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.

Attendance:

  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.

Weather:

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!’
