I usually only get a few tags here on the nation but honestly our festival is growing exponentially and local TV and radio plays a big part. I foresee us filling the street and busing folks in just ahead of us because we are over flowing onto the sidewalks now. We remain flexible to change and move on new ideas. Our greatest success is keeping cost down and free to the public. We hire great PR teams and get the event out to a larger crowd. I'm sharing this to not only cultivate interest but to encourage others starting up their own festivals. Locations are important to a point however I feel your event attracts people if it has the atmosphere generated by you that you yourself would enjoy and a momentum that continues throughout the day. Justin Johnson has played all our events and consistently packs the house shoulder to shoulder, literally. This is out 5th and I will step back from vending and be more PR and video photographer. One of my greatest joys comes from meeting new people and sharing our event with other events through gift swamping. It's almost caught on, BSA of France helps keep that going and we invite more so we can globalize this unique subculture.
