    This event was simply amazing. Great job to everyone involved, from event staff to production to lighting to performers. This was off the hook and totally BIG STAGE and the production for this one was perfect. I’m not even big into trance and Kaskade’s main stage performance blew me away.

    And to the folks at Glow, thanks for making this possible. PLEASE, PLEASE do something like this again real soon – and most definitely keep doing it at Jiffy Lube Live – what an amazing location for an event – parking was easy, heck – everything was easy. We endured heat and rain for this one and it didn’t even matter. The event was so good I would have stuck it out through a hail storm. Worth every penny of the $62 I paid, although it might help more people attend if it were a little lower. But I’d pay $200 to do that again, so no complaints from me.

    Keep up the good work. Ultra 2012, here I come!
