Does anyone have suggestions as to how/where to keep previous years' schedules? Would it be acceptable to split it off into a yearly page thing? Jpers36 06:20, 12 November 2006 (UTC)

Photos[edit]

Can we put up a new photo for the main stage? That shot doesn't do it justice. It's in daylight, and with no band on the stage. I shot some great wide shots at night that I'd be happy to use. Echobase 2000 16:00, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

I have a couple good shots of Main Stage from last week -- during the day, but still very nice-looking, and with bands playing. I just haven't had the time to upload them yet. I also want to intersperse a couple images from other shows, which I will be uploading for their respective bands anyway -- for example, Klank, Life In Your Way, Mark Lee Townsend and Twelve Gauge Valentine.

suggestions[edit]

Wouldn't this page be better if it listed a selection of bands or events, year by year, instead of a complete and exhaustive list of this year's lineup? All that information is probably listed on the Cornerstone website anyway, and not as interesting or informative as a better history of the festival would be.


For Today[edit]

Cornerstone Festival Schedule Maker[edit]

This is no different than the Cornesrtone Survival Guide. Why was the Cornerstone Schedule Maker removed from the external links? 99.55.159.198 (talk) 20:28, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

By the way, I do have a login account. Anyone think I should undo the rollback? Omnichad (talk) 20:28, 26 June 2009 (UTC)

Picture[edit]

Does anyone have a picture for the new main stage. Having the article picture being the old main stage kinda dates it. --Guerillero | My Talk 22:40, 23 August 2010 (UTC)

Criticism[edit]

I'm not going to add anything about this, but I'm just wondering what other editors think. If you've met some of the bands that refuse to play at Cornerstone, the obvious answer is going to be "They claim to be Christians but do things they know they shouldn't be doing." Has anyone come across any (valid and reliable) sources for this? I ask because a long time ago, maybe a year ago, I remember seeing a criticism section with something like that and now it's gone. Was it removed for lack of sources or... you know...? 64.234.0.101 (talk) 02:11, 28 August 2010 (UTC)

Correcton[edit]

Hey guys...not really sure how wikipedia works so I hope this is seen by the author. Derri did NOT play the last song at the fest for starters. I was there (23 years in a row) and by no stretch of the imagination was The Choir the last band to play. One punk show actually scheduled the skate ramp at nearly 4 in the morning. I think the Underground Stage was also still going, but I can't sweat to that one. Attendance didn't actually reach 6000. That was a rumor. I spoke to the guy who printed the straps actually. This year was a ghost town. And whoever mentioned something about having a pic of the "new" main stage needs to know that there wasn't a main stage this year. They had moved the main for 2 years into the concession area (absolutely the worst idea in cornerstone history). No one was attending it and the smaller tents actually had greater attendance. So they tried to kidnap an audience by putting it where everyone was eating and trying to be social. It just made it difficult to order food and made us converge in various other places. They had the good idea to cancel that stage this year. Sadly the next two biggest stages (encore 1 and 2) were also cancelled. I'd say there were only 15% of the normal amount of portajons and that was plenty. Population estimates and this fragment of a cornerstone were at 3000, but that was an early estimate. Not sure how many more showed up by the weekend. Hope it helps your article :). — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.190.180.193 (talk) 05:30, 23 July 2012 (UTC)

I suspect that it was the last song on the main stage, but it should be referenced or removed. --Walter Görlitz (talk) 05:39, 23 July 2012 (UTC)
