By The Numbers: 2016 Week Six

This is the week last year we finally got break in the bad weather that plagued the festival all season, and it was a big one. This year the weather was near-perfect for being outdoors, and again it was a busy weekend. This is kind of weather we look forward to all summer.


  Saturday Sunday Total
2016 45,531 36,071 81,602
2015 45,413 37,392 82,805


Almost near identical numbers to this weekend last year. I guess if the weather is good, this is what we can expect for Barbarian Invasion weekend. The nice weather seemed to put everyone in a nice mood, and a good time was had by all.


Saturday Sunday
2016 Clear, High 78°, Low 55°, 55% Humidity Cloudy to Partly Cloudy, High 72°, Low 55°, 52% Humidity
2015 Partly Cloudy, High 71°, Low 51°, 60% Humidity Partly cloudy, High 75°, Low 54°, 70% Humidity


Near identical weather to sixth weekend last season and near identical attendance, not a coincidence I’m sure. This is the kind of weather you hope for when working or attending an outdoor festival. I wish every weekend had weather like this one.

The forecast for the coming weekend looks nice, but a little chilly for wearing a kilt. Highland Fling is always popular, (except with the sheep), so look for another big weekend ahead!

See you at the gates… Until then, ‘Fare thee well!’
