city girl commented on Mr. Tom Tom: Beyer sees bands and innovation together
The discussions bringing innovators together to brainstorm and share ideas seems to be the most valuable and " innovative "part of this festival . But again, valuable for locals - not a draw for out of towners. And aren't there taxpayer funded economic departments of local government that should be...

The festival as a whole is what is attempting to foster cross pollination and it has a large focus not only on music and art, but also innovation. Have you looked at the website? http://tomtomfest.com/ This is the first year, so I am sure things will evolve in the future, but it seems like...

I think this festival is worth at least $5000 since they are having a very important Pinterest presentation.
city girl commented on Mr. Tom Tom: Beyer sees bands and innovation together
I'm not opposed to giving city money for festivals, but I don't see this particular festival increasing business, or expanding the circle of opportunity that already exists among the facebook crowd. A unique festival not already saturated with local events would draw a different population to the...

Artistic cross pollination would makes sense if there was a unique event where musicians, and artists from other disciplines performed together, but I don't see that happening. How does holding a block party in front of the McGuffey Art Center foster cross pollination ? And the downtown is swarming...

City girl "One art form getting little attention in town is dance" What about motorsports? Before the Livestock Market down in Hogwaller was a dirt track. Mr Beyer has lots of spare land where he could host demolition derby, dirt track, etc. The best culture is Agri Culture.

I agree with City Girl completely. Not to mention that the city has given him all this money, upwards of $5000 at least. Does ANYBODY think that this is ok? The Tom Tom Festival is FOR PROFIT people! Your tax dollars are funding a FOR PROFIT festival that we don't even need. They are seeking...

Has he received his cease-and-desist yet from the Tom Tom NV the GPS company?
city girl commented on Mr. Tom Tom: Beyer sees bands and innovation together
Charlottesville feels like an ongoing music festival year round. And with so many venues and choices every week of the year, I wonder if this isn't superfulous. I can see the point of the book festival and the film festival but more concerts ? One art form getting little attention in town is dance...
