This year, the festival flirted with cancellation.
At the 11th hour, Kevin Saunderson proposed admission fees.
At the 11th hour and some minutes, the city agreed to the proposal.
Apparently, with a price, the festival featured less glow-sticks.
Apparently, with ticket sales, the festival can account for numbers with more accuracy.
Apparently, with a charge to attend, the festival supported less quantity and more quality in every way.
Apparently, they claim success.

Re: New Acronymn eh??
As much as the locals and scenesters may not like Carol Marvin, she did strike a point with the turnover traffic of previous festivals.
The ones which I attended featured a revolving door of people.
They should concentrate on the real miracle. This event actually happened. 3 months ago, this event seemed guaranteed to be cancelled.
Calling it a 'success' is rather optimistic. I encourage it from the promoters and the city's point of view, but I see this as a sideways shift instead of an upward shift.
