    I only found out about PP about a month before XI. I've been coming back ever since.

    I'll 2nd (or is it 3rd?) that. I remember when we were sitting having lunch at Powermad, and Glenn said he could and would do this better. That was a understatement to say the least.

    Glenn, you continue to knock it out of the park year after year. Amazing Job bro!

    Thanks to you, and the entire PP staff/crew!

    but yeah,went to the last 2 Powermads..the seeds were sewn there,but holy clusterfuck and tire fire wth that festival

    Well, doing better than Powermad was a pretty low bar. Powermad was the definition of clusterfuck.

    Agreed. It would be interesting to see what the diehard vs. casual attendance split is. I suspect the board is made up of mostly diehards, so the split shown here is probably not representative of the overall fest.

    For me, I'm there for the music, not the social gathering (though that's fun and all). Each year I can take 2-3 trips with my PTO, so every year I'm weighing whether or not PP makes the cut for that year. I'm comfortable attending every 2-4 years, based on bands I want to see.

    I've been to the last 8 festivals, while being a Gold Badge holder for the past 6. Plan to keep going 'til the bitter end!

    Looks like I have been to 12. Missed first one and then two in a row. One because of my apartment fire. The fire made me miss the Conception year, still cursing the gods about that one.

    21 !

    No specific PP was included in the question, so it's legitimate to count all of 'm :kickass:


    PP Europe - 15
    PP USA - 4
    PP Scandinavia - 2

    ....and still counting ;)

    2003, 2004, 2006, 2007, 2009, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2014.
    I missed 2008 for health reasons and 2011 because work wouldn't give me the days off.
    Even though I don't like next years lineup as much as past years, as a gold badge holder I must go. Besides, I've started making friends that I must see every year. You, know, the ProgPower lure.
    The best lineups I think I ever saw were 2003 with Nightwish headlining and 2014. I'm going to sit here and revisit each year and put together my best memories from each fest. Watching the videos on youtube from this years really brings it all back for me. Pain of Salvation just destroyed! Blind Man from Voodoo Circle was probly my most memorable "guitar god" moment, and Jon Oliva is always an experience filled with so many emotions.
