Last year I went to We Fest up by Detroit Lakes, Minnesota because my wife likes country music.  Yeah, I know, I married her anyway. A previously undisclosed flaw. While I was there watching the clock tick ever so slowly, I got to thinking.

Why can't Live Nation, owner of We Fest, have a classic rock festival like Moondance Jam used to be and have it right here on the We Fest grounds?  It's a beautiful venue which could be put to use hosting other events.

Obviously, they have the connections in the music industry. The We Fest grounds are already set up for a festival with a huge stage and acres and acres of campsites for campers and tents. Not to mention a trained staff.

Detroit Lakes is much more centrally located than Walker.  There are many rentals and a few hotels within a few miles of the grounds.

The We Fest grounds, believe it or not, are only used for the festival 3 days out of the whole summer. Seems like a big waste to have all that sitting there unused when it could be raking in some additional revenue and providing exiled MoonDance Jammers a place to flock to every summer.

So, HEY LIVE NATION!  You can do this!  Take my idea and run with it. We can talk compensation later.
