A group of college buddies in love with the music scene of New Orleans share a vision for a national festival, which kick-starts a new era; free-thinking citizens of Northern California create full-moon gatherings which beget a global culture; a small print magazine looks beyond the listings page, to the live stage. In these three live case studies, panelists from Bonnaroo, Burning Man and Northside offer their insight, discuss the next generation of issues and challenges, and share more than a few anecdotes.
