Greetings fellow wizards. We have good news and bad news. Let me go ahead and get the bad news out of the way. Sooo, it looks like STUDIO 1212 will, unfortunately, no longer be a venue for this year's fest. Blame zoning issue and laws for that one, Jim McGuire and company are still awesome in our books. We want to thank them for being such awesome hosts for the previous two fests. Life goes on and we adjust.
Milestone and Snug Harbor will be picking up the burden and we really appreciate their hard work. Obviously this will make it hard to walk from Snug Harbor to Milestone but with a little bit of planning ahead and responsibility you can make it work out. The shows at Snug will be starting a little earlier (2pm-Saturday) and Milestone will be running earlier than they usually do.
Please be awesome to anyone who is a volunteer or working these long days. Tip well, give them hugs, and be helpful/supportive. They are working hard so you don't have to, be respectful!!! Lastly, we will be announcing the second round of bands for the fest in a couple weeks, so please stay tuned. Make sure you buy a ticket early, tickets will be going up on the day of (check tickets page for details)!!!
