I wish the promoters of both the Governor’s Ball and Mountain Jam would get together and make their festivals on different weekends. Two major festivals within 2 or so hours of each other on the same dates, doesn’t make sense.

Makes perfect sense. If you want to see ABB you go to Mountain Jam. You want to see shit music you go to Gov’s.

Sorry Pink. Confused the Mountain and Peach Fest. You are still in need of a serious attitude adjustment.
