By nature, festivals have lots of acts.
There aren't enough good time slots for everyone, so the smaller font names have to perform at awkward times.
When Philadelphia rapper Eem Triplin did Rolling Loud New York this fall he was given the first time slot.
Only 13 people were able to get to the festival early enough to see him.
But Triplin took the snub in stride.

Rolling Loud appreciated his good attitude and sent him a gaming system.

“Hopefully, you get 20 people next time," read the message from the festival.
