      Do I need my printout?

      August 24, 2014

    • Si F.

      You don't need it. If you have it on your smart phone you can use that.

      August 24, 2014

  • Ms. J.

    Good Morning! Is anyone going today?

    August 24, 2014

  • FV

    One more thing. Never fails. Cell phone service is always spotty 5:30-8 at these things. Make sure you meet up with your group, friend, make that call, post that picture, before 5:30! That's when the festival is at it's fullest and everyone is on their cellphone!

    New Information: PONY gives out free shoes in the evening at the Red Stage on the side where the merch tents are. There is a GENERAL ADMISSION option. If you didn't RSVP or buy a ticket, you can wait in the Gen Admin line. This line is first come first 'get in' after the Fast Pass and RSVP people but at least there is an option if you haven't gotten anything yet. D'Angelo is still scheduled for tomorrow as far as we know. Goodnight!

    I'm going Sunday with Shel of band Sonnyboy. We're going real early to make sure we get in, as entry isn't guaranteed for RSVP ticket holders.

  • Phil D.

    Member from our group got it confirmed. Even though he was removed from the bill, D'Angelo will perform at 8:30 on Sunday. Thanks, Phil

    August 21, 2014

  • FV

    To all. I'll pick a stage (probably the furthest from the entrance) and set up camp for everyone from both this group and the DC group to meet up from ~12-2pm on Saturday. I'll give more info that morning. As far as Sunday, I'm going to the Spike Lee Michael Jackson tribute first before I go to AfroPunk so to address Kia's question, ppl can meet up on Sunday in the same spot as Saturday but I won't be there until 3. More details to come.

      Thanks, FV. I am going Sunday only. I'm not that familiar with the setup, so if anyone wants to meet near the park, say 12:30 at the DeKalb subway stop and head over together and secure a spot, let me know.
