I see what you're saying and you're partially right. People go to the festival over others because of the event itself that sets it apart, but they aren't paying $500 if the music isn't there first and foremost.

Woodstock Will Return This Summer, For Its 50th Anniversary

https://www.npr.org/2019/01/09/68357...q7ygJlOEYSqFQs

Quote:
The event will be held over three days — Aug. 16-18 — on a 1,000-acre green space in Watkins Glen in upstate New York, near the Finger Lakes.

While the artist lineup will not be announced until next month, when tickets go on sale to the general public, The New York Times reported Wednesday that organizer Michael Lang is planning to book "a mixture of legacy bands, current pop and rap stars and, possibly, some news-making combinations."

there are a heck of a lot of people that treat these festivals as an event and a place to party and be seen. music is secondary if it's even paid attention to at all.

heck, go to a folk fest. there are a good chunk of people that are there to party and seldom leave the beer tent. or they are there for one band and ignore the chance to hear and discover some amazing music elsewhere that day.

I've been to Coachella every year except one over the past 10 so yes I've been there and experienced it as its popularity has exploded over the past decade. I've also attended several other festivals of different genres so it's not as though I'm a rookie to the festival scene. Of course there are people there to be seen and party but for the most part people are there for the music, art and culture. When you have 120K people at a festival, there are going to be people there for all sorts of reasons.

I just found it be a strange comment to assume 120K people attending a MUSIC festival are only there "to party". Very strange.

^^^^^^^^

Jerry Lee Lewis is still alive?

That lineup is all over the place in terms of genres. I can totally see that working in a city like NOLA though.

You can watch this concert live tonight on youtube. It's not only a celebration of Daniel Johnston but also a day of mental health awareness. More details on http://hihowareyou.org.

Alice in Chains is coming to The Grey Eagle on April 12. I'm excited to go, but $102 for tickets seems really steep. I'll probably pay, but still.

It’s a running joke in Ottawa that they still call it Bluesfest, so not too many want to change it.

I’d have the blues if I was subjected to backstreet boys and the killers.

Everybody on the internet wants jazz and blues fests to remain pure, very few people go to true traditional jazz and blues fests. It's just one of those standard internet outrage/mocking topics that nobody cares about in real life.

They're just standard festivals with names that don't really fit. I mean they could change it to Sasquatch, Coachella etc but nobody buying tickets would care, they just look at the line-up and either buy tickets or don't. The name stays the same cause people associate it with "that big annual festival in this area" and anticipate the line-up reveal.

I just saw the Cat Empire in Montreal last night - just a heads up that they’ll be in Calgary at Mac Hall on March 15th. Hands down one of the best concerts I’ve ever been to. Virtuoso performances and great energy.

Cat Empire is an Australian band who plays a mixture of latin, caribbean, ska, and jazz. I’ve been a fan of theirs since hearing their first album, but had never seen them live.

Go!
