    I would think AWS would be at High Dive because of the capacity. 2years ago they played mystery set at High Dive. Those are my scientific pontifications...ha

    Bringin the ruckus

    Hope everyone had a great time and gets home safely! That Laura Jane Grace set on Sunday was so epic that I may never recover.

    Another great Fest! Can't wait until next year

    Some highlights: Such Gold, Joyce Manor, Kill Lincoln, No Trigger, The Dopamines, The Bronx

    Worst part was waiting 90 mins for the Spanish Love Songs secret set and being cut off right at the front of the line

    Also secret sets were pretty weak this year

    Don't recreate the scene, or reinvent the meanings Supporter

    I knew Kill Lincoln would be a fun set, but I did not expect it to be a top five set of the weekend.

    Amazing time, and now I'm in recovery mode. Definitely agree that the mystery sets were weak overall compared to past years...Friday's mystery sets were lit though. Unfortunately, I had a pretty bad headache Friday night which is also why none of my favorite sets were from Friday. Brain is still a little fuzzy, but I think my top 5 sets I caught were, Spanish Love Songs (8 Seconds), Kill Lincoln, The Bronx, Skatune Network (Sunday), S.M.N.

    Hi. This was quite a while ago, but I hope everyone had a great time at FEST 18.

    I was supposed to fly over from the UK to perform. I was booked at the CMC on the Sunday, same stage as Laura Jane Grace, which I was incredibly excited for, her being such a great influence and inspiration, as a person as well as a musician/songwriter. It would've been my third year in a row visiting & playing, first time coming over solo (I previously played the last two years with my band Hora Douse at Loosey's). Unfortunately, I suffered a nervous breakdown in early October (it had been building for quite a while), and I was forced into hospital, and then a home care/crisis team for a while. Had to cancel all of my life plans, including this US trip + more, despite everything being booked. I felt so devastated and isolated, I haven't really said much about it until now.

    I just wanted to vent, as I had looked forward to so many things over the weekend, such as the Skatune Network show, and seeing so many Stateside/world friends I don't often get to see.

    If ok to share, to make up for my lack of appearance, this was my last release, from an EP I released just before my meltdown. Disclaimer, it probably would've been the quietest & un-punkest thing at FEST. (Feel free to delete if not allowed), and thanks for paying attention. Hopefully I can come back next year.

    Hey Tommy, glad you are in better head space now. And don't you ever say un-punkest, if you are being yourself then that is all you ever have to be. Let's hope that we can rage together to Skatune at FEST 19
