I am hoping to start up this festival and I want it run by the youth in our state. I will have them actively involved in something that they can be responsible enough to handle on their own with minimal supervision I.e. ticket sales, promotions, flyer hanging, helping me with organization, and other engaging activities. I also want to try and save the local music talent. We have several bands in my area that just need to be promoted more. After a few failed attempts at making it big they give up and move on to other things. Our music programs are slipping. No one in this area is even interested in playing an instrument. I am hoping to try and make it seem like "the cool thing" to become involved in. I have several ideas and have been working on this for almost a month. Jotting down ideas when they come to me.
