Now dubbed "Mistake Garden party"
I am sure the article is just trying to be nice about it. Thats what the comments section is for! heh
My friend went and said it was the Twilight Zone of drama, but also very beautiful since lots of volunteers brought wonderful art. She managed to have fun anyway. Spearhead did show up. Brett Dennon, Random Rab, lynx and janover and many others did not.
BIG UPS FOR THE ONE OF A KIND NATHAN MOORE!! <3 <3 <3
The fest made that last minute venue change, it was supposed to be in Corning (by Redding) but got moved last minute to east of Redding, closer to Lassen.
The bummer is, there was so much wonderful art and stages that people brought, lots of hard work that went crashing down in sorrow. I personally think the promoter bit of more than they could chew.
This festival is not neccessarily "established". Its been around a couple years, always in a different spot. Thats not very established.
Festy overload! Get it together, people! Thats why I pick my festivals based on well oiled machines. Festivals like Las Tortugas and Bobolink have survived 5 years because they never stepped over their boundaries and have a solid foundation and solid support with promoters that arent wishy washy.
Bummed, but I hope for less quantity, and more QUALITY from events.
