Should have moved it to the Gorge, one of the most gorgeous venues ever.

White River sucks. You have to leave an hour before the show's over if you don't wanna spend three hours trying to get out of there. And the city's reroute through the boonies is SO sketch.

im not ok with this. this really fucked my plans. marymoor is about 5 minutes away from my place as compared to the hour long drive to white river and the 3 hour drive home with tons of traffic on a two lane road. Lets not change the venue next year, Kevin. The gorge was just fine. The canadians love going there too. stop being so damned money greedy.

Marymoor was definitely a head scratching move, but why not keep it at the Gorge? Makes so much more sense.

Cause getting to the Gorge sucks? I donno the advantage of having it at white river over the Gorge (probably a money thing), but at least Marymoore is possible to get to without a car.

Yeah, in Redmond... I'm not sure if they moved the Redmond location or not, Seattle ain't Redmond.

Pretty sure it wasn't Kevin's idea. Many cities are being "anti" Warped this year - I believe one Cali city would have kicked the show out if they had known it was booked earlier.

They moved the Warped weekend up a weekend so the Gorge was already booked for a Country festival that weekend.

So glad I chose not to go after seeing they moved it to Redmond, and I don't care if I live 14 minutes from Marymoor, that is just not a place I'd want to have a festival at.

Kevin said that they changed it so more Canadians would come and that it was easier access to people in the city. In my head that translates to "bigger attendance=more money". If you have been going to warped for the past 11 years- going to the gorge is a tradition. It's half the reason I ever go to the festival anymore.
