In 2010 I wanted to put on my own festival. As I went through the process it became clear the process was far from straight forward and I did not have enough experience nor did I have enough money to put it on. I thought about all the promoters I knew and not a single one had event management experience when they started running events. Some didn't even have business or even project management experience. They just decided one day to throw a party, friends came together to chip in money/time and they just winged it learning as they went. Some lasted 2 parties others several decades.
