Well....as an attendee and a performer from last years Ultrasound, i can tell you that the last thing it did was suck. Not only was i lucky enough to be able to perform there, but i was also able to see a gaggle of great acts that i never would have been able to see otherwise. AND everyone made themselves very available to meet and greet. i can't tell you what a pleasure it was to meet and hang out with Michael Morales, Ken Tamplin, Swirl, Smilek, and the ton of other bands that were there. As a fan, it was a great weekend, as a performer it was even better, as it is where i was ultimately signed to my deal with A2 Records.

Was it perfect...not at all. But show me a first year event that is???!!! Hell...i know some VERY established events that aren't run as well as US2K was. OK...the turnout was smaller then expected, but that's what happens in a first year. There are already more people registered for this year from what i understand. As far as some bands pulling out...that had more to do with their labels and $$$ then anything else..not because they didn't WANT to play.

I know you had a room problem as a few people did...yes, i know who you are who posted this...but don't blame Dave for the hotels or agents screw up. If you could do a better job, then run your own fest. Otherwise, be grateful that Dave Tedder has the balls to put together the ONLY Melodic fest in the states.

To anyone thinking about going this coming year...i'd say go for it. It's already bigger then it was wiht bigger sponsors...so i guess it couldn't have sucked too bad...now did it?!?!?!?!

later....peace.
