The above festivals are all standard rock festivals with camping optional and have bands all day and well into the night. However, there are also pseudo festivals such as Backstage's "Free and Easy Festival," which takes place from July 21st to August 8th. During this time all shows at the backstage are free. These are regular shows at a permanent venue, the Backstage, but they simply have no cover charge. Some of the bands playing this year include: Anti-Flag, Sepultura, Ignite, Agnostic Front, MXPX, Suicide Commando, Shai Hulud, and Mr. Irish Bastard.
