  4. Hey guys, does anyone have an extra ticket to Friday or Saturday of the festival? It’s sold out and I’m trying to get into Flatstock for my poster fix. I don’t care about this music festival so much as the dank prints and artists that will be there so shoot me an email if you can help! >> CMack1481 (at) GMail (dot com)
