brimed03: Object lesson in poor volunteer management. TFA could have done more to explain WHY they walked off the job. Can range from "Fark this, I already got my free t-shirt" to "it's hot, we're understaffed, bosses suck, screw this."Festival spokeswoman Olivia Branch said she'd heard "no reports of anyone walking off their shifts."Frankly, from an event management perspective this is the most concerning part. Either poor communication among festival organizers or she's lying.
Treygreen13: Sounds like the kind of festival Swagneto would play at.
"...volunteers in the day parking area near Gate 1 off Oak Ridge Road walked out at about noon, "all at one time," said Capt. Ron Robertson of the Nelson County Sheriff's Department."
I've walked out on shiatty supervisors twice. One time I was hired back by his superior. Some people are just brown nosing managers who treats everyone below them like bums.

IoSaturnalia: MFAWG: Sonny Barger unavailable for comment.An Altamont joke? Too soon, man, too soon.
poppasd: not sure what kind of music you farkers are into, but the lineup of this festival is ridiculous if you're into the jam band scene. Neil Young was supposed to be here but had to cancel last minute, which is why I did too. First year festy = first world problems
Oznog: [node1.bbcimg.co.uk image 640x360]Hey, which way to the music?Should we just take the X now? I mean, this may be as good as it gets.
Pocket Ninja: Heh. I'm here now. Not at the festival but in the area. People locally have been talking about much longer delays than 4 hours. And there's much furious anger over Neil Young canceling at the last minute.
DiamondDave: "Festival spokeswoman Olivia Branch..."She sounds extended.
