How did your scores affect your college decision or course selections?
  • hard to find info in the lead-up to the festival on bands & delegates.
  • mentor cafe was excellent. a number of no-shows really sucked. the ones who showed up were awesome.
  • wasn't told could share music at linda perry workshop. a member of the security was disrespectful.
