Boonstock wants feedback

Now three weeks removed from the 2014 Boonstock Music Festival, organizers are asking the public for feedback on their experience in Penticton.

The posting on their Facebook page asks concertgoers to review their experiences, and a number of people have already shared their thoughts on what worked and what could be improved.

In the comment section, multiple responders have brought up the issues surrounding the festival grounds – namely the dusty site, lack of organization and inadequate water supply.

Others commended the lineup, while recognizing things were bound to be difficult in the festivals first year at a new location.

Anyone who completes the survey is entered into a draw for one of five pairs of VIP passes to next years show.

When Penticton city council convened following the festival, it was clear one councilor did not care for the event, referring to attendees as head banging druggies. While a final patient count of those taken from the festival grounds to Penticton Regional Hospital almost hit 100, including one death.

Organizers say they hope to return again next year.

It’s estimated that over 8,000 people attended the festival held from August 1-3.
