Statement Regarding Riot Fest & Sideshow in Denver, Colorado

Before I begin what will probably be a long-winded concerto of a statement, it has to be stated with deafening clarity that we wanted to make Byers, Colorado our home for Riot Fest for years to come. It’s a community we care about tremendously, just like Humboldt Park, in Chicago and just to pack up and watch the town disappear in our rear window is not an option.

In just over a year, we became part of the May Family and Gary, Stacie and their children became part of ours… the relationship is beyond normal kinship. And, I wish I wasn’t hunting for words in describing the bond between our two families — a perfectly succinct account for the fans. But, it’s hard enough writing about the Mays and the deeper I dig to find words, the harder it becomes to explain. There’s no defense mechanism for this one to hide or bury inside a wrinkle… I’m just tremendously sad.

At the same time, I am utterly incensed. Elementary ideological forces and manipulation veiled in contradictory legal jargon prevented us from coming back to May Farms this year. Simply, we were duped. Certain groups, residents and so forth did not want YOU or US in their town, and there is something morally dishonest and unforgiveable with their actions. Sean and I, along with our partners at Soda Jerk Presents, have been mum throughout this entire ordeal, but that will stop today. We have officially filed an appeal with Arapahoe County as of this morning and, needless to say, we are doing this because we are in the right. I cannot fathom that in 2014 certain social mores grounded in revulsion and irrationality, of course, by a limited howling few, can inflict such harm in a town or in a county. It’s disgusting and these people should feel ashamed. I will refrain from commenting any more on these matters, but, with complete conviction and certitude, more will come to light and all fans will know what precisely transpired.

To continue, we were essentially tossed out of Byers and after visiting several sites during our week here, we decided on Mile High. After much thought about the pros and cons about moving to the stadium versus other venues, the fact that the stadium is willing to allow us to transform their grounds and recreate Byers and May Farms swayed our decision. There are hundreds of agricultural towns across the U.S. who are struggling for survival, dismissed by their neighbors and political representatives at a state and federal level. There is no glossing this over… Byers is not an economically robust town. In parts, it’s certainly poor. And would Riot Fest be the end-all-be-all to save this town economically? Of course not. This takes multiple businesses and forward thinkers to take this kind of risk. We were up for that risk, because it’s evident we’d sell more tickets in Denver proper. But that’s not what Riot Fest is…. And it never will be. People thought we were crazy for choosing Humboldt Park in Chicago, but we knew we were right. Fast-forward three-years later, Humboldt is fast becoming its own economic engine … and we are proud to be a part of that rehabilitation. The thing is that we never wanted to change ideological mindsets in Byers – that’s not our job and no side will ever win. However, we whole-heartedly believed that we could have been a preamble for growth, and, in turn, help the town be heard for real and legitimate concerns: infrastructure.

Now, to the Riot fan base. I’m sorry for all of this and I thank you for standing alongside us. Sean and I, along with our partners at Soda Jerk Presents, will be forever grateful to all of you. And even after the curtain closes this year, I know I will look back on these last few weeks and smile because our Riot fans stood alongside us. The biggest apology to the fans goes to the people who were planning on or purchased camping. Obviously, camping refunds will be processed today, but, I know that isn’t enough and neither is an apology. You guys, above everyone, bought into Riot Fest and the experience we were providing in Colorado. I will find a way to make this up to you in the next few weeks. I promise.

With all of that said, I’d like to thank the residents and businesses of Byers, Strasburg and the surrounding areas. Your letters of support have not been overlooked. More importantly, I’d like to apologize to the youth of Byers. I know many of you are disappointed and outright angry, but please do not shun or mistreat anyone for the decision that was made. Community is based on divergent opinions and backgrounds and knowing that will guide you through any irrationality that may come your way in the future. When I was a teenager, music and lyrics guided me and helped me discover the world outside of Blasdell, New York. So, I will leave you with the following lyrics that helped me become the person I am today:

Be exactly who you want to be, do what you want to do
I am he and she is she but you’re the only you
No one else has got your eyes, can see the things you see
It’s up to you to change your life and my life’s up to me
The problems that you suffer from are problems that you make
The sh** we have to climb through is the sh** we choose to take
If you don’t like the life you live, change it now it’s yours
Nothing has effects if you don’t recognize the cause
If the program is not the one you want, get up, turn off the set
It’s only you that can decide what life you’re gonna get

The fact of the matter is that even in this day and age, ignorance resides and the words “Riot Fest” unfoundedly scares people. Punk rock still scares people. Intelligence and wit scares people. And we all know if we were named Good Ole Country Riot Fest, we would have never been in this situation.

Your grateful chum,
Riot Mike

  1. You can make up for it by getting Jane’s Addiction to play Nothing’s Shocking in Denver too! ;)

  2. Thank you for fighting the good fight, Mike. I’m personally appreciative of the extra effort you’ve put in to make this event happen – despite the hurdles. The Rev. Shaw Moores of Byers DO NOT represent all of us here in Colorado. Thanks again and we’ll see you in September!

  3. Well written. It’s too bad a few narrow-minded, short-sighted fools can derail the cultural and economic benefit this would have brought to Byers.

  4. If you are sorry then refund tickets to those who also purchased camping. We were going because my father who is older would be able to come and go from camping to the gig as he felt able to. The whole value of the gig to us was the in/out and nearby camping. Now it is impossible for my Pops to go. If your sorry then show it by offering refunds to those who bought camping and vip tix. The VIP means nothing to those who bought them now. In/out in a stadium is worthless.

    • Mister Mike did specifically said that refunds would be processed today and that even further measures would be taken as an apologetic action…

    • Dear Dave,

      If after reading that post from Riot Mike you still feel the need to sound like a bratty little spoiled 10 year old, then I pity you and your father who has to watch you act like a child. Nothing is perfect in life and this fest is doing everything it can to accommodate the masses. Nothing is impossible and if your father has any sort of punk spirit left in him, he’ll figure out a way to still enjoy the fest.

    • Hey Dave,
      Please read the entire message before spewing your anger. He said camping would be refunded. Sorry about your pops but they’re doing the best that they can in a shitty manipulated situation. Your frustration needs to be redirected.

      • The post says *camping* tickets are being refunded. Dave wants his *festival* tickets refunded because it’s no longer feasible for him to go. I’m still going despite the lack of camping, but I don’t blame him – the venue change makes the festival very different from the one that was advertised when most of us bought tickets.

    • If you read this letter, you would know that they are still trying to figure everything out and that refunds are already in motion. The riot fest team is obviously working very hard to please a lot of fans who are ready to have a good time. They are sorry, as said many times. Patience is a virtue that a lot of us lack, including myself. Attacking these people is not the way to get answers. That being said, Thank you Riot Fest and Soda Jerk Presents for all that you do for us fans!

    • “Obviously, camping refunds will be processed today, but, I know that isn’t enough and neither is an apology.”

      Take a second to read before you attack. They’re doing what they can to right a wrong situation. Don’t be so harsh. It’s clearly a crappy situation for everyone.

    • Did you even read the statement? “Camping refunds will be processed today.” It says it right there.

    • I agree with Dave wholeheartedly. If Mike and Soda Jerk were truly sorry they would offer FULL refunds on ALL tickets to people who do not want to go to a completely different experience than they originally purchased. Being in an open field, listening to great music and being able to go back to my camper whenever I wanted to get away from crowds VS Being herded in and out of a hot asphalt parking lot and stadium and having to find lodging for three days plus now we will be fighting with thousands of other people just to get a cab back to said lodging. To the people that commented on Dave’s reading comprehension I suggest you work on your own. He is speaking of a FULL refund as am I. Not just for camping because as I explained earlier this is a completely different product than was originally sold. So to Riot Mike and Soda Jerk, I understand this was out of your hands and the fault lies with a gaggle of rednecks on a city council. That being said, you should probably have all your ducks in a row BEFORE you sell something that you can’t deliver on. If you truly want to make it up to fans… Offer FULL Refunds. You fucked up, now bite the bullet prove you are not just another greedy corporate cog in the machine and act like what this festival is supposed to represent. C’mon Mike do the right thing. PS- I also think it is pretty low ball to have your employees on here posing as regular people to side with you and talk you up.

  5. I love this statement so much.

    Although I hadn’t bought tickets for this year’s festivities–great lineup, but let’s face it: college is expensive and so is food–I’ve been so stoked about Riot Fest going down in Byers. My senior prom was held at Mayfarms, I graduated from Strasburg, and there really is a great community along the corridor.
    Thank you, Riot Mike, for realizing the good in our little ag towns, but for also demanding justice. I sure wish I had been at the town hall meetings to hear the legalities that y’all are raging over! Seriously, power to you guys.
    Thanks for making this Fest happen no matter what! Last year was one of my greatest show memories of all time!

  6. This change in venue is unfortunate but can be overcome. There are hotels near the stadium that are within walking distance for those who were camping as a substitute. It is not close to the same thing I know, but it is the best that can be done. The organizers of riot fest did not intend for this to happen and I am sure will do their best to accommodate those who can’t or won’t go due to these changes. I fully intend on going and already have rooms at a hotel nearby. I wish I could camp like last year but am stil extremely excited for this year’s festival.

  7. I was honestly surprised when I heard that Arapahoe county denied your permits to be here in Byers. Personally I want to thank you for honoring the names of the business here in Byers despite the negativity towards your concert from a few disgruntled residents. I hope you win your appeal, I’d love to have you back in Byers next year and for years to come.

  8. What an insane amount of work for you to rearrange this. Did the powers-that-be have any idea that the median age of “Riot Festers” is 40? I mean really. I might have pink hair, but I also have a Masters degree and own a home. Way to reinforce stereotypes of the rural yokel, Byers. I am sorry for the openminded and educated population which lives under these fools. May I never have to leave Chicago.

  9. I agree with Dave. Myself and 2 other old high school friends have purchased VIP and rv camping packages. The whole purpose of this experience was to be able to return to my rv during/after show. The whole experience is going to be completely different now. The headliners are great for this show, but not enough for me to drive 12 hours (19 hours for one if my buddies going, coming from San Antonio) for the music alone. I mean, we’ve all seen most of these bands already, but the camping, outdoor festival atmosphere has been very much compromised. Going to this type of show in a stadium is the same as every other show now. Just lasts for 3 days that’s the only difference. Huge disappointment. WHY, WHY, WHY couldn’t have you guys picked another venue at another farm perhaps something that offered camping, and some mountains!

  10. While there is obviously fallout that still needs to be sorted, particularly regarding refund structures, I would just like to note that I’m very impressed at the speed and classiness with which Riot Fest has responded to this situation. I see fine, fast (REALLY fast) problem-solving and overall great PR. You guys deserve at least one compliment for it in the midst of the inevitable complaints.

  11. I have property in Byers and showed up at the meeting and fought to keep you guys in town. I was supposed to have tickets waiting for me through may farms. Will those still be waiting for me at the new venue or will I be forced to buy tickets? Thanks for everything you guys do and keeping us informed

  12. I agree with Dave. Any and all tickets purchased should absolutely be refunded in full to those who want a refund. Is RiotFest not allowing these refunds? I still plan on going to the show in Denver although being in a crowded sports stadium with this many bands is definitely not ideal at all. And the prices paid for the tickets should at least be reduced due to the venue change. The Byers trip was more of short vacation away from the city, taking off work for it, etc. Paying that much for tickets was worth it for that reason. Now? Not so much.

  13. I had the most amazing time camping at riot fest last year. I met tony from soda jerk, and a ton of great people. I was able to enjoy some shows from the campsite, as others from the stages. The ability to come and go for the shows, eat my food, and drink my beer was a huge bonus from a dollars and cents perspective, and made the weekend affordable for a lot us. I’m not sure I want to go to punk show at a football stadium, presumably with no re-entry, and shell out $12 for a beer, and $10 for a hot dog, since we’re damn sure that mile high holds the exclusive rights to food and drink sales, and licking their chops with glee at the f&b revenue. I’m truly disappointed, and I doubt that I’ll be buying tickets for this years event. Hopefully you guys can return to a festival spot next year, rather than a 3 day stadium show.

  14. ^^ This Dave guy sounds like a douche… give him his money back so, he can go back to picking his ass somewhere else.

    • Alan, did you read the post? Dave is asking for a full refund on his dad’s ticket, not just the camping.

  15. You sure can write pretty. Know what about those of us that paid almost twice as much for our VIP tickets? What will be done for us?

  16. Yeah this is some sh*t. You are selling something I didn’t purchase. Not interested in chilling in a parking lot for three days at all. Should have had things more secure, maybe not sel tix 5 months ahead of time, maybe when you know what the hell is going on. Should have found a more similar venue. Refund VIP and refunds to whoever doesn’t want to go now.

  17. Thank you so much Riot Mike and the whole Riot Fest crew. Am I disappointed I won’t be able to camp… sure… but as a grown man with responsibilities and a job in the real world I know that situations change and you need to adapt to them. I’ve adjusted my plans, got my entire group rooms at The Curtis (which I think is going to be a lot like the ‘Riot House’ from Almost Famous) and I am super-stoked to see this show. I’m sure this whole nonsense about VIP tickets (which I have) will be cleared up, honestly I bought them because I spent my time crowded in the pit when I was a kid and being in my early-40′s I want the clear sight-lines, the seating, the shade, and the bottled water. Not sure why everyone is complaining. Keep up the good work and keep on rockin’ in the free world.

    • I’m with you, Colin. SH$t happens. It’s how we choose to react to it that matters. My best friend and I are flying in for this show, and had already spent quite a bit on flights hotel, etc. My pit days are long gone, and I’m sure they figure out the new VIP situation, logistically. I’d say we’re lucky that the show’s still going forward, and this crew cares enough to make that happen. Just my 2 cents.

  18. I’m with Dave. Clearly everyone that thinks he’s bitching must have 2 perfectly working arms and 2 unbroken legs, no PTSD, and must NOT have gone to Woodstock ’99. The fact that this is going to be at Mile High means it’s going to suck. Unless you really enjoy buying $15 beers. Fuck Peyton Manning and Fuck RIOTFEST…

  19. fucking whiners. what happened to going to shows to support the bands and the scene? all you fucks do nowadays is bitch and moan like a bunch of spoiled bitches. besides, anyone who demands vip treatment at a punk show is a fucking douche.

  20. If you need to talk to someone about your individual issue this is clearly not the right place to do so, you simpletons.

    No one cares about your dad or your high school buddies.

    There are some really clueless people posting here.

  21. First, Gary and Stacie May are awesome people. The issue is not about them. However, our land, our animals, our families, our road systems, our small towns are not equipped to take on a population of more than 5x what we have in a three day period. Homes 10+ miles away were impacted by noise, animals were running through fences due to noise. In addition this did NOT impact our store in a positive way, we purchased extra feeling we would have a lot of customers and this did not happen. Also, the road ways were bogged down and those who lived here could not move. Finally, the local fire and rescues departments were overwhelmed with ambulance calls and car accidents – these are volunteer departments and they are not prepared to managed 15thousand people. This article makes it sound like Byers is a poor community that cannot survive without them. There are multi million dollar farms, many very successful and long standing businesses that are doing just fine and are not in danger of closing. This town has been this small for a very long time. There is a nice area at the Arapahoe County Fair grounds that would be really nice and could provide camping.

    • I have been struggling with this because I don’t want to offend anyone. However the word overwhelmed offended me. I appriciate everyone’s concerns for the emergency resources, I would like to ask that everyone stop using the Fire Department as a tool either in support of or opposed to this. The fact is they responded to all the calls in their district and assisted 2 other agency’s that weekend. Volunteers did just that, they volunteered to be there. If you want to help applications are available at 100 N Main St. In Byers on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month, as well as anytime a member is at the station.

  22. I have a 3400 acre ranch in CO with plenty of utilities I would gladly “donate” for the venue. Bring one bring all!

  23. I didn’t buy camping tickets. But I want a refund for the show tickets because I didn’t plan of going to a festival in a parking lot next to a highway full of vehicles racing by. The ticket said Byers, not Federal Blvd/I-25. Because this is a major change, the organizers should offer EVERYONE refunds. What do you say Riot Mike?

  24. Kind of glad the fest will be in Denver I ride the bus everywere so I would not have been able to make it to Byers cause of no bus route now I can make it to the festival so cool beans but camping would have been cool to and to Dave your a crybaby and for those high school kids if you have a r.v. park it in the parking lot or on the street posers.

  25. Hey I think Its kinda cool that riot fest is in denver cause I take the bus everywere I go and byers has no bus route and I live in boulder so now i can go when before i couldnt I can take the bus straight there so cool beans and on behalf of all the punx I say to dave your a turd and to the rich high school brats coming from texas probably odessa or midland wipe the snot off your noses and park your r.v. in the parking lot or side of the street its still worth the trip.

  26. So I’ve got a lot of love for what Mike had to say. And I gotta lot of love for Byers even if I was only able to spend one weekend in that town a year ago. Dave’s also very right despite all the shit he has taken for speaking his opinion. Yes, it has been stated that the camping/RV tickets will be reimbursed, but, if the only reason you were attending was because you couldn’t afford to buy food and drinks inside of the festival or, are not capable (physically or financially) of being in a venue for 12 hours without the ability to come and go from your camp spot than you deserve to be able to have not only your camping pass refunded, but to have tickets for the festival refunded. I will be attending, and while I’m incredibly disappointed that a better option wasn’t chosen or available, I am thrilled I did not lose the opportunity to see this lineup. As more comes to light it’s incredibly possible that we us that are disappointed (or down right angry) will have new things brought to light to ease the pain. I know Chicago has some incredible after shows and with the amount of available venues in metro Denver it’s possible you’ll have the opportunity to see your favorite band at the fest play in an intimate setting late night. Truth be told I’d be at this show regardless of the venue. What needs to happen is constant shuttles available to the downtown area for those who choose to imbibe in alcohol or marijuana or whatever so we don’t have a plethora of impaired drivers trying to make it to and from hotels. Also, shuttles need to be made available to and from Byers for anyone who has previously committed to a hotel in the area. Re-entry needs to be allowed due to circumstances for everyone this year. I can’t afford $12 meals for me and my girl 3 times a day for three days and hadn’t financially planned for it with all the other shows I have already purchased tickets to. And I sure as hell can’t afford drink prices to be able to drink and be at a show for twelve hours. I need a place where I can park for three days and leave food and beverage in a cooler. If you’re struggling for cash and need to make hotel accommodations we always stay at the 16th Avenue Hotel and Hostel. A private room is $59 a night. They have dormitory style rooms for much cheaper. I know it’s not the same experience we were expecting by a long shot but at least it’s happening. If tickets aren’t refunded I am sure we will have a whole lot of Denver locals who were previously unable to attend that would be happy to take tickets off your hands at face value. See you in the pits.

  27. Susan stills I don’t know what business you own in byers but it must suck because my families business seen a significant amount benefit from riot fest last year and we cater to the farming and ranching members of this community. Further morey family has been here for 5 generations I am country through and through and I support punk rock music and what it stands for because I hate hippocrates and socialists who think its there job to tell us how to live. LET US HAVE OUR FUN!!!!!!!

  28. Everyone needs to calm down about area issues, if you think 15,000 people is too much, then try Tomorrowland for example, a massive festival live-up more stages, and way more people, can the neighbours surrounding the festival cope, yes, where are their houses, some in the midst of the festival, some just outside, but they enjoy the company, who are we to judge byers of the area,

    but they all have their rights and so do we, it’s not like a concert sized project x, it’s a controlled festival and has many rules which keeps the community safe.

    Sure mike is giving refunds on only camping, to the ones that want a full refund, ensure that there are at least 5,000 people with camping tickets, after that or halfway through there will most likely be a full refund. this commenting and hate needs to stop, It’s the hate and bad remarks and feedback that makes festivals stop. but that would make life boring only having clubs and stereos/headphones,

    lets face the facts,

    Area change isn’t bad, if you cannot handle that, Wait patiently or at least contact the riotfest crew after camping ticket refunds, it will make things run more steadily.

  29. Ive never heard of this festival but after reading the story Awesome job by this Mike guy to throw a freaking music fest togeather at the last minute. Ive helped with small ones and with months planning,meetings ect. Im amazed in so short of time he saved it. Take it from someone that has to drive 8 hours for ANY concert be thankful for what you can get. And before you whine try to run one of these fest and see how you feel when months or a year of planning is ruined in a few moments

  30. I have to agree with ‘I bought a ticket for something I’m not getting’. While I appreciate all the hard work put into this festival, I really do, but a parking lot in downtown Denver (look at the map people, it’s in the parking lot, not the stadium) is not the same. I just live a couple miles from the stadium and would have bought 2 single day tickets (Sorry, but Sundays lineup isn’t worth an extra $60, just my opinion) but since I was camping I went ahead and bought the 3 day pass…it was more of a vacation/experience than just the 3 days of music it is now. There should be refunds available, plain and simple.
    Either way, it’ll be a great weekend of music, just a very different experience. And I can’t see any way that they won’t have re-entry, again, hanging in the parking lot will be very different than the camping area but at least can drink and eat on the cheap.

  31. I agree with Dave wholeheartedly. If Mike and Soda Jerk were truly sorry they would offer FULL refunds on ALL tickets to people who do not want to go to a completely different experience than they originally purchased. Being in an open field, listening to great music and being able to go back to my camper whenever I wanted to get away from crowds VS Being herded in and out of a hot asphalt parking lot and stadium and having to find lodging for three days plus now we will be fighting with thousands of other people just to get a cab back to said lodging. To the people that commented on Dave’s reading comprehension I suggest you work on your own. He is speaking of a FULL refund as am I. Not just for camping because as I explained earlier this is a completely different product than was originally sold. So to Riot Mike and Soda Jerk, I understand this was out of your hands and the fault lies with a gaggle of rednecks on a city council. That being said, you should probably have all your ducks in a row BEFORE you sell something that you can’t deliver on. If you truly want to make it up to fans… Offer FULL Refunds. You fucked up, now bite the bullet prove you are not just another greedy corporate cog in the machine and act like what this festival is supposed to represent. C’mon Mike do the right thing. PS- I also think it is pretty low ball to have your employees on here posing as regular people to side with you and talk you up.

  32. Trupp park in Bennett next year haha ; ) pretty sure that’s Adams County! Guaranteed bennett would support it! Loved the letter, said just right and totally felt the vibe you were putting out, you can only do so much and that was just enough. Good luck in mile high, I love the stadium layout of May Farms!! Boo to Byers non supporters, they’re just old farts who are trying to hide their drugged out children.

  33. I am angry that a limited number of people in Byers can have so much of an influence, though it doesn’t surprise me. It’s an example of what is wrong in our society. Riot Mike is what a class act should be. Thank you Riot Mike.
    For myself though, having health issues, the move has made it possible for me to attend. Bittersweet :P

  34. I would have to say that the event has fundamentally changed. If you had moved it to a new similar location that had camping and space, I would say it might not be a requirement to give refunds to those desiring one. But since the whole thing has been transported to an asphalt parking lot next to a stadium, it’s just not what you sold to customers. I bought tickets because I knew we could camp and go in and see the band’s we wanted to and then walk a few hundred yards back. It’s why I bought VIP tickets. Doesn’t feel anywhere close to what I was excited about.

  35. “You guys, above everyone, bought into Riot Fest and the experience we were providing in Colorado.”

    That sentence sums it up Mike… Yes, we bought into it… Exactly as you say. So there’s no way you can not give refunds in good conscience (or legally) after that sentence.

  36. Since camping was to be offered, and now isn’t, I hope that the festival will allow the participants to exit and reenter as they see fit.

    Important to say here, they festival should allow the participants to bring in their own food. By camping, we would have been able to head back to our sights for dinner and lunch. This certainly is not a possibility anymore, and I feel that if we are not allowed to bring our own food into the venue, then we will be severely cheated. Please give me a comment to let me know that we will be able to bring out own food into the venue.

  37. Also awesome is nowhere in that huge statement does it say “sorry guys… I shouldn’t have sold you tickets without having a venue set”… It’s all everyone else’s fault except Mike’ and Riotfest management. Way to take responsibility for putting us all in this situation. And if you have so much respect for us, why don’t you respond to any of these comments or emails?

  38. Great words.. May I suggest booking the Huntingtons in the future? Best Ramones-core band ever!

  39. “because it’s evident we’d sell more tickets in Denver proper”

    … Shouldn’t be any big deal to refund those that want them then…

  40. Total bummer, was really looking forward to this but will no longer attend. Let’s face it the whole atmosphere and energy will be different. This is the same thing that happened to warped tour and lets just say that it sucks the big one now. Sports authority field is a terrible venue, who want’s to be in the middle of the city on hot pavement sucking in smog all day. NO THANKS

  41. FULL REFUNDS FOR DENVER!! Don’t be the greedy corporate scum you pretend to hate. I bought and paid for a BJ, I don’t want the dry hand job you are trying to pass off as the same thing, we all know it’s not. Give us our money back you fucks. Keep burying these posts, you fuckin cowards!

  42. I am truly proud of the way your organization has handled this disappointing situation, it’s very unfortunate a select few can ruin things for everyone. Can’t wait to see the Cure!!! Kiss me Kiss me Kiss me was the very first cd I ever bought back in 1987, Thank you for the opportunity to see them!

    @ Mike
    No and I emailed regarding the line up a while back and I have not received a reply. :(

  43. Primus, Sublime w/ Rome, Dropkick Murphy’s, Violent Femmes, Rise Against, The Cure, Weezer doing their 20 yr old album as is NOFX, the Buzzcocks and an opportunity to see dozens of other bands I have never even heard of. Wow! Soda Jerk and Riot Mike all I can say is THANK YOU!!! As you know you will never be able to make everyone happy, c’est la vie. To give me a chance to see these acts perform and bring my 15 year old boy along for a mere $300 each is SAWEET! It would cost us just as much to see three of the aforementioned acts at Red Rocks, 1st Bank Center, or Pepsi Center. I am so grateful to you because I would never be able to afford to personally attend, or to experience together, or to expose my boy to such talent separately. That would cost thousands of dollars I just don’t have right now. We (my son and I) are going to relish this event even if you moved it to the Moon or Mars. It is going to be something (I’m sure!) we will remember going to for the rest of our lives. Good luck to you on making EVERYONE else happy, and for all your hard work and effort putting this lineup together I can only say again THANK YOU!!!!….”Let there be songs to fill the air”-JG
