I am pretty sure most people are going to find out via social media, not by going to the press conference. Awaiting the lineup.

They are getting better. Usually don’t announce until 4 or 5 weeks before. Hard to make plans. Hopefully we will get a good lineup. Kid Rock again?

People complaining about perfectly good lineups like they expect Jazz Fest on Gretna Fest budget. Where else can you see bands like Kiss, or Chicago for $ 25?

I wish the GHF could get lynyrd Skynyrd back one more time before they end their farewell tour at the end of the year. Remember they owe us a show since they had to cancel due to the hurricane coming close to Jacksonville Fl a few years ago.

I don’t mind paying more for a better lineup. Last year was very-disappointing . Bad weather would not stop me if the lineup is good.

Omg....so many people bitching and complaining. ZIP IT. THE FESTIVAL WAS GREAT 1.line up...perfect...you cant please everyone and you're not jazz fest ...REALITY PEOPLE. 2. pricing....um so many bands for less than $50...QUIT BITCHING 3. it's a great, fun, Safe environment with food, family, and music. Dont like it......dont go. (Good less bitchy people) These festival throwers work their asses off I'm sure of it. Be a little less douchy and more constructive when offering feedback. See you in septemeber!

Advertising early. That’s a good sign that preparation can make it more successful. 🤞

I really wish they moved it back to October. When I went two years ago for Kiss, it was miserably hot. My friends and I decided we would not go back until they moved it back to October. Believe it or not, that one week makes all the difference in the weather. If they can't move it to the first weekend in October like before, then move it to later in October.
