I'm one of the few who has been able to escape Brooklyn with my ROCKER cred.

This description is just so lame...nothing original with this. Character Actors? Social Networks? Sounds like the producers of this are just so out of touch with what a "uniquely Brooklyn" event would be like.

EMF will be an interactive experience that integrates the artists, the music, the audience, character actors, experiential exhibits and art, and social networks into a truly unique experience.

In addition, Balearic Entertainment is partnering with local vendors, restaurants, and other cultural institutions to create a world-class event that is uniquely Brooklyn.

Oscar Aguilera is the shit.

Fucking amazing. Early bird tickets purchased. You guys can go spend your money on emo band reunions or whatever other nonsense you actually find worthwhile, which seems like nothing except trolling BV.

So many festivals all the time...
So many iPhones spectating...
So many hummus eaters dipping pita triangles...

Funnily enough, i would pay $80 just to see yeasayer but fortunately I like several of the artists on this HALF-lineup.

Will all the Brooklyn Girls be there? And by that I mean Catey Shaw specifically.
