We're going to have a ton of fun stuff going on. The first year we're doing one stage, so there are no competing set times. All the artists will play back to back to back on the one stage.

You can check out our interview with Betty Who here.
When you're a new artist, you're just like, "Oh, this is just like the first time I'm doing everything and we'll see how it goes." And then if it goes well hopefully, the second time you come around you're like, "Wait, I was just, like, guessing. How do I do that again? I didn't really have a system to it." So that's definitely been the thing that freaks me out more than anything.
