And YES, we have handled all the issues with layout and sound that didn’t work at this venue in 2013. We live and learn! We’ve got a new festival footprint that will leave more room for the stages, carnival rides, roaming performers, and interactive art installations. It’s gonna be bigger and better than before. Can’t wait to see you all in the Big Apple! 🍎😎🗽🎡”
