Hey, it's official, not going to do it this spring at the arcade.... Basically, they didn't have their shit together.
here's my last communication with them...
"The consensus from performers is we need a 6 month window to do the festival properly. As I mentioned, we had planned for chips artists to come in from potentially every continent (sans Africa and Antarctica).
When I got the yes from Don in October, we were on track. However, it's now less than 90 days.
Therefore, we'll have to respectfully decline. "
I'm thinking we should meet up in the fall September or October.
If we pick a weekend now, I should be able to confirm a venue within a few weeks.
Sorry that this has been such a long and ridiculous journey.... but I still absolutely want to do this.
