Perry Farrell’s Exclusive Commentary On Lolla’s Lineup For 2012
OK, you have your ticket, you know how to get here now lets go over some simple Do’s and Don’ts while you’re here:
Leave your large backpacks at home! Bring a blanket, sheet, or towel to relax on, don’t bring tents or chairs. Do bring a SOFT sided cooler with two factory sealed water bottles, up to one liter in size each per person. EMPTY camel backs and plastic bottles will be allowed. Don’t bring a hard sided cooler with outside food and drink, glass containers, or metal aerosol cans, including that spray sunscreen! Don’t bring any illegal substances, including alcohol, we want you to be able to stay and enjoy the show with us! Do remember to grab your (non-professional) cameras and flip videos to capture the experience.
