    I am looking forward to this, and with two stages, I'll be able to miss the artists I don't care for. I haven't made it up for a Siren festival yet. Should be interesting.

    you're better off picking a stage and sticking to it if you want to get close for anything.

    the sound is always really poor @ Siren and it smells horrendous.
    I am going to get so blown to Cypress Hill while they play.

    Because Siren is a free show, all the shitty gutter punks around the Brooklyn area come to Coney Island for the festival. It smells like bad pot, awful body odor and hot dogs. It's a terrible blend.

    I'll pick whatever stage Helio Sequence is playing at and hope that Dragons of Zynth get the other stage.
