    This is one gross lineup. But, if anyone wants to go for some odd reason, at least go VIP at half off. Although at the time of this posting not one person has bought one yet haha

    It has actual a pretty decent radio friendly hip hop lineup. It's the stuff that gets played on the radio but not the worst. As far as the other crap pooey

    State sanctions Playground Festival promoter
    September 2nd, 2011, 2:32 pm 22 Comments posted by Ronald Campbell

    The state Department of Corporations ordered Elevated Sound Productions, co-producer of this weekend’s Playground Festival in Irvine, to stop selling investments.

    The order, dated Thursday but released mid-day Friday, also names ESP senior salesman Jake Hurtado, who was caught on tape promising a 2-to-1 return to Michigan private investigator Ken Ascher if he staked $67,000 on the Saturday-Sunday concert.

    We wrote about ESP’s hard-sell tactics a couple of days ago. We also put Ascher in touch with the Department of Corporations, resulting in Friday’s action, which bars future securities sales by ESP. You can read the state order here.

    Calls to ESP Friday were not returned.

    Coincidentally, ESP’s website abruptly went blank Friday. The underlying code also disappeared from the site. However, the Playground Festival website remains active, as does a second website connected to ESP, MindControlledEvent.com.

    these guys: "The idea for Playground Festival started with concert promoters Jason Winkler and Dean Abramowitz. The two revealed their motives “We want to establish a smaller, but still mainstream version, of Coachella but branded Orange County.”

    hope they failed.

    edit: yeah, this won't be back.

    http://soundcheck.ocregister.com/201...y-start/60201/

    "Well, we didn’t exactly have high hopes. Word about Playground Festival, which has taken over Hidden Valley in Irvine this weekend with a weird mix of hip-hop and not-exactly-fresh rock, only began to surface about three weeks ago — not enough time to properly promote it, let alone live up to ludicrous self-hype that this would be “O.C.’s Coachella.”
    No sooner had the fest come to light than it seemed to run into trouble, culminating in a state sanction issued Friday against co-producer Elevated Sound Productions. That group was ordered to stop selling investments in the event, reportedly done through hard-pitch, cold-call tactics that promised a rather outrageous 2-to-1 return based on ticket sales.
    Pity any poor suckers who got taken in by that scheme, because so far it appears that Playground Festival has attracted about as many people as might fit into the Grove in Anaheim. No wonder the Game was a no-show. Rumor is he actually turned up, but once he saw how few people were on the grassy field adjacent to Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, he split. (Too $hort supposedly did the same earlier in the day.)
    Probably didn’t help that Game’s set time was pushed up to 7 p.m., a result of Irvine police insisting that the fest be cleared out by the time the Pacific Symphony Orchestra’s performance next door at Verizon was underway. Hardly surprising, then, that the rap star with the No. 1 disc in the country (The R.E.D. Album bumped off Jay-Z & Kanye West’s Watch the Throne in its first week of release) would bolt from such a disorganized mess."

Big Sean came thru tho and he even thought it was a mess lol i hope this dosent happen again
