Best WTF?

Conditions at Insubordination Fest

Festivals and expensive bottled water are a poor combination, and May’s Insubordination Fest, a two-day multi-band concert, went down as one hellish weekend at Sonar. Day one allowed re-entry, free cups of water, and bottled water for $1, but by day two, re-entry was denied, bartenders refused to provide cups of water, and bottled water jumped in price to as much as $4. Even bathroom sinks were off limits for hydration, because concertgoers needed to find a new source of water when the toilets overflowed. A commenter on wrote: “Pretty much every awful thing people are saying is true. By the end of Saturday there were puddles of urine and feces floating into the hallways.” Post-weekend, Sonar owner Dan McIntosh and Fest co-founder Mark Enoch pointed fingers and hurled accusations via Midnight Sun, the Baltimore Sun’s Arts and Entertainment blog. WTF indeed.
