Into It. Over It.'s set times have changed at Fest. He will now be playing solo instead of full-band.
This message is difficult to write, but I need to address the scheduling changes regarding Into It.

I have their backs and they have mine. In the recent weeks leading up to Fest it had come to my attention that the mental and emotional health of one of the members was/is not exactly where it should...

We talk about this all the time, how there arenít enough female-represented bands and artists at festivals. You donít see them. And itís really sad for us. We came up with the idea basically of why canít we just bring back a festival thatís just ladies. Not that we donít love the boysÖ I did see Melissa Ethridge in concert, I saw Sarah McLachlan in concert, I saw Paula Cole in concert, and Sheryl Crowe.
