    As stated above. Yeah, he made fake passes and re sold em. Obviously he was caught, and they were able to find his social media accounts and fuck him over. I would assume he got arrested also.

    Only thing I could think of was that he decided to copy the eventbrite print outs that you needed after shipping wasnt available. And like an idiot he either used his own email or phone to contact people on craigslist or even fb and then shit hit the fan. Wonder how much money he even made.

    Should have indicated that this is the headline and a link with the details to the story. Just thought it was a creative way to call out scalpers/people trying to sneak in.

    Welp...

    “I am an Uber driver in Houston.
    Today I picked up 3 gentlemen Who seemed very rich and they were talking about business deals.
    One of them asked to the other "did day for night hurt our bottom line?"
    The other replied " day for night was a huge financial failure. I own 50 percent and it's a shame you cant dissolve a festival.. theres no way to liquidate... I made no money last year.. too many tickets sold at cost" I'm not sure what he owns 50 percent of... they sounded like shareholders or investors...
    It's hard for me to tell you word-for-word I'm not sure exactly what they were saying but it was clear to me that there were saying that day for night is not happening this year.
    said to each other do not broadcast this this can't get out yet.. The one guy was angry that he talked about it in the uber.”

    Hopefully it was the dick tip I had an encounter with over his overly drunk and loud wife who wouldnt keep quiet during Thom Yorke, then threatened to kick me out because ''he runs the show'' if I didnt turn around and mind my own business. Yes, it sucks, but fuck that guy.

    Just a rumor according to a DFN employee. Could be lying I suppose, though.

    Hey y'all. DFN is not going away. We are having too much fun. Our festival and every other festival in the region was surely hurt by Hurricane Harvey last year but we are going nowhere.

    I mean, that's good to hear... but hurricane harvey was what - late august? apart from maybe hampering some local ticket sales if people lost money I don't see how that would have had a major effect on a festival four months later

    Harvey was the most costly and damaging hurricane in US history ($125 billion) and took months to clean up.

    You’re nuts if you think this had no effect on the festival.

    Omar is the creator. He's also an asshole who has a hard time paying his staff.

    "To prove I’m really omar, I’m gonna post on DFN Facebook rn one of my fave DFN moments with the hashtag #reallyme"

    Well, that's that.

    Anyway, I'm going to be sad if the Chemical Brothers aren't there since they'll be in Mexico a few weeks prior.

    Also, Fever Ray?

    Didn't Kraftwerk do a big tour a few years back here in the U.S.? They played Kansas City.
    We're here to play some Mississippi Delta Blues. We're in a horrible depression, and I gotta admit - we're starting to like it.

    Yep. They sold out two shows at a 3k venue here in Austin.

    Also, joyrider mentioned they were trying to get Gorillaz.

    When are we expecting the lineup again?

    Yeah, after their Catalouge shows they did a 3d tour and it went to plenty of places. Its a no braining to try and get them for this. And cant go this year anyway.

    Lemaitre has a US tour Nov 28 - Dec 15. Mostly west coast but last 2 dates Dec 13 and 15 in BOS/NYC, so Sunday open. Also playing ACL.

    They would be a good fit... put on a really fun, energetic live show and have new music coming out.

    Kate doesn’t fly so unless she does a full blown tour I don’t think she’s going to ride a cruise to play a one off unless it was Coachella

    FYI, sounds like this probably isn’t happening this year.

    Some posts on Inforoo are saying that no offers have been made to WME for artists and that it sounded like the whole thing was up in the air. Could be funding that hasn’t been secured yet but this far in already, I’m guessing it’s not happening.
