@nomus24g It's nice to watch events on TV when you can't go in person. Be comfortable and enjoy the show.

Please don't send us to Wikipedia but tell us what you find worth telling in your own words. It's surely not asking too much to write more than four lines yourself.

@nomus24g Sending members to Wikipedia to find out things for themselves is certainly a strange conception of what a myLot discussion should be like.

@MALUSE Please try and understand, what I mean by the post. Let me reiterate - the brief concept of the festival is already posted above,however depending on the interest level of the members, if in any case somebody wants a detailed download of the festival, he/she might visit the wikipedia page...why are you making an issue out of it??
