I just noticed ticket sales will commence on Saturday but All Good beat them to the punch with a Friday release and an amazing lineup. Considering All Good is supposed to announce Phish also does anyone think this is going to have a large impact on attendance this year????

I don't think it will take away from the fest populace except for the big Phish fans. The lineup for All Good seems to cater to them more than Roo's. What's the key player here is that All Good has moved from Marvin's Mountaintop to Legend's Valley in Ohio. This is probably a reaction to the application to change the noise ordinance that governs Caroline County, VA. They wanted to host 14-16 hours of music a day. A news search for the application turned up nil but seeing that they changed venues to the historic Legend's where the Dead played multiple times, is probably an indicator that it didn't go over well. I'm pretty sure Legend's is a larger site than Marvin's but could find no acreage of either site. I would assume so seeing that they did want to move the fest to Moss Neck Manor, a 1,200 acre site in West Virgina. So the line ups good, fest has sold out the past two years, larger venue with more music time= huge impact.
Marvin's Mountaintop was idyllic, with the stage area in a natural amphitheater, and camping on crazy hills and ridges. New venue is twice the distance from me, so the attraction now is much less for me.
