Re: “Troika Music Festival turns to local stars and organization

It doesn't seem like people really mind a festival that charges admission or one where bands make guarantees, but rather a festival that doesn't manage their meager budget well. If you only have $9000, from a planning standpoint, why use a venue that costs $2500? Is it supposed to be the "extra special show" that brings the crowd? Do we really need a special location for that when its supposed to be about the music? Why book bands that won't support a local festival, one originally meant to showcase how awesome music is in the Triangle? It just doesn't seem right to pay some bands more than others, especially those that are playing at your most expensive venue. Especially if you made a decision not to bring in out-of-towners with high guarantees and ridiculous food requests. Especially not when most of your organizers and volunteers also play in bands that are performing at the festival for $100 or less or free.
