LEX LIVE 3: APRIL 17 – 26, 2020
“Lex Live 2 was a massive success. Everyone had a great time, so there was absolutely no reason to switch to a different venue,” Veldhuis says. “It just felt like a home run. I took a lot of feedback from people and everyone said the location was perfect.
“I can’t encourage people enough to come. It’s a great social event, and I think it would be great for people to get out and experience it. You’ll see there are so many people just like you.”
