CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (WDEF)- Since 2011, Buddies of the Competition Govt Director Mickey McCamish has witnessed the Riverbend Fesitval develop into a hit.
“The mission of Riverbend was to convey individuals into the downtown space” says McCamish. “That was its mission.”
This 12 months, the competition has been canceled, seven workers had been let go, and venue belongings like phases had been liquidated.
“Traditionally, Riverbend has funded itself with proceeds from one Riverbend to the following. Promote a wrist band. Promote a concession.”
McCamish says these funds cuts had been made to be able to give the Riverbend Competition an opportunity to outlive sooner or later.
McCamish’s objective is to host the following Riverbend Competition by the second half of 2021. When requested about ticket gross sales, he mentioned the costs might be decided primarily based on the artist and never the capability of the occasion.
