Written by Nick Westcott, Gate Team Lead.
The last few days have been tough. It has made us sit back and take a long hard look at a number of procedures we have in place for running gate at Seed this year. It has made us get on many phone calls, answer many emails, monitor Facebook and Gumtree, and drink many bottles of wine. It has made us have too many serious conversations with other teams about what this all means. It has made us sad.
Most of all it has stopped us doing the important things we need to do to get ready for Burning Seed 2015.
We’re not going to get into a discussion about the pros and cons of ticket limits. About the impacts on crewing, permits, insurance and the quality of event we deliver. All we on gate want to say is that once you get to the site PLEASE do what you can to make our lives easy.
Have your ticket ready. Have your ID ready. If you’ve bought a ticket from someone, else have a copy of their ID ready. Let us search your car. Listen to the crew and give them the respect they deserve.
We are people like you. We are doing our absolute best to get everyone into the event as quickly and as safely as we can.
We cannot wait to see you.
