So, the Rocklahoma organizers have added yet *another* day to this year's festival. That might be a good idea in theory...but in practice, it creates a travel nightmare for just about every person holding tickets. Right now, we're just over sixty days away from Rocklahoma. It would be one thing if the organizers announced some actual specifics for the "extra-extra" day, but they didn't and this has a lot of people up in arms. Most of the press release is posted below.
What do you think? I don't know if I'll be changing my travel plans...I hate to use yet another vacation day. I figure it will be another four hundred bucks for me to change all my travel plans. Sort of sucks considering money is hard to come by for everyone these days. Also, UFO isn't on the release, but I am guessing that was just an oversight...then again, I'm not sure.
PRYOR, OK— Catch the Fever Music Festivals announced that due to the overwhelming response from members of the rock community and their fans, a fifth day has been added to Rocklahoma.
