A guy buried vodka inside festival venue before event to avoid bar prices
A guy buried his vodka weeks before Electric Zoo in a creative scheme to avoid festival bar prices.
Getting alcohol into the stage area of a festival can be nearly impossible regarding the hawk-like scrutiny of the security.
Event organisers don’t want the stage area littered with broken glass that could harm partygoers and wish to minimise the prospect of projectiles being thrown at bands or punters.
This leaves you with the option of buying drinks at stalls within the festival ‘walls.’
Anyone who has been to a festival knows how expensive this becomes, so if you are light on cash it isn’t ideal.
Festival-goer Alex opted for the different, creative option of burying his alcohol weeks before the festival was due so that he could dig up his treasure when it started.
3 weeks before Electric Zoo festival in NYC, Alex and his friends went to the location at Randall’s Island armed with a shovel and a durable bottle filled with vodka.
The vodka treasure was buried long before festival crew arrived to start setting up- they were completely oblivious.
A plan like this needs to be meticulously crafted in order for it to succeed.
Alex divulged their steps to Lad Bible:
“I’ve been going to Electric Zoo for over four years now so I know the layout very well
The planning of the burial was simple. We used Google maps and marked our spot on GPS so we knew where it would be. Then we waited.”
“The objective once we got into the festival was to remove the bottle without attracting attention.
The hardest part was trying not to raise any suspicions because there’s quite a lot of cameras and festival staff around.
Once we got to the GPS spot, we all huddled around it. I did a double take to make sure we were in the clear and then one of us dug up the vodka.”
After uploading the images to Facebook, the story went viral and Alex is now busy writing a book of festival tips and secrets set for release in 2018.
