Audio on the Bay 2016 Set Times:
Plan your night out. The event is taking place from 5PM to 1AM both Saturday and Sunday. I generally try not to keep a rigid schedule, I generally pick 2-3 artists that are a “MUST SEE” and then just let the flow of the night take it from there. Make sure to leave adequate room to take bathroom and water breaks, and meet up with your friends also attending the event.
Mind Your Belongings
Unfortunately, many people have reported pickpockets, bag slashings, and theft of wallets, smartphones, purses and other valuables during this festival season. While this small number of bad apples in the bunch doesn’t define an entire crowd, there are opportunistic people who come to these events to take advantage of unsuspecting party goers and it’s important to be mindful of your valuables while at Audio On The Bay.
Pay attention to who’s around you and what’s going on around you. Keep your wallet and phone in your front pocket(s) if you can. Treat your phone the same way you would treat cash; don’t set it down on a table or bar and look away. If a friend isn’t standing behind you in a crowd, be careful of your backpack or purse, and don’t put valuables in a pocket that could easily be unzipped by someone behind in a crowded spot without you realizing.
The Bay Area is a very densely populated place, and is well-known as a place where pickpocketing of unsuspecting people occurs. It’s easy to find yourself in a crowded environment in a subway train, elevator, or even out on the street where someone could slip your wallet or phone our of your pocket or bag in a matter of seconds.
