    I heard this is the last chance to put together a decent festival or it's going to be back at the Echoplex in 2014.

    If it's true that it only sold 75 percent of tickets, I can see this being a one day festival again. The fact it didn't sell out with the lineup FYF had, is a bit worrisome.

    I think moving this festival to another weekend instead of Labor Day weekend would be beneficial for next year if they want to increase the number of ticket sales!

    A huge part of the appeal is that it's on Labor Day weekend. They may need to consider "bigger" headliners, but then the price would go up again. I think a part of what hurt sales was the price hike. I found my ticket stub for 2010 the other day, and I paid 25 dollars for that ticket. That is a lot more than what this year cost. Single day event, or find a way to keep it at 60-80 dollars. Even if that means less money on the top acts.

    Were sales really that bad? It seemed well sold to me, even if it wasn't completely full.

    That isn't even 75 percent. I know if I was running a festival, that wouldn't be good at all. I'm sure the reason it seemed full at the site was because of the amount of comps.

    The only thing keeping me from attending this is the date. For me, holiday weekends are for trips with family/friends.

    I’m curious about that 25,000 number. Can someone with more industry knowledge than I elaborate? Is that simply the approved capacity or the actual number of tickets intended to be sold?

    This year’s crowd fit the confines of the park quite well. To me, it sounds like last year’s price point was spot on to maximize revenue while not overcrowding.

    I liked that it was 2 day this year, it was nice not to have to worry about getting drunk and waiting to drive home at some ungodly hour in the morning like I did last year. Getting a hotel down the street was so convenient this time round. With those numbers, hopefully it doesn't mean going back to a one day affair.

    no industry knowledge here, but i would take the 25K as approved capacity.

    each event would have to submit their own applications for capacity limit permits based on their floor plans, etc, etc. I'm sure that capacity limits have gotten bigger at each event with the closure of street next to the park and the push further north into the upper end of the park. The first FYF at the park and the first HARD Summer floor plans and entrances were much different than they are today. Just like Coachella, the promoters will find ways to (hopefully) improve the experience while being able to sell more tickets (and make more money).

    If SHM has a plan to cram 35K in that park, more power to them. I just hope they get the logistics right and it doesn't turn into some Steve Aoki-style mad slaughterhouse where people get trampled on and/or thrown in front of an oncoming goldline train.

    ^^ that's actually great news for me. I skipped FYF this year because I didn't want to do two festivals (it and Hopscotch) in the same week. This way I can go to both.
