Re: “Art of Cool Fest 2016 Wasn’t the ‘Coachella’ of Jazz, and That Was a Good Thing

How is the author going to write an article stating that this wasn't Coachella if he's never been. I'm surprised that I kept reading after that...

I read the article on HuffPost and I like the comparison to Coachella of Jazz. When I think of Coachella (after actually attending it), I think of people from all walks of life uniting and letting go of their differences for the love of music. When I attended AOC, I felt the same feeling. Of course there aren't going to be many white millennials at a jazz festival no matter where it is held, which isn't even the point that the article is making. Also, as a Durham native, I appreciate that the article intended to attract a younger audience which was perfect for the modern jazz line up. I definitely saw a younger crowd at this festival compared to previous years. In your article, you compare the festival to other festivals that many millennials haven't even heard of. Why should AOC not strive to receive ultimate accolades? Cicely has every right to be proud.

This festival is honestly one of the best grassroots efforts to come out of Durham and it is black-owned. With all of the support that Indy gave to this festival, I did not expect to see such a "half-baked" post like this. Why would the author compare anything from the acclaimed Kamasi Washington to "gutting an animal"? Also, does the author not know that the Internet is Grammy nominated? Did he not realize that the event was sold out? I am honestly appalled.
