Have any of you ever been involved in the promotion, planning, hosting, vendor, sponsorship, venue allocation and other assorted aspects of putting together a music festival? Another local band leader (zep trib band) and I (KISS trib band) came up with the idea of putting on a mock rock kinda trib band festival with three or four headliners, including ourselves and other iconic trib bands of that era. Varying enough to draw a wide audience, but similar enough that people would probably dig all the bands involved - so sticking to classic 70's rock as a basic format. Anyway, I'm looking for sort of a model template precedent to draw inspiration from. I've heard of some events like this but I'm having some trouble tracking them down online. Any thoughts from you band management types on this would be helpful. I'm a pretty savvy business guy with some promotions and ad sales experience, but this isn't the kind of thing I've done before. If we do well with this in our test market (Tulsa, OK) we'll look at touring it to other midsize cities and involve other local trib bands.
