Buzz’s Dos and Don’ts of Streetfest 2014

Buzz Streetfest
KLAQ

I have been going to Streetfest now for 10 years and, in my time, I’ve learned a few lessons about how to maximize your fun while minimizing your time spent in police custody. Here are my personal Dos and Don’ts  learned from years of life on the street(fest).


 

The headlining bands don’t go on until after 7, but there are lots of other activities going on starting at 6.

 
 

For some reason, he doesn’t take that as the compliment it was intended to be.

 

DO

Use the restrooms inside the Convention Center and Abraham Chavez Theatre
 
 

They’re open, they’re air-conditioned and you're much less likely to get plop-back from the mountain of excrement inside every port-a-potty.

 

DON'T

Ask the police to form a “human wall” while you take a leak on the side of the Plaza
 
 

They won’t.

 
 

It’s really good and it’s included in the price of your ticket.

 
 

They stopped thinking that was funny in 2007, apparently.

 

DO

Charge Your Phone
 
 

Make sure your cell phone is fully charged before heading downtown.

 

DON'T

Charge your phone on an outlet inside the Convention Center unless you’re going to stay there with it
 
 

Asking a guy with a spider tattoo on his neck to keep an eye on it is a recipe for disaster. There WILL be charging stations provided by El Paso Electric throughout the downtown area.

 
 

Because, it’s delicious.

 

DO

Bring a change of underwear
 
 

Just in case.

 

DO

Dress for warm weather
 
 

Applying some sunblock before leaving the house for those hours before the sun sets isn't a bad idea either.

 

DON'T

Wear a fedora
