This post was originally published on this site

At a major event like Bonnaroo Festival, the safety of the attendees is usually the top priority of the medical staff. The paramedic team, who already had their hands full with 37 hospitalizations and one death at this year’s festival, were forced to look after their own, as four paramedics were hospitalized for exposure to carbon monoxide.

Due to a blocked exhaust pipe of a generator, the Bonnaroo staff’s recreational vehicle began to fill with toxic carbon monoxide gas. Fortunately, one of the paramedics awoke on Monday and was able to find help. Three members of the medical team were airlifted to a hospital while the other was taken to a nearby facility. The names and conditions of the paramedics remain unknown.

Bonnaroo announces free laundry service and vintage clothing swap

This post was originally published on this site

One can’t expect to attend Bonnaroo and not get a little dirty. It’s a 4-day extravaganza in the outskirts of Manchester, Tennessee, where the hot June sun is only a small factor in a dirt-filled, potentially muddy environment…but that’s the fun of it right?

Well, attendees can prepare to have as much fun as they want without the worries of having to wear a soiled t-shirt from day 1, as the festival has announced a free laundry service and vintage clothing swap. The new addition — called the LaundROO Lounge — will be a 3,600 square-foot area in Centeroo where festival-goers can drop off dirty clothes and have them washed, dried, and folded for free.

Powered by LG Electronics, the site will also feature 2,500 pieces of vintage clothing (sourced from NY-based clothing shop, What Goes Around Comes Around), which attendees can choose from to trade for what they’re already wearing. The traded clothes will be washed and displayed for others to check out and potentially swap. Any unclaimed clothing will be donated to United Way of the Greater Clarksville Region.

Bonnaroo 2018 kicks off June 7 and features performances by Eminem, Alison Wonderland, Virtual Self, Bassnectar, The Killers, and more. Visit the official website for more info.

Beat drops & hook ups: new survey identifies the most ‘promiscuous’ music festivals

This post was originally published on this site

A new survey conducted by Tickpick sought to evaluate the hookup culture of the festival scene, and as the findings indicate, it’s thriving.

Tickpick collected self-reported information from 1,050 people from Amazon’s Mechanical Turk about their sexual activity at music festivals. The statistics revealed 50.2% of festival goers to be open to a “weekend fling,” meaning that the odds of finding a temporary rave bae in the crowd are very likely to be in the favor of those seeking one. 33.6% of attendees reported having sex at a music festival.

Camping festivals Electric Forest, Bonnaroo, and Burning Man ranked as the top three most popular music festivals for sex, with 30.2%, 27.3%, and 25.2% of ticket holders experiencing a sexual encounter at each event, respectively.

Tickpick’s data determined Burning Man and Electric Forest to be the top two music festivals for oral sex, with 28.2% of Burning Man attendees engaging in oral activity, and 20.9% of Electric Forest attendees following suit. Electric Daisy Carnival came in third at 18.7%. 46.4% of festival goers stated that they’d had oral sex with someone they’d just met at one of the listed festivals.

A daring 3.8% of survey participants said that they’d had sex in a festival dance tent. Surprisingly enough, a dance tent was the area that saw the least sex: port-a-potties saw comparatively more action, with 9.4% of attendees getting it on by the toilets. 15.3% reported doing so in a crowd, while 7.2% got hot and heavy backstage. The two most popular locations for festival sex were the tent, and the car.

As the survey identified, “face down a** up that’s the way we like to f*ck” isn’t just a favorite song to shout among festival crowds: doggy style turned out to be the most popular position of festival hookups, with 43.9% citing doggy style as their preferred festival position.
