I used to be one of those that did Ultra along with afterparties 3 and 4 nights in a row. Constantly at shows/festival, running on 3 hours sleep, feeling in general like a bag of ass. Sure it was fun, it was new to me, and I was younger.
Now I'm looking forward to going out to eat, hanging at the condo and beach, and just overall relaxing as much as I am the two shows I'm going to this year. First time that I've done the condo thing, and I'm stoked! Wrap-around balcony, modern decor, 38th floor...ON THE BEACH. I'm sure my Klipsch bluetooth speaker will get a lot of play.
Anyways, besides that, here's my schedule
Friday: check-in early, hopefully at 3 or so. Hang out, get some cocktails, eat some good food, walk around, overall just have a chill time...until around 11 pm at which point I'm going to start making my way towards the Ice Palace for ENTER...
Saturday: go to sleep after Enter until late afternoon, and then just basically chill until 8 or 9. We're planning a good dinner somewhere so that'll be good. I'm not buying presales or committing to any parties. If I feel up to it, then maybe the Trade party with Dusky and Matthew Dear. That looks good.
Sunday: rent some jet-skis, get drunk on the beach, disco nap, and rest up for DRUMCODE at Space. Will stay as long as humanly possible.
Monday: get back from Drumcode, take a victory shot of Gran Marnier, pass out, and then go back on Tuesday morning.
Two events is all I'm planning. I used to plan two per day. I like the change -- think I'll enjoy everything more when there's less stress and commitment.
