    Sadly I received no email today, nothing in my spam folder either.
    I did get a nice mailing last week asking for donor money.

    Mark, the email went out to previous festival attendees (any ticket level) around noon yesterday and included a link to buy tickets ahead of the general onsale date this Friday.

    I got the same donor requests last week as well (guessing most of us did!); if you are a donor then you can purchase a pass this year at the same price as last year's pass, but the presale isn't restricted only to donors.

    John,is The Hilton the best located hotel to many/most of the venues.Memory fails me.It's been a few years since my last Big Ears.

    I'd rather not pay Hilton prices but there doesn't seem to be that many alternative joints.

    If i may be nosey, where did you and the other merry men stay last year?

    Anyone else, please feel free to chime in.

    The most centrally-located hotel is probably Crowne Plaza, especially since a sizable number of acts are at the new Mill + Mine location in that direction. Hilton is a bit further, but also closer to Bijou, Tennessee, and the two churches. The new Hotel Knoxville looks interesting and has a very good rate too...I can't imagine they'd advertise that one if they thought there was any risk it wouldn't be ready in time.

    Also something to keep in mind Walt...they now have a free trolley service that runs nonstop between all the venues through the weekend. So that cuts down considerably on walking if you want to use it.

    IMHO Hilton is perfectly decent, and at least as of now, the best overall rate. Other hotels may start offering Big Ears rates too, but I don't have any official knowledge of that (just speculation).

    Ticket sales appear to be brisk.
    I guess I have to settle on a hotel already.
