Quick guide for the search
X


  • Wildcard-Search
    With the help of a so-called wildcard you can look for several search words, which have the same word beginning. If you search e.g. for "Typo*", the search will find everything that begins with "Typo" : Typo3, Typoscript, Typocode, Typo3user... etc.
  • Negative search
    If you do not want to find certain expressions in your search result, you can cause this with placing a hyphen in front. Terms containing this phrase are excluded from the search result.
  • Search for user
    It is possible to limit the search result on answers of certain users. In addition to the retrieval query attach still another "user:username" and find the results, which were written by this certain user. If the username could not be found this will be ignored.

A wild guess would be around 75% arrive during the first day.

I think that's a good estimate. Since the festival admits 100000+ including volunteers that's a shitload of people the first 24hrs.
In an old festival newspaper from 2007 it said 45000 of 75000 (purchased tickets, non-working) had been exchanged for wristbands during sunday. And more people just seem to arrive earlier every year.

Thanks for your estimation.
Does some people arrive on Friday and sleep in queue? Or they start to come Saturday morning as soon?

Some, very few arrive Thursday evening to queue up for a spot even though the queuing isn't even open then. Most start arriving Saturday morning when the public transport to the festival starts running.

Found an article from 2010. Published monday noon, opening at that time was sunday morning.
And it probably has escalated a bit since.
