But does that really matter since it's a GA pit? You can just move your way as close to the barrier as you want. I've never been in a pit at an amphitheater show, so I don't know how big they are or how many they hold? But i'm guessing it's not hard to get a good spot when you're so close like that.

The point of winning the contest is that you get there first and presumably stick there the whole night.

Well, it's kind of hard to get any closer than 3 or 4 rows from the stage when you get in there after the First to the Barrier people, and they've packed themselves solid into 3 or 4 rows. I HATE people who show up later and then try to push through people to get closer. It is about the rudest thing in the entire world.

If I had to guess, I'd say the average amphitheater with a GA pit holds about 1,000 people. The FTTB compeitition would normally draw about 50-100ish names, so +1 guest, you're looking at about 100-200 people in before you, if you're at the front of the line without winning the contest.

I don't mind if people move through to try and get closer when there's spots to be had closer up. It only pisses me off when everyone is packed back to back with nowhere to go and they try and push through

I doesn't really bother me where I am in the pit because the main point is that i'm in the pit
