70,000 tons of metal It was one of the unique and/or most innovative ideas to infiltrate the live music scene in the last decade.

“You have to see it took me from the point where I had that totally crazy idea,” pills Tell FixionMedia.com In a 2014 interview “It took me almost four years to get the ship into the water, so to speak. My thought from the start was to make the ship as an annual event, due to the fact that it would work. When you start a new business, you never know if It would have worked or not. Isn’t that what you aim for? Otherwise I wouldn’t have put four years of my life into it. I wanted to do it as an annual thing, not spend four years of my life for once.”

pillsHis extensive background in European live industry has given him an up close and personal look at the venerable outdoor festival business that dominates the summer landscape. Seeing how well these festivals worked, along with a few drinks and some friends during a warm summer’s night in his Vancouver apartment, helped come up with an idea 70,000 tons.

“I’ve never organized big festivals,” he noted. “I started as a local promoter in Europe, then moved on to tour houses. Then I worked as a tour/production/road manager for 15 years and that eventually brought me to Vancouver. It wasn’t that far off. Not like a banker or a dentist coming up with this. …I had quite an idea and connections on how this could work, and had attended most of the major European outdoor festivals. That was the idea – just cut it short and put it on a cruise.

“People thought I was crazy to do a metal festival on a cruise ship,” he continued. “They thought it was crazy to put 40 bands in there, and now we have 60 bands. The idea is that the middle band has five musicians, and if you have 40 bands, that’s 200 guests. It’s a band in a 1 to 10 ratio, and that really created a special atmosphere. Because there are a lot of musicians around. I’m sure he would have worked with fewer bands, but the question is, where’s the breaking point? A lot of people are worried that we’re going to enlarge it and lose the intimacy factor etc. I think it won’t, but just to keep The principles of the event are the same, OK, we added 1,000 people and we have to add another 20 bands. Now there are 3,000 guests and 60 bands.”
