Ottawa's hoedown showdown

Just went to update our Festivals Guide with info about the Capital Hoedown, a new country music festival that announced its line-up today. The first result that came up was for the similarly-named O-Town Hoedown, also a country music festival.

Similar name, but two different events. Here's a note on the O-Town Hoedown page:
You may not have heard, there's a new country music festival in town, called Capital Hoedown. No, it's not us. We're in the process of trying to sort the mess out so that there's no confusion about which festival is which. If you want to show your support of O-Town Hoedown, send an email to Capital Hoedown asking them to change their name. No death threats though, or eggs. Also, please leave Y101 out of it, they're just a sponsor, not an organizer.

Here's a scorecard to help keep track:

We're proposing a shoot-out at high noon in front of City Hall. Winner gets to keep the hoedown name.
