Festival, schmestival

Posted on Thu, Aug 14, 2014 at 4:00 AM

I know people love to do the annual run to local music festivals. Many amazing acts perform at them. Often, the number of acts you get to see are huge in proportion to what you pay. Often, the “admission” fee is well worth the number of acts. HOWEVER...MANY of these “local” acts are visible for little or no cover charge at local venues (which is moot, since 90 per cent of local venues pay their acts a set fee and take the admission fee PLUS the beverage sales as profit). GO TO A FREAKING LOCAL VENUE TO SEE LOCAL TALENT INSTEAD OF PAYING TO CAMP OUT, OVERPAY VENDORS FOR FOOD AND NOT SHOWER! —I fully expect to get slammed for this post
