I've only been to Boston twice but isn't an outdoor festival in May a bit risky for you guys? Haha. Have some cousins there and I've heard some wild weather stories.

Yeah, with our luck it will probably either be a tropical storm or a record high heat day. And the city will be more of a traffic mess than usual.

I'm so excited to see Marina/Charli XCX in may!

Semi-OT but is it wrong that when I saw a picture of a suspect wanted for that car crash/shoot on The Strip, my first thoughts were, "OMG He has a heart on his cheek, he's a Marina fan!'

$120 for 18 acts seems a little steep no? Granted, this line up lacks any filler, that's still a bit much for a festival of this size.

That's how you know you listen to Marina too much.

60 bucks a day for all those bands? Im not going to go but how much is it for a typical fun or the national concert alone. Im guessing 40-50 bucks easily. I know Matt and Kim were in Boston last week and that was around 40. I'd say its a pretty fair shake. I can also see it being pretty easy for people to sneak into this. They can't just close off all of City Hall Plaza
