It *is* mad crowded on the last night.. usually you find some sort of
space and have folks alternately defend it and run off to dance. Its
really nice on the Thursday before though, I went there last year
(albeit somewhat late) and it was much less cramped. I still don't
quite understand the layout of the place, but if you keep going, you
usually end up where you are supposed to be.
