    Various outfits have offered filtered water spigots at music festivals on the west coast for several years now, and it's a definite improvement on taste (no active cooling) - but I've seen'em quit working after the 2nd or 3rd day because the filter cartridges get gummed-up (think about the raw "potable" water that was being filtered) at fests with <5,000 attendees. Hopefully, if the Fest taps are filtered, the provider will handle maintenance of'em.
    a gal can dream!

      A revamped water filling station with multiple stainless steel taps (hoping the water is colder and fresher)

      Edit because I just noticed this info on the actual website but I had not noticed before...
      It's about time they came up with a better water filling station. As for being cold, it doesn't stay that way very long down here. Haha. That is always my first stop when I get to da fest.

        Glad it wasn't just me. I was trying to find it last night but no luck.

          I've seen both do demos and thoroughly enjoyed them.

          The app is quite nice. I realize it's a free app, but one thing that I'd like (ideal world here) is the ability to rotate of otherwise be able to fit more of my daily schedule onto the screen. Makes it easier to manage conflicts and transitions. But easy enough to work around.

          Cheers.

            Agree - rotation would make it much more usable

              Where is the Water Filling station. I'm always lugging 3 or 4 1.5 liter bottles in for the 2 of us. A decent station and I could refill at some point and carry less.

                On the map, look just to the left of the General Store

                  There are two, one by each pond, on the grandstand side. As Molo said, the Gentilly-side one is by the general store. The Fess-side one is sort of hidden behind the beer booth next to the left-most food booth of Food II.

                    I remember the one by the gentilly pond from years ago. Was somewhat frightening.

                      The android app still doesn't show up if you search the Play store, but here's a direct link.

                          Both. Both. The water fountain is (was?) inside, near the restrooms. Cold water, too. With 1st Sunday's temps predicted too e in the 90's I imagine I'll need to get in there from time to time for a respite from the heat. Even tho there's no interview stage this year.
