So, I spent the middle of the day learning about “Legal Issues with Music Festivals”. It was the most enjoyable CLE seminar I have ever attended. These were the topics: “Legal issues with the band”, “Legal issues with the venue”, “Legal issues with the Chicago Park District”, and Legal issues with the proceeds”.
The dullest was the Chicago Park District piece. The most interesting was the presentation by Frank Nicotera, In-House Counsel, Milwaukee World Fest, Inc. (a/k/a Summerfest). He had the best stories to tell and he gave away free tickets to Summerfest.
