Re: “Moogfest and The Art of Cool Both Asked Durham for Cash. How the City Responded Says a Lot About its Future.

In response to the "Headliner Status" article in last weeks Independent. I have to question why the City or County of Durham is held hostage by Festivals to support themselves. Last year the Durham Exchange Club kicked off the "Durham Blues and Brews Festival" and it was a huge success! We never asked the city or county for one dime. The event was well planned by volunteers, not paid professionals. All funds raised were from local small business sponsors and festival attendees. Over $30,000 was raised and donated right back to several non profit organizations in our community. Your article paints a picture of two Festivals that are unable to exist without tax payer funding? Why on earth is it necessary for the residents of our community to be on the hook for these Festivals that need to either thrive or die on their own. Want to support our community and the non profits that do amazing works? Come on out May 21st to Durham Central Park and see a very well run 2nd Annual "Durham Blues and Brews Festival" that is self sustaining and making a tangible difference in our community!
