The anchor events like (New Orleans) Jazz Fest, Coachella, Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Milwaukee Summerfest and Austin City Limits have become an integral part of the touring landscape, and the market is healthier than it has ever been and growing.

The Coachella crowd, their attachment is awe, but this crowd, we are a product of that environment – we follow it, it's our life, it's our lifestyle, and we carry it on day in and day out.
