Since by their own admission this is a small scale operation (only a few people working for them) if they announced a big time band they would be swarmed and overloaded with bookings. People would get pissed off and would be an administrative nightmare.
It would seem easier to announce moderate size bands and sell cabins at a consistent pace. Then when they are maybe 4-6 months away from event time they could announce something really big (if that is indeed the plan). This way they are covered on both ends. If they sell most of the cabins or all of them before a big announcement, they are all set. If they don't sell out, then the big announcement would surely sell the remainder available.
Since we are still 7-8 months away there is no need to rush anything and "blow their load" this early (that's never a good thing ). Every time a new band is announced, all the news sites mention it, so it's free promotion for them every 2 weeks. Keeps it fresh in people's mind.
But then again, what the hell do I know.
YEah I see what you're sayin about a huge cluster fuck if their small crew got overloaded like that.......Hey, Im a LEO....I like shit done MY WAY lol
