IF a music convention is on-line

Post by jdstamper » Mon Jun 08, 2020 1:14 pm

Don't get me wrong. I don't want the Rally to be held only on-line this year, probably no one does.

But I'm curious to see what happens this year with Sweetwater Gearfest, which will be held on-line for the first time, June 26-27

Gearfest normally has 15,000 - 20,000 attendees, in person. Not a good idea with the pandemic.

Like the Rally, most of the fun and excitement is in being there, meeting people, etc. It will be interesting to see how they do it this year.

At least parking will be easier. :)

Hello Jim,
It's not very reassuring to see that the number of people infected is on the rise in several states including California. The biggest obstacle for travelers will probably be medical insurance.

I've never had problems getting med. insurance in the past but I've shopped around just to get the pulse of the market and I haven't found any companies willing to cover the costs of hospitalization related to the virus.
