Bluesfest Backstage action


Recommended Posts

I'm volunteering for backstage hospitality at the Bluesfest this year, and during our on-site orientation last night learned that:

1. Bryan Adams and crew have their own chef

2. Blue Rodeo (wtf?) has the biggest liquor rider so far

3. Nelly Furtado has requested a "no smoking" area backstage...at this outdoor festival

4. The tragically hip, who usually ask for nothing special in their riders, usually show up and make lots of crazy demands once they get there. This year they've put a runner on-call for them just in case...and they're a security nightmare because many many ticketless fans try to get in for free.

This is turning out to be a pretty sweet gig I think! I'll report back on any artist run-ins or behaviour that warrants posting.

I'll drop a few mentions where possible. Do you know what I look like? If you see me give me some flyers and I'll pass them around.

Schedule wise, I am at the Black Sheep Stage tonight, the Main stage Monday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, and then the Black Sheep and Main Stages on Sunday next week.
