I've read this thread since it's inception and one thing that I would like to note is that Wakarusa implies sustainability and such (greening link on home page, vendor policies, etc) but I feel whacking down trees for a few good stories- if your lucky, and 3/4 corporate advertising is ridiculous. It seems like all magazines any more are actually catalogues with a few articles. I think the planners may want to re evaluate their relationship with Outside and maybe find an alternative that would maybe be a little greener. I'm not sure what the carbon expenditure comparisons are for magazines vs dvd's, but I think they could come up with something much more creative and of better value, both environmentally and from a \"perk\" perspective.
Page 84 this month! LOL....they picked Bonnaroo and Burning Man as the got to be at festivals with no mention of WAKA! Ut....oh......cancel my subscription!
The issues I've read were pretty good. thanks for the free subscription. It did take until october to get my first issue. They should cover Wakarusa since so many Waka people are getting issues now.
[quote:c88375ced3=\"kgbnfx\"]We'll today I received my first issue of Outside Magazine. I rarely read magazines, and I didn't this one. As I leafed through the pages I noticed really no articles, but instead advertisement after advertisement. I know this is how they make money, but I really cannot relate with this trendy script. I hope in the future some music related magazine gets involved with Wakarusa and gives out subscriptions. My rant for the day! No hard feelings, I'll put it in the rack by the ****ter!

Save the trees
Ads allow you to receive that magazine for free. And it's not ALL ads, get real. It sounds like the FREE subscription should be optional.
The magazine should be contacted about some Waka coverage. Afterall, it's an awesome OUTDOOR festival, and it's way better that Tonn-o-Poo.
....I am a believer in SAVE THE TREES, read newspapers and magazines online! Trees are the ones who can really save us from global warming.
