I have never been to the AP Fest;  are the events all day, starting in the AM?  or is it mid-day to early evening into the night?

SLS is going to be in the lineup. Right. They were headliners last year why aren't they headliners this year?

I want to see drunk Alexis again. She and the rest of SLS members killed it on stage in Little Rock. 

Anybody around Arkansas, Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, Tennessee want to organize a trip to AP?  Hit me up.
