Organizers announced that Sunday's bands would perform shortened sets
On Sunday afternoon, organizers announced that the scheduled list of main and second stage acts would each be moved up between one to two hours earlier, and perform shortened sets. The slot reserved for the surprise guest artist has been dissolved entirely. Many campers who have remained on site have stayed to catch such popular bands like Catherine Wheel, The Watchmen, Ani DiFranco and the Goo Goo Dolls.
Mark Drost, president of ICONcerts and the main mover behind the event, said that after today's daily update between organizers, the shortened schedule took shape to help campers leave earlier, thus avoiding the dark and the possibility of rain. It didn't rain.

Overall, Eden was a good time, particularly for average concert-goer. Aside from two stages of music, there was a global village, computer trailer with Internet access and a global village full of fun products. Highlights of this particular attraction including the $10 head shave/t-shirt deal for charity, the hugely popular body painting booth and band signing sessions from Everclear, Shed 7 and the Doughboys at the Chart magazine booth.
Promoter Mark Drost- "Eden Musicfest is definitely returning next year"
