When you attend a festival, you are faced with a bit of an issue, to pay a ridiculous price for a drink, or go thirsty.
An American festival-goer has come up with the best way of avoiding stupidly priced alcohol that we've ever seen, but it does take a bit of preparation.
Three weeks before the Electric Zoo festival in New York started, Alex travelled to the location of the event and buried a bottle of vodka in the grounds.
It was a long time before the crew had even started building the stages, so no one except him knew where the bottle was buried.
He had attended the festival a fair few times before, so he knew the exact layout of the event.
"I've been going to Electric Zoo for over four years now so I know the layout very well.
The planning of the burial was simple. We used Google maps and marked our spot on GPS so we knew where it would be. Then we waited."
Apparently the hardest part of the whole process was trying to dig up the bottle without attracting any unwanted attention from the staff.
"The objective once we got into the festival was to remove the bottle without attracting attention.
The hardest part was trying not to raise any suspicions because there's quite a lot of cameras and festival staff around.
Once we got to the GPS spot, we all huddled around it. I did a double take to make sure we were in the clear and then one of us dug up the vodka."
They then got the vodka and enjoyed the payoff after all the hard work.
