    NO PEA I WAS BUSY GETTING ELBOWED BY EMINEM FANS IN SQUAMISH THANKS FOR RUBBING IT IN!
  2. Re: Squamish Valley Music Festival August 8-10, 2014

    I think it's somewhat lineup dependent. There were at least an extra 5000 people there on Sunday, and I'm betting 90% of them were there for Eminem and pretty much only Eminem. I don't have much...
