We are still in the works of nailing down the headliner for Saturday night and if my 1:11PM wish comes true, I will be writing the happiest blog ever :) And no, I won't be spilling any hints!!
On the up and up of notes, we met with all of the stage managers Wednesday night at Tellus360.
So now that I am back in town, I really need to get more in the loop with all of these new places that have popped up over the years. Tellus360 is one of our venues for the festival and the only way I can describe it is Rad. Yes, I still favor that word! When you walk in there is the Front stage right in front of the window facing the street. A fairly decent sized bar, a DJ setup, tables and if you venture in to the back, you will find the Main Stage. If you check the schedule HERE, you can find out what bands are playing which stage. Heck you could go from one room to the next all day for two days if you wanted! Our meeting was upstairs, and I mean... Up Up stairs! There is a mini second floor where the kitchen posts up and then in the 360 whirl, you'll find the top level. Here you can sit around and gossip, grab a drink at the other bar, play ping pong, read a book or get jiggy with it. Super cool place, and I'm super glad they are on the bill. You can check out their site HERE.
Anywho... the stage managers. Man there is a lot of history through music and Lancaster with this group. I could sit and listen to them chat all day. From old security guards, drummers, bass players, singers... you name it and they were there and still play to the day. The meeting went well and everyone has their info and guidelines which is a great start as the countdown continues to roll forward. It's amazing to have such a great team in charge of each venue. Most are repeat from last year and a few newbies, but even the newbies have their heads on straight and ready to rock. What a relief! When you have a great team by your side, no matter what obstacles come across your path, you will always find a way.
