LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Is this the ‘brand’ we are looking for?

The SnowGlobe Music Festival has already been compared to Woodstock. In one sense that was true. There were big, young, enthusiastic crowds attending a multi-day music event with plenty of weed and brews to go around. However, unlike Woodstock, it was not a one-time event taking place on a farm out in the countryside. It was an event that was partnered by your local community college on public playing fields that provide a venue much smaller than existed at that legendary music fest.

Moreover, it had a sound system that was as big as the one used at Harvey’s Summer Concert Series but at a small venue set between residential neighborhoods – not the casino core. I hope that our college will reconsider partnering with such an event in the future. How about it, neighbors and friends? Is this the kind of blaring commercial event we want in the middle of our residential living rooms? Is this the kind of inconsiderate event we want to be “branded” with? How about changing the venue to the underused airport? If you can have a multi-day air show out there, why not a three-day music fest?
