    That is a great deal considering Conor solo is 25, and Neko Case solo usually runs for about 30 bucks. I really like the lineup, and it should make for an awesome weekend.

    So I went to both days because I got tickets in the discounted pre sale. I have to say it was extremely fun and the crowd was super nice and chill. They set up the main stage on the pier plus they had vendors, beer garden, food sellers, etc there. And the second stage was in the carousel. It was cool, just with the carousel in there it did make viewing difficult for popular acts.

    They did offer free carousel rides in between the acts and they since you had to leave the main stage to get to the carousel there was unlimited ins and outs which was good because you could eat on the pier or walk into Santa Monica and come back.

    All in all it went smoothly except for some sound issues during Neko Case on Saturday.

    It was worth it but I would say they need more acts.
