Judging by a visit to the festival’s website, Alternative Press appears to be sponsoring the festival and The Maine’s 8123 seems to be also involved. When signing up for the mailing list, the festival’s address is the same as The Maine’s retail store. While this is likely just a temporary front for the festival’s true location, this is all just speculation. The details for the festival are to be released on March 19th.
