Red Sky Music Festival wrapped up over the weekend and it went well.
A recent column discussed the need for Red Sky to figure itself out. Those criticisms (namely having one day off in the middle of the festival) still stand, but I wanted to explore what worked and what didn’t after attending the festival.
I’ve been asked a few times, “Was it better than last year?” Yes and no.
This year’s festival didn’t have the six-day runtime of last year, but there was that one-day gap. This year’s festival had the advantage of being partly over a weekend, but Saturday’s daytime crowd was tiny.
Paisley’s one of this year’s top 50 worldwide tours and Rascal Flatts is in the top 50 in North America, according to Pollstar.
