We went to Djangofest LA last Saturday, and perhaps I was a little underwhelmed.
Don't get me wrong - the concert was great - Jessica Fichot, Andreas, Gonzalo and our own Doug Martin. The workshops were OK, but sparsely attended. There wasn't really a lot of jamming throughout the day, which I was expecting more of - just a few guys for a little bit out on the sidewalk. Somehow I was under the impression that there were vendors with stuff to try. The after-concert jam was just too late in the evening with a two-hour drive home.
All in all, there was a ton of downtime with a few high spots. Is this typical of all Djangofests, or was this particularly low-key?
