    It’s so unfortunate that so many people didn’t get in, but y’all just have to understand how GREAT The Fader Fort really is–doesn’t surprise me one bit that the RSVP is closed already. Anybody that was really serious about going checked the Fader website faithfully and followed @thefader on Twitter, which announced the RSVP was open as soon as it happened.

    There was no way I was going to miss this event, and I took every precaution not to. Fader Fort is second to none during SXSW and the people that didn’t get in or going to miss a hell of a show. All the new artist that are relevant are going to be there, and best of all you can stay in one place spot instead off hopping from bar to bar.

    For the people that didn’t get in I suggest you still go and try and make a friend in line, because everyone is entitled to one guest. People like my self who are going sent there friends the RSVP link, so each one of us still has an option to bring a guest, even though we might not. This just leaves room for the last minute stragglers that may decide to join the party.

    Also, to the people that get in I strongly suggest you come early because the line gets long quick!

    Cheers and see everyone there!

  9. Rene says:

    Still havent gotten an email reply either. Maybe they are waiting, or bogged down with too many requests?
