jason: "I can see an event that grows into a large central city festival, highlighting the amazing venues and spaces that exist in an easily-forgotten part of town"

The parts outside the downtown? Agreed.

The Pearl and the Cotton Centre are both around 2.5km from Gage Park (I believe the Pearl is actually block or two closer to Gore Park than Gage Park). It's somewhat like linking James North and Locke South – there may be a number of compelling parallels, but it's possibly a bit of a reach.

If I might make another totally implausible suggestion, how about bringing back Earthsong? Wouldn't it acknowledge a gaping hole in the festival landscape, and perhaps be an easier funding sell than more of the same Folk/Roots/Country/Blues fodder that is a little too familiar/flat?
