Good work. This year seemed quite light on the guests, I've just checked and it's the only year I haven't seen one. Here's hoping they retroactively validate it by getting the lad off Sundara Karma as a guest.

I want the festival to go the other way and book Darryl Strawberry and Ken Griffey Jr.

I have no idea if there even is a DJ Z but I'm not having all that time wasted, stretching the rules for other letters and generally not doing work only to fall at the last hurdle. Lets just say she (might as well be slightly progressive with my fictional DJ) did a secret set in one of the random little Shangri-la places in 2011, Friday at 3:45am.

Checked the lineup again and as far as I can see Katy Perry is the only person on that lineup who has done it.
