I don't know. A festival director that spends his time during the festival itself rushing around like a blue-assed fly sorting problems out is one who hasn't prepared and organised properly.

Compare with Brad McEwen at the Mill Race festival (Cambridge, ON) who I saw sitting at a table at the Golden Kiwi with a beer in one hand and a walkie-talkie in the other, responding to the occasional message but otherwise relaxing in the knowledge that the the well oiled machinery is running perfectly and the properly trained and briefed staff are dealing with everything they need to.

The hard work (and he does work hard) is done before the festival starts.
