Also, it was a pleasure meeting everyone that I got the chance to this weekend! I totally forget everyone's names, but it was a pleasure nonetheless.

The polar bear costume dude was there? I remember him from 2012...

Statement. I'm thinking this sounds like it will stay at the same site next year.
We would like to thank you for attending FYF Fest this weekend. Things started off on Saturday afternoon with a few problems, but felt by Sunday that everyone was having a great time. I hope that felt you the same way. One issue that did come up that we would like to address this moment is that security had all attendees throw away reusable water bottles at the entrance. This is our fault for not being clear with the wording on the website and the communication with our security team. In turn, we would like anyone that had their reusable water bottle thrown away to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are fixing one issue at a time and it is important that you, the fans know that we are acknowledging this. We have already begun planning for next year and are ready to make FYF Fest the best experience possible. And since it's “National Dog Day” I felt it's approriate to post a photo of my girl. Thank you again and see you next year. - Sean
He said more "statement" is coming later in the week (one post down on the FB page) - will be interesting to see what else they say.

yeah, he was responding to me calling him out. Unfortunately, every statement that does get made is going to be carefully worded PR garbage. They will never address the fact that they simply sold more tickets than the area was capable of handling.
I like how he posted a photo of his 2nd recent dog. Since his other died when his place went up in flames. Like 2nd time is a charm.

No, I should not blame the fire marshall. i should blame the people that don't care about the enjoyment of the people they are selling tickets to. I am talking about every single logistical thing about the festival that did work because of the amount of attendees there. It still seemed incredibly crowded on Sunday. I guarantee that if Saturday were exactly like Sunday, everybody would be plenty pissed about everything that happening, since they didn't have the alleviation of those really major problems to feel like a band-aid.

There's not much hate for Joyce Manor on this board, it's more people giving you a hard time because you mention that they're your favorite band every single time you come into this thread. Glad the set was good though.
Caribou and Darkside will be streaming live here later: http://boilerroom.tv/session/dimensi...ening-concert/
Photos and such. Hope you like em.
