This lineup really bums me out. As much as I love GY!BE, they really don't have any place headlining this (and they're the best of the 3 headliners at that). What's happened to this fest...just look at how it started and where it is now. Zero edge remains.
Cloud Nothings / Lotus Plaza / Atlas Sound / Liturgy is a complete mess for me.
What I'm really thinking about, though, is how long are they going to let The Field play? Given that the Blue Stage is working until at least 9pm the first two nights, how unreasonable is it for me to hope that the Field gets over an hour?

who knows. But each show is going to reserve tickets at the door for p4k attendees. You show your wristband at the door and you get half off the show price.
Oh, nice. Thanks for that. I only went one day last year so this is my first opportunity to catch some of the post party madness all weekend. You going again this year? I'll be sure to take a picture of you for everyone here.
