APE 2014 Announces Special Guest List!

APE, the Alternative Press Expo, starts it's third decade in the San Francisco Bay Area with a new (old) venue: the Festival Pavilion at Fort Mason Center. Premiering there on Saturday, October 4 and Sunday, October 5, APE is actually returning to its original San Francisco home: the event was located there in the years 2000 through 2002, when it first moved to the city from San Jose.

APE 2014 promises to be another big year for the show, with an amazing guest list that has just been announced.
