I'm working on writing my own iCalendar feed for use with localendar. I've tested importing the feed into outlook and into iCalendar validators and it works fine. When I try to import into localendar it says it's not valid. I can't find any documentation on what localendar is requiring. I've tried several versions, but here is a recent one.

BEGIN:VCALENDAR
BEGIN:VEVENT
DTEND:20140630T130035Z
DTSTART:20140630T120035Z
PRIORITY:1
SEQUENCE:0
STATUS:Confirmed
UID:5c9919d3-41aa-4627-b8ec-a5434d7f7d6b
END:VEVENT
END:VCALENDAR

The lack of an event title (SUMMARY) or description (DESCRIPTION) are 2 obvious omissions. It's perhaps easier if you just compare against an existing localendar event (you can look at your own calendar export for an example)

BEGIN:VEVENT
DTSTAMP:20140701T202242Z
DTSTART;TZID=America/New_York:20090115T173000
DTEND;TZID=America/New_York:20090115T204500
SUMMARY:St John / Ucon game
DESCRIPTION:Simplest thing would be for you to meet me at the arena

I'm getting an error that says Subject not found in header

Here is a snippet of my header and the first event:

What do you think the issue is? Isn't subject == SUMMARY?

That error is unrelated to anything you did - it's something on our side caused by an out-of-date file. That should be corrected as of this am.
