As we've noted that there's a possibility of a fall festival emerging in the future, and the dichotomy of the bands/crowds from this year's fest. Would it make sense to have a separate festival for the fans of the bands of Stone Roses, New Order, Nick Cave etc? Would the turnout have been larger for Blur/Roses if tickets had been sold after they were announced as headliners?
Every year the same bands come up in request threads:
Tears for Fears, Simple Minds, The The, etc..
Yet with the dwindling attendance for these sets, their slot in the lineup might not justify the cost in the future.
Perhaps the answer could be a Stagecoach size fall festival with a focus on these acts. There are still plenty of headliners that could fit into this branding (Cure, Depeche Mode, etc..)
Would you go?
