Three promoters were waiting for good news at press time.
Live Nation was waiting to see if the Township of Pemberton, British Columbia, would bring back the successful Pemberton Festival to its scenic, but protected, locale for a second go-around.
Meanwhile, C3 Presents was waiting for the likely decision that Chicago officials would allow the Austin-based promoters to continue Lollapalooza in Grant Park for at least 10 more years.
And San Francisco officials were weighing the pros and cons of Another Planet’s summer festival in Golden Gate Park, which included the first-ever nighttime rock concerts on the site.
Outside Lands made a big impression on the SF Recreation and Parks Department, which reportedly raked in $815,000 from the event.
