    Re: 2015 Advance Sale Friday May 16th at 10am

    Reddit complaints are just the new version of scalper complaints. I think Jay-Z, Beyonce, Drake, Bieber, fashion blogs, radio friendly lineup, and widespread YouTube live feed contributed to the...

    I know fairly little about EDM, but I do think the Sahara setup is amazing (we saw Big Gigantic from the ADA Risers and were blown away) and I actually think putting Empire of the Sun in there was an...
