I am going to cut to the chase here and get to the heart of the matter.
I believe what Bob is trying to convey is that the headliners were probably not worth their cost.
While that would be true if this was just a one of random show,as I said, it's about the whole package.
I too agree that if the direct support and headliner flip flopped on any day of the Fest the same damn thing would have happened. It is a fact city or suburbs that once the midnight hour approaches people head for their cars. It happened last year and we predicted it to happen this year and it did.
