    As summer music festivals in the Madison market release their music schedules, AtwoodFest typically waits until Memorial Day to release its anticipated line up of local, regional, and national artists.

    This year, it looks like the Russians have intervened and hacked into the AtwoodFest servers and leaked the live music schedule on pastebin.com.

    Never before has this happened in small town America, but apparently Vladimir is trying to plan his summer fun schedule and could not wait until the holiday release.

    Local authorities are calling for an independent investigation into the leaks but legislators in the capitol are using little known rules to block any attempts.

    For now it looks like we’ll all have to wait for the official website to be released and trust that the leaks are accurate.
