that mad decent fest was definitely not a “troll.” it was heavily
promoted at the big festival here (boston calling) and the billie eilish show in june (she was one of the headliners and i’m betting she fueled a lot of ticket sales). the stadium where it was held was likely banking on it being huge as its concert schedule this year was much more sparse than 2018’s, which had taylor, beyoncé/jay-z, and two kenny chesney shows as its high points (this year there were only five shows total counting mad decent).

that said the heat this past weekend would have likely put the kibosh on it like it did with ozyfest in nyc. miguel can’t catch a break!

never underestimate the festival promoter with "ideas" who books a bunch of different acts hoping they'll attract several distinct groups and bump up ticket sales

tunes on the sand upthread has nailed the 'regional lib dem' aesthetic

given the 80k capacity (and less than gushing publicity), i am suspicious that the ozyfest cancellation was a lucky case of them being able to make more money through insurance than ticket sales but what do i know.
