  1. advertising was lacking

    there wasn't enough advertising for the event. luckily i received an email. but most people delete spam. advertising at local music shops, myspace, twitter, facebook... i honestly never heard about it until the email...

    • it's the wrong time of year

      With the holiday's around the corner, people don't have the money to spend on luxuries like concerts. Also, many people from LA don't like going out when the weather gets a little colder ... so they puss out.

                  • Back to basics

                    ditch the greed, it's not the same anymore. I went to 06 and last year... 06 in watts was dope. peaceful gathering of music lovers.

                    Last year a guy was clocked for saying obama sucks, another guy was dragged off by the pigs after the crowd turned on him for heckling z-trips obama shit. you guys need to get control of your show back. the sense of unity and community was gone last year.

                    there was too much time inbetween sets filled by a asshole talking about the new world order. 06 had idigenous culture last year had a corporate…

                    • weak advertisment, weird time of year, need more genres performing, not just hip-hop.

                      Get out to all southern California radio stations and advertise the event. Have them give away some tickets. Create a profile on popular social networking sites (myspace, facebook, twitter, etc.) and request people with similar interests in the socal area, then post bulletins about the event like CRAZY.

                      The holidays are around the corner, so people are getting a lil' stingy with their cash. It's also getting a little chilly, which (personally) would keep me from going to an outdoors festival. Moving it to an earlier time in the year (spring-fall) would be better. I would avoid mid May thru…

                      • Psycho Realm was not in the line up

                        PR should be included in this event, and put in some more rock in there! You know we all like to get crazy in tha pit!

                            • we were just about to buy tickets right now

                              i also agree that its a bad habit but i tend to buy tickets either last minute or at the door. i just got paid and was looking foward to this. only things that almost stoped me from going was.
                              1. its outdoors (it gets mad cold)
                              2. money (to expensive, i might not end up going anymore since i need to buy shit i was getting greedy with this concert only thinking bout myself.)
                              3. not enough hip hop
                              4. no psycho realm
                              5. how do i know doom will show up
                              6.no psycho realm

                              • Too many unknown bands

                                Excellent headliners. Bad Religion and Suicidal Tendencies on the same bill would have been great. However, there were too many unknown bands. The price of the ticket did not justify all those unknown bands.

                                  should have stayed $25 and not $50 a ticket, i tried to do the WTPFEST code thing and it didn't work so i didn't buy the tickets.

                                  • Everyone wants to complain about something

                                    whether it be the line-up, because its "outside", because the promoters "dont work hard enough",because it's "too expensive" and so on and so on. Yet many of you don't know all the hard work and trouble it takes to book bands and acts for an event such as this. All of you are greedy for wanting better acts but i'm sure if prices were 60+ even with "more __ acts" you'd still be complaining !!!! Keep in mind all the effort that goes into booking a certain act and all you guys can do is complain. This isnt just about…
