This is the first time in 2 years that I am not going. Things didn't line up for me to go BUT...
To take us back a bit, last year was a little challenging. It rained that morning and was delayed 2 hours, it was super muddy and way over crowded. the views make it worth it, you're literally in the middle of the city. Being in the city is essentially being in a bowl... water from the floods rose the water in this area over 35 feet.
Elanor Tinsley park just endured a recent renovation so this is a little devastating. The saturated grounds won't recover in time to set up the stages and having hundreds of thousands of people shuffling away probably will not help. In coordination with the city the decision was made to move the event to NRG Park.... I'm not sure how you can catch the festival vibes from there, but I do know that FPSF has by far out grown Elanor. A change of Venue is still needed in the future, but the views from Elanor Tinsley are just awesome.
This week I have a festival fashion series for Free Press Summer Fest.
I'll be there in spirit. I wish Jack U would headline, Skrillex by himself is dope... and I love me some Major Lazer... but Jack U is my shit.
