Exactly, if enough people would support it. And there lies the problem! I don't think the US is the right place. I am pretty much convinced that you would have a much better chance of being successful at every level, were you to opt for Sweden.

Maybe I am being too negative, but the way I see it, things are not exactly improving in terms of sales and disposable income. The US have forgotten about melodic rock. It is non-existent. There is no scene left at all. So my question is: why do you insist on doing it in the US? That is really the main concern for me. I honestly do not see any reason to do it in the US. The US is a big NO. Sweden or Germany would be supportive of such a festival. Not the US: if you're not in the charts or if you did not have several hits, forget it (again your friend Luke can certainly confirm that. Even as a solo artist he is doing decent business in Europe, admittedly playing to about 500-1000 people but it seems to be viable as he continues to do it. He however could not be arrested in the US). Europe is the place to be for genres that are not in the US charts: look at the amount of blues or jazz artists touring Europe!

You know enough people in Sweden to get the advices and support you would need.
