Since festivals are all the rage these days...I was wondering: what if a festival promised non-stop music for, say, three or four days?
I'm not quite certain how many bands that would be, but we're talking about 24 hours of music. That means nite owls could enjoy some Metal at 4 a.m. and early birds can rock out at 8 a.m. I highly doubt both groups were ever intersect because, well, humans need sleep.
The prospect of paying for a ticket and enjoying live music at any moment of the day is quite intoxicating. Still, there would be lots of questions: if the music is non-stop, when do the headliners play? Who plays at 3 a.m.? 9 a.m.? How do you have enough staff to support such an event?
My guess is that headliners could still play around 11 p.m. and smaller or more obscure bands could play in the true dead of night.
Here are some bands I think could, ahem, "set the night on fire."
Here's Stars from Mars
Here's Pretty Boy Floyd
So what do you think of my band choices to play in the "dead of night?" More importantly, do you think a 24/7 festival is possible? I think it sounds both fun and downright exhausting. I await your comments.
