Live Nation Hopes to Start a “Family Friendly” Music Festival

Jun 23rd, 2008 // Comment

A chicken in every pot, and a festival in every state: Live Nation is looking to bring a three-day music festival featuring “family-friendly” acts to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in lieu of the area’s annual Fort Lauderdale Air & Sea Show. They’re even paying for extra police! Given recent touring conditions and the fact that last November, a festival in just-down-the-coast Miami was canceled the day before it was set to begin, you might think that Live Nation would be cautious, but I guess a “Kidzapalooza of Florida”-type deal could be different enough to skirt the Radiohead/Jack Johnson malaise that’s hovering over the summer of ’08.
