Earlier this month we covered Los Angeles’ FYF Fest and the overcrowding/overpricing issues the festival organizers ran into this year. The head of FYF Fest Sean Carlson already responded once to complaints, but now, with a little perspective, he’s addressed fans again on the same issue.
In an e-mail, Carlson once more apologized for the problems from this year’s festival and promised they’d be addressed for next year’s event. He also volunteered to call anyone (yes, on a telephone) who has any questions, comments or complaints about the festival. All you have to do is send your phone number to this e-mail address: email@example.com.
Check out Carlson’s full e-mail below:
Let me introduce myself, my name is Sean Carlson. I am the organizer of the FYF Fest. If you are receiving this email more then likely you attended the festival.
This year we hit a few growing pains. We can and will overcome these issues and continue to organize this festival that supports independent music in Los Angeles. Our main priority is making sure you are comfortable. There were a few uncomfortable elements of the festival this year that we have already begun making the proper arrangements so that those issues won’t happen again. We are adjusting all concession prices so everything is cheaper and we are opening doors later in the day to make it comfortable for everyone to sustain seeing the whole show (12 hours is just too much) especially in downtown L.A. during a surprise heat wave.
If you have any complaints, concerns or just want to shoot the shit send me your number and I’ll call you. I want each of you to know there is a face behind the festival and that we care about you. It is important that you know this festival is not a corporation. This festival has been a labor of love since I was 18 and I am now 25 years old. I am extremely fortunate to be able to organize this event and other shows with my closest friends. We won’t let down J
Anyway, thank you for coming to the festival. This was unreal in so many ways. Thank you.
