I'm sure most of you have heard that this summer's Moondance Jam was the very last one. So many years of great classic rock fests are now in the rearview mirror.

So, where can all those classic rock fans go for their yearly rock & camp pilgrimage?

A few weeks ago, I went to We Fest up by Detroit Lakes, Minnesota because my wife likes country music.  Yeah, I know, I married her anyway. While I was there watching the clock tick ever so slowly, I got to thinking.

Why can't Live Nation, owner of We Fest, have a classic rock festival like Moondance Jam and have it right here on the We Fest grounds?

Obviously, they have the connections in the music industry. The We Fest grounds are already set up for a festival with a huge stage and acres and acres of campsites for campers and tents. Not to mention a trained staff.

Detroit Lakes is much more centrally located than Walker.  There are many rentals and a few hotels within a few miles of the grounds.

The We Fest grounds, believe it or not, is only used for the festival 3 days out of the whole summer. Seems like a big waste to have all that sitting there unused when it could be raking in some additional revenue and providing exiled MoonDancers a place to flock to every summer.

So, HEY LIVE NATION!  You can do this!  Take my idea and run with it. We can talk compensation later.
