I am planning a trip with a group of friends to the Stuttgart beer festival in Sep/Oct
We have been to many Oktoberfests in Munich before but in the last few years, if you don't have a reservation, its becoming more and more difficult to get into any tent after the early afternoon. Its also impossible to get an evening reservation if you have not been a long term customer, so we though its time somewhere new.
Having looked at some of the tents websites it looks like if we book early we can get an evening reservation in most tents, is this correct?
I have been to the main site that lists the different tents but they have no real detail as to how they differ:
So I was wondering if someone could let me know how the tents differ, if at all, and what they like about certain tents (music, crowd etc.)?
We are a group of 10 Scottish guys who are mostly in our late 20s (probably vastly less mature than that) so any advice to first time visitors would be greatly appreciated!
