For those of you who didn't see enough of the artists that you wanted in either lineup or are completely dissatisfied with what's on offer this summer, I can only encourage you to create your own fests. Build it and they will come!
Don't think it can be done? Take a page from Jody Orsborn. Creator of the folk blog When You Awake, she along with Bobby Kittleman and Phil Eastman have created a new festival called Free For All Festival which is happening on August 15th at the Echoplex.
The concept behind this festival is daring. It's a pay-what-you-want, ticketless music & arts experience, which means the promoters are fronting the cash in hopes that the audience will donate what they can to pay the bands. It's a gutsy way of running a festival, but with such a solid lineup (Akron/Family, Langhorne Slim, Active Child, Frank Fairfield, to name a few) and craft booths from The Coachella Arts Studios they should have no problem covering costs.
They've even left part of the lineup up to you! There is a contest for a bunch of local bands to make the bill. Check out their contestant page and vote on who you'd like to see. Lord knows you guys are opinionated!
