    DUI’s are about to go through the roof. Moving this out of Hamtramck was stupid and you guys know it! No one cares about Ferndale.

    Sorry to say, but this festival lost its way. It is now without focus and irrelevant. Getting suburban, eh MT?! You are now a punchline of a snarky joke. Stupid, stupid moves.

    Love me some E6 (just saw them at the Blind Pig last weekend) and a few of the other bands on the list, but I’ll wait until the dates/locations are released to buy tickets. Not doing Ferndale.

    I’m sure plenty of other people will, though, and eschew Hamtown, so I don’t see how this will work in three cities. It didn’t last year and will have to see details to see what might be different last year.

    Thank goodness I can see bands somewhere other than Hamtramck. I got physically assaulted down there and the way they protect the lawbreakers is unholy. Never again will I go there.

    I wonder if all the people complaining about Ferndale will stop there to get gas as they head south for the festival.
