    The facebook event has gotten an AMAZING amount of traction. I honestly highly recommend including all the Wednesday/Thursday information in the same event this year, that way everybody who accepted "yes" or "maybe" get the update - and it makes it easier for fans (especially new ones) to find the information, plus all around easier to promote. :)

    Largely in part to the advertising campaign Glenn and I shelled out money for to facebook and I have spent 8 hours glued to my laptop today getting the word out and striking while the iron is hot.

    We appreciate feedback, but we did this two years ago, and it confused and angered folks once they realized they had to purchase separate tickets. Folks felt mislead and also that we were false advertising.

    We go year by year on this. Clearly there's a lot of crossover appeal on this lineup. But outside of the core ProgPowerUSA audience, I think the bands that sell tickets we're going on the strength of Arch-era Fates Warning, Devin Townsend, and Scar Symmetry here.

    But the point isn't that the bands are good...it's getting the word out to people who may really want to see stuff like this, and might (for whatever reason) not be aware that it's happening. So share share share, and convince your friends to buy a ticket and go with you so they can see what this shit is all about!
