I have had the idea for this post for several years actually. After seeing TCD post yet another post on the value of crossing the stage and AGAIN seeing people passionately argue for both sides of the story I think its time to suggest something different.
For years we have argued the Pros and Cons of the stage. But do the same thing every year expecting a different result.
Instead, try this.
When the drinks trucks pull off and pass along side the savannah to meet the band on the other side, PLEASE just send one or even maybe 2 music trucks with them. Those who do not care about the stage (LIKE MEEEEE!) can take a nice chip down that relatively shady street with 8 drinks trucks and lots of hydrated, drunk people to party with while the “stagers” char-broil over there
in living hell on the savannah to cross the stage.
I have a hard time believing that no one has thought of this before so I am sure there is a VERY good reason it has not been implemented yet. I would really love to know that reason though.
In any case I would LOVE all the powers that be to really give this plan a bit of consideration as it would make both sides of the fence content.
