Today┬╣s concert is rain or shine. In the event of electrical storm or high winds management will work with local authorities to protect the health and safety of the artists and audience. In the event of lightning, this may include short delays of the performance.

what is with the ten minute sets? hardly worth going.

Every hip-hop festival I read about sounds like a fiasco. I will admit that I am not an expert on hip-hop administration, but ten-minute sets strikes me as hilarious and stupid.

they get a whole 10 mins? wow.

It's 8 hours straight of music headlined by an hour of De La Soul. How is that hardly worth going?
