No offense to WEXT, but LarkFest was much better under WEQX.

I can't wait to have poop and pee on my front door again!!!!!!!

I truly love music but I just can't get into either of these headliners this year.

this sounds pretty awful. Can't they get a better headliner and better local acts?

I saw Northern Faces at Northern Lights a few weeks ago, they were AWESOME!! Defiantly looking forward to seeing them again!

Keep up the good work WEXT! This is a stellar lineup and if you don't know Ryan Shaw or World Party you are truly missing out! Ryan Shaw if great and World Party (albeit a little older of a band) is awesome! Goodbye Jumbo is of the the best CD's of all time! Now if only LarkFest wasn't occurring the weekend I'm out of time :(

I also saw Northern Faces at Valentine's they are great! You won't want to miss them one of the best bands playing this year!!

god have outdone ourselves with lame band after lame band

World Party is an incredible and overlooked band. Ignorance is Not bliss- check them out on YouTube. This may be the first Larkfest in a decade I feel motivated to go to- strictly for this music.

Love Graham Alexander and Ryan Shaw!!! Cannot wait for this.

What a brave young woman. Despite all of the hardships she has endured her main focus is to educate herself in order to spend her life in service to others as a doctor. How inspiring.
