I have yet to figure out why VEISHA doesn't bring a huge concert to Ames and have it at Hilton during the weekend. It would be nice to have a headliner play instead of garage bands that nobody has ever heard of.
They do not have the money and everybody expects everything at VEISHEA to be free...simple as that.
I believe I read that they spent 100k on music this year or last.
The problem is they want to put on these long musical shows for 4 or 5 hours on both Friday and Saturday. Meaning they have to pay more for having so many acts. Part of this was because of the last riot and keeping people away from "alcohol related events".
Back in the "old days" they used to have a big headliner then some smaller bands done at a separate time. Now with the emphasis on alternative entertainment they are sinking a lot of money in to a lot of bands.
