    nothing gross about it Cara, it's the way the promoter has hyped the prior fests (LA Skyline! Go Metro! etc) so I'm looking at what angle is being pushed. So far none that I can see, but it's still 6 months away so I'm willing to wait. Here are my concerns though.

    The area around there has few public transportation options (buses), no restaurants/bars within walking distance, and the commute, while actually closer to me, I can tell will be tough. It's like the massives that get thrown in San Bernardino, it's off a suburban freeway exit that doesn't support 25K people trying to get to the same spot within a certain window.

    So if dillycup or anyone else thinks that the points I'm bringing up are not valid, please let me hear your point of view instead of calling someone a "hater".

    I will say that I always have fun at the event and I want it to succeed, but they are going to need a LOT of logistics planning to pull the bigger event they are promising. Maybe that's where the LiveNation money will come in handy.

    Oops...this really belongs in the HARD Summer thread, but oh well. I'm looking forward to FYF, if it ends up in downtown, then we can compare the relative success and failures of these fests that both got bigger at LA Historic Park and are now experimenting with new locations.

    totally fair, i wasnt speaking of FYF logistics. i was just responding to you saying at least it wasnt whittier.
    if that statement was purely about fest logistics, then i misinterpreted it thinking you were speaking of purely the city of whittier and how you thought it was not a good place for FYF or living. not defending the city, just wanted someones take on why it would be bad.

    once more for good measure, logistics

    I'm hoping it'll be near City Hall/Grand Park. Anyone recall that in 2011 it was originally going to take place there? It then got moved back to LA State Historic Park.

    Found this from an old article:
    "Improvements include a new location near City Hall in downtown L.A., additional entrances (with a separate entrance for VIP and press), better (and cheaper, healthier, more abundant) food options, and water."

    The person you are replying to is the person that started the thread you just linked to, which he created 3 days ago, when the announcement was made.

    Not one single person said that to you. One person said "who said it would be at Whittier Narrows?" and he said "o rly."

    And then it was announced and he started a thread about it. And then 43 days later your showed him his own thread.

    Well, it seems kind of silly to get into an argument about this (especially since I generally respect your posts) but I interpreted replies by Oddzilla, supefan and ficklecycle as skepticism of what I knew to be true. I guess you interpreted those replies differently. If I was wrong, I'm sorry. And I'm not sure what 43 days later refers to. He posted his thread Monday. Hope to see you at FYF, for which I don't know the venue.

    New NIN/Soundgarden/Death Grips tour dates have them in Irvine on the 22nd and the Bowl on the 25th. Nine Inch Nails would have been a hell of a headliner.

    Want it to be where HARD Sunmmer is going to be at? Out in El Monte?


    And if its there, good. Theres space to have a stage or two on grass. And it would all the area surrounding the coliseum and sports arena. If anyone remembers how it was set up for Odd Future Carnival last year, EDC in 2010 and Warped Tour in 2002 , then you get the idea.

    HARD Summer this year is going to be held at Whittier Narrows.

    And I have no problem with this being held near the Coliseum. It's very accessible by train on the expo line. It's definitely more of a pain in the butt for me personally since I live 2 stops away from Chinatown on the Gold Line but this will be pretty simple for most people to manage transferring from the Red line to the Expo.
