Doing the Atten-dance: Turn Out Matters
How does it happen that with less than a month’s notice, your favourite band in the world is coming to town? Sure, it’s one of the best surprises that will make your day, but on an international scale, very few large-scale gigs and festivals are announced with just a month’s notice. It’s been happening far too often in India, and the victim is the attendee. It’s no surprise, then, that people complain about low turnout for shows – whether they are open-air festivals or club shows with a big name attached.
