What did you guys think of Virgin Festival?
Who was your favorite act? What do you think could have been done better?
In today's story, promoter Seth Hurwitz said the festival was a success, and he hopes to bring it back for another year. I couldn't get a hold of rebel billionaire Richard Branson yesterday, but he reportedly said "See you next year" before leaving Sunday. So it looks like we might get Virgin Fest 2008.
As far as festivals go, I think the Virgin Fest was excellently run. Most bands went on within minutes of their scheduled start time, the sound quality was as good as you're gonna get for a festival, and the shade tents and free water refilling station were nice touches. If possible, I'd like to see more shade tents and another water tanker there next year.
Overall, Hurwitz, Branson and the rest of the festival staff deserve a big round of applause. Great job, guys. Let's do it again.
