The large-scale festival experience was even better than McDonald had imagined, and he pointed out that logistically, Ace MacKay-Smith and the stage manager, Dale, did an amazing job of coordinating the local talent.

“It just went so well,” McDonald said. “Every time I went in the Barn Dance, the crowds were really good, like not just like numbers, but really responsive and really seemed to be enjoying the local talent.”

Despite all of the criticism of issues like traffic, expensive food, and dust that have been circulating in the media, McDonald said he didn’t have any negative experiences, and seemed pretty pleased with the event, as an audience member and performer.

“Every one of us was just an inch off the ground when we got off stage.”
