you paid each night? And i seen a website that said pit tickets cost $319! when i went to hershey it was $73 so i hope that's wrong what do you think?

I've been to Pitt probably 7 times to see them and each time has been a pleasure. Not sure how much pit tickets cost but I bought seats for $45 last time I was there and one year I guy gave me great seats maybe 30 rows back. However, the lawn here is actually really good, with huge projection screens for viewing.

Camping is pretty fun and cheap, I remember <$20 a night and it is pretty liberal in regards to fun, almost a festival like atmosphere.

As with most DMB shows, N1 will be fun but N2 will be legendary/special, as is definitely the case with the Pitt shows. Every year they usually have an excellent second night (2 years ago was #3 overall for the summer via Almanac). The tailgating can be tricky, I would advise against outright pot smoking, be as confidential as possible and hope all your members are of legal drinking age as the place is crawling with undercovers.

Besides that enjoy the time, as I will surely be there as well!

Get them at the on sale date and pay face value. Pit tickets should be no more than 75ish, give or take. You'd be crazy to not hit the on sale date and rely on stub hub. Plus, you could always ask around these parts to see if anyone can get tickets from WH when the instant ticketing comes around.
