Pack your Red Bull (or find the parties powered by Sparks), clear your memory cards, tell the bosses you’ll see ‘em next week — it’s time for fest in the city. We’ve been too busy to really pull together our definitive schedule, but our cursory glance at the day part and showcase lineup’s netted a few must-hits and highlights:
