PERFORMANCE START TIMES
As an outdoor music festival, we're weather-dependent, and we're also not a concert. We're a festival with several groups performing, and sometimes weather and encores have us running behind. We try to stay as close to the published schedule as much as possible, but because of changing weather conditions and artistic spontaneity, everything schedule-wise is subject to change.
