Edstock started out as just a fun backyard party. Now, it is an annual, intimate music festival held once a year, invitation only, attended by between 100 and 200 people and lasts three days. It's a more a hobby than a job, but organization and implementation takes a huge effort. Maintaining this as an annual event has taught me great organization skills, leadership skills, and promotional ability.
It's all volunteer, nobody gets paid. Supported by donations.
I have recently started a website to unite and inform the Edstock community, http://edsparty.com, which is currently under development. It will be a directory of music venues and musicians, and it's goal is to unite musicians with listeners and dancers.
