Really sucks :( It must be so hard to organize events like that

Yeah, and it's one of the few events (other than like Viz fest, which I think they stopped doing past 2011 or something, or 渋谷が大変) that are of this scale and feature talent from all different sized followings. It sucks, but festivals everywhere seem to be facing this same issue :(
