Dear friends,

This was the biggest HPX in our 19-year history!!  I’m a bit freaked out to be honest as I have no clue how we’re going to top it next year.  Luckily we have 360 days to plan and we’re not wasting any time.

Another year is done and we are so glad we could share this week of music with you, our friends, fans, bands, volunteers, sponsors, board and anyone else who showed up to support independent and innovative music.

It was a HUGE 5 days and before we take a collective breath, rest our feet and reconnect with friends  and family we wanted to extend a great big THANK YOU to everyone for coming out in droves to support independent music.

We are all pretty touched that you decided to spend your time with us and are honored to have the best fans, bands, volunteers, sponsors and partners in the world.  I wish I could hug every one of you but a virtual high five will have to suffice.

We will be sending out a survey in the next few days to see what you thought.  What worked, what didn’t, what you would change if you were in charge and what you would keep the same.  HPX is your festival and we want you to keep us moving in the right direction so keep your eyes peeled for the survey and fill it out when it comes in.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the best festival ever, we can’t wait to do it all again next year with you so mark the dates – 20th Anniversary Oct 16-20, 2012.
