In previous years, they were able to get bands like Bad Brains, Zero Boys, Negative Approach, etc to reunite.
Why does every fest think the goal is to get bigger?
What's wrong with staying smaller and still being successful?
They went from Riot Fest being a bunch of small shows into one big opener night show then a 2 day all day fest in a park.
Also the park isn't really even in a good neighborhood.
