  1. Maybe I am misreading this, but is he headlining SPRINGfest or SUNfest? The title says SPRINGfest and the article quotes Sunfest and gives September as the month. Just wondering.

    • Awesome catch! Sorry, I assumed that it was a press release about the event that is going to happen soonest. Dumb mistake. Thanks so much!
