Risks and challenges

The biggest risks are planning out a new event @ a new music venue with no guarantees & virtually no initial budget, but optimistic diligence needed to pull it off meeting minimal expecations, & high hopes.

The biggest challenges so far have been managing the time it takes to curate, recruit, book, network, market, direct, host, & customer support such a complex event like a 2 day (11 hour each day) DIY independent music festival.
We are extremely concerned about all the unforseen challenges revealed closer to time of event, during, & after.

Started with virtually no budget except the meager funds provided by L.E.A.D. creator's personal savings.
