Re: “Review & Photos: Hiero Day 2014

How could you have possibly written this entire article without any mention of the lack of space, water, shade, etc.? You could barely even walk through the crowd let alone get anywhere near the stage unless you got there hours ahead of time. Guess the press must have had a different POV being backstage or something but that event was so poorly organized I don't know if I'd even go back next year. What they were doing was illegal--from the doubled capacity to the lack of water to the overcrowding which led to people passing out without getting medical attention, this was bad news all around. On top of it, the beer area was completely unpatrolled and they even had people walking around giving away 21 and up wristbands with dozens of people crowding around them to shove their IDs in their face. Poor journalism for not mentioning the serious downfalls of this event. On top of that, when I posted my concerns to the official Hiero Day page, they deleted mine and others' comments and blocked me from the page. Great community effort, guys...
