DO THE RIGHT THING

October 15, 2013

Sometimes it is hard to do the right thing.  For instance, for just a minute, put yourself in the shoes of Charlie, Charlie and Charles at C3 Presents.  You have had one extremely successful weekend with the Austin City Limits Festival…and closing out the second weekend, you have to cancel the final day…the night before!

Imagine having to make that call…or should we say, 1000 calls.  Every manager, agent, tour and production manager…the press, vendors, crew, staff, city…deliveries that need to be stopped, guests that need to be informed…hotel rooms, ground transportation, REFUNDS, etc.  Yet for the C3 guys, I’m betting there was never a question.

It is easy to say they had insurance, but who really knows.  Weather insurance is not only crazy expensive, you have to say when the storm is coming and how much rain will fall.  Maybe with all they do, they have a special policy…it doesn’t matter.  C3 was protecting their brand, the fans and the bands.  Doing the right thing.

Most might wait and see what the next day brought.  Not C3 Presents, they did the right thing. Nice job guys and congratulations on another great event.

You can decide if they made the right call.
