Am I the only one who thinks charging $1.29 for the app is a bit rude? $710 for 2 early bird 5 day passes (not to mention associated bar spend for 2 over 5 days), and we have to pay $1.29 for the app? We won't buy it on principle.

There is no "good" or "bad" music - there is just music.
Live and let live!

Probably. The app is made by an independent co. Appmajic not Bluesfest.
You are outlaying over $1K and now whinging about $1.
You don't have to buy it, get the free program at the gate.
I think it's great value, we were lucky to get it for free last year.

The Android app is $1.99, so clearly the iSheep are being treated with kid gloves.

I don't want to hang up my rock n roll shoes

It updates itself automatically every time you launch it.

You need to open the "search" box and the dates drop down. A bit clumsy. If you hit "stage" it seems to work OK.

I paid $2.49 did they price change?

When you're lost in the rain in Juarez
And it's Eastertime too
And your gravity fails
And negativity don't pull you through
Don't put on any airs
When you're down on Rue Morgue Avenue
They got some hungry women there
And they really make a mess outta you.

No, you're not the only one, the principle, not the money.

The price appears to be as fluid as the timetable.

It also appears that the app from last year has been updated. Is it a sign of poor developer skills that the Android app sends the user to the iTunes store when prompting them to buy the new version?
