Not really. Just do your merch buying or whatever early in the day, then go put your backpack in your hotel room if it's close by .

yea, from what I saw last year, you would be a fool to do anything with your backpack other than leave it on your back. Even then, if youre a drunk asshole like myself, it might be safer in a bush somewhere. Ditch that shit before you lose it.

There's no place to check bags no, just leave it in your hotel room.

Of course! Just talk to the concierge, I'm sure they'd gladly put it in a special bin in the coat room for you.

Usually when I'm at a regular show I can get the door guy or a bartender to watchover my pack for me... but that's smaller shows. I almost hoped they'd offer lockers since this is such a giant giant festival... but of course that's just wishful thinking. Looks like I'll have to haul my shit around everywhere I go there, not a big deal tho.

There are a whole bunch of bruthas on the streets who will take your pack free of charge

Porters? Great, how much per day do they charge?

Strange that they don't have a coat check/bag check. Most venues I've been to have one for a fee.

Sonar during MDF is far from a normal venue.

Just booked a room from the 22nd - 27th, $88 a night at .4 miles away from Sonar. Pretty decent deal.

No, you're thinking of the wallet inspectors.

the idea of a coat room or a place to store your stuff was really out of the ordinary to see at NWN Fest, but a blessing if your hotel is 15 minutes walk away. ive never been to any venue in the US with either option available. even the metal bar in Berlin had a spot to hang your coats and nobody would fuck with them, i wouldn't think of ever leaving any of my stuff around a bar/venue in the US. maybe i had good luck but i think europeans aren't as interested in stealing from people as we are in the USA, since Americans will throw it on craigslist for some quick cash

Weird... pretty much every "professional" venue around here has a coat/bag check. Seems like it would be a sensible thing at MDF, given that most people don't want to carry their shit around all day and would probably happily pay a few bucks to have someone else watch it for the duration.

Well, we're also talking about a venue staffed with people known to shake people down with threats of removing wristbands and throwing them out for the weekend without a cash pay off. I would never, ever leave my stuff with any member of their event staff. Few minutes walk to the hotel to drop off back packs with merch and to slam a few beers is the way to go for me.
