This year's ATP NJ sucks... POP is already more varied and exciting

Damn... why can't we get a lineup like this in the US??

4:17 you are a fucking moron. ATP has a day and a half's worth of programming still TBA, and this shit is C-list at best. Maybe ask your boss at the PR firm about how to respond to this to best hump the festival before writing back.

Is ATP happening? No updates or information about lodging was sent to people who bought ''early bird" tickets. What a crock of shit they are turning into. This pop Montreal sounds like a fun lineup.

You've misspelled Osheaga.
