Thread Name: Meeting artists at festivals?
Subject: RE: Meeting artists at festivals?
It isn't likely to happen at large/big festivals for a few reasons.
1) Many of the performers have warm-ups to do, etc., and they haven't the time before they perform.
2) They are often 'confined' to an area that doesn't allow the general public access to either the performers or their instruments.
3) Some performers attract lots of people and the hour they have to spend is taken up with 'press the flesh' and make-nice small talk.
It's unfortunate, but too often that's the way it is.
