I could not agree more the allure since the get go was the size of this festival and the fact that it was not over crowded and fun. Now it is going to be moved to an area with 12 million people seems completely against what this festival was founded on. The addition of criterion cinema series is a plus where are they going to put that now? Since this is not in a venue much like Kutchers and Asbury Park my feeling is it will go away the cinema that is. We have been going to this festival since the first one and I have one of my friends stating he has no want or need to go to Manhattan to see this event and therefore he is going to ask for his money back. To me this just screams of sponsors and others trying to make money instead of just creating a great atmosphere where people can listen to great artists and mingle with them which included the Steve Albini Poker night. This event is only 2 months away so this is a change at the last minute we reserved a house to stay in with a $450 dollar deposit and it looks like we are going to lose said deposit. That along with taking money out of Ashbury Park who to be honest seemed to appreciate the festival and those that attended it. The whole argument about places for people to stay is completely unfounded if I remember correctly they did not even sell out the main hotel and many other options around the area were available. Something stinks here and it is not the Hudson River.... Thanks for the memories ATP New York, Jersey it was a blast while it lasted.
