Coming to MerleFest will be a completely different build-up to festivals here at home.
Normally, as me & The Boy roll away with the jeep packed up then it's time to make noise - the music gets cranked up and air drums and air guitars are the order of the day if we get caught in traffic - nothing is going to get us down.
Once we arrive then everything slows down immediately. There has been a tradition at one festival in particular that the first refreshment should always take place before the tents go up so that we can ensure that we are adequately 'hydrated' (kinda) while we decide who is going where etc. (That's our excuse and it works for us)
After that, we generally know that we have approximately 16 hours before we actually need
the tent so.... what's the rush ? In all honesty we generally get the tent up in double-quick time just so that we can really relax.
But to answer your question.... as soon as the engine is turned off at the campsite then all the cares of the world drop away.
