I signed your petition. I think it's a hell of an idea but a really good one. Do you think they'll actually do it if enough people sign?
No. It's a good thought, but this kind of thing means nothing to festival organizers. I'm gonna sign it anyway, though. It's kinda like voting for Ralph Nader; it means nothing, but it makes you feel a little better.
Except if Nader hadn't run in 2000, we probably wouldn't have had 8 years of Bush Jr. That's something an internet petition could never avoid.

I only went one day last year because I was on crutches, but it was a blast. The Replacements killed it on the stadium stage, and Kishi Bashi blew us away on the lawn. The only downside was the indoor electronic stage filled with preteens that made it basically impossible for us to get to Negativland. I rank it above Block Party now because that's become a UW frat brofest, and their security is possibly worse.
