Now is the time where I have handed over the band information to the stage managers handling their venue. The stage managers will make sure the bands have what they need techically and hospitality wise. The stage managers are key to the festival process and make your festival experience at each venue amazing.
I'll be hooking up with the Lead volunteers on Friday to get them up to spped with their volunteer information, positions, meal vouchers, lanyards and more. We depend on the Lead volunteers to manage the poaitions at the ten venues when the iner staff are unable to be in a million places at once. Our Leads are so crucial to a fully functioning festival community, we really couldn't do it without them and all of the wonderful community members who donate their time.
My job over the next few days leading up to the festival is to try my best to make sure I am thinking, planning and executing two steps ahead. No small document or note can be missed or miscalculated. Don't get me wrong, as with any event there will be shoe laces left untied unexpectedly but that's why we do what we do. To make sure those hiccups remin unnoticed and noted for the next year's planning.
In other news, the program is out and distributed aroumd the city. I have to admit that it is a stunning cover and the articles are great! Pick up yours today and start planning your festival stops! Don't forget to look for the food trucks for a quick bite on your travels. I am hoping to shoot a blog up within the next few days with some great dish highlights from these trucks.
Cheers to you, the Music Fan! Can't wait to see and meet you in just leas than a week!
