Hope no one got hit by a trolley running through the crowd! What happened to this former jewel of a fest from the early '90s? Went from being a laid-back, world class regional music fest on the court square lawn with great food, decent arts & crafts, and great undiscovered musical act gems to an overlapping loud, poorly laid out clusterfuck with same acts every year for the last 10 years. Only fest I've ever been where you have to move every 15 minutes cuz a trolley is driving through the music. The food doesn't even come close to what it was 15 years ago either. Gets worse every year. I think I'll start riding my bike out to Shelby Farms from now on for Delta Fair. Thank god alicja, harlan, & a few other of the mid-town bands got booked; otherwise, there would be no reason to go...except to get panhandled.
