Many of you have probably already heard this, but this year’s Cornerstone will be it’s last. You can read the official announcement on their Facebook page, along with the reasons. This is a sad announcement, because many of the bands that we feature in this magazine would probably not have started or gone anywhere without Cornerstone and the sub-culture that it attracted. There are still many festivals to go to around the country, but Cornerstone seems to be the festival that they all look up to. I was lucky to have gone in 2000, but I guess I always thought I would get a chance to go again.
