No Music Festival this Year

They talked about it so long, that they ran out of time. Lubbock's Annual Music Festival has been cancelled this year, because naming negotiations ran too long.

According to the Entertainment Task Force, the City has granted money for an annual music festival. And for years, it has been called the Buddy Holly Festival, but due to the cost of using Buddy Holly's name, the City has decided to call it instead "The Lubbock Texas Music Festival".

"There's a lot in the name. And a lot of music festivals go by the name of the city it's in. Everyone's heard of the Newport Jazz Festival, it's world famous. Why not call the festival, The Lubbock Texas Music Festival. And now that the Council seen fit to really try to reinvigorate this I think we can make it bigger than it's ever been," said Don Caldwell, Chairman of the Entertainment Task Force.

Chairman organizers say that this year, time ran short to thoroughly plan the event, so the task force is looking ahead to planning a show for the Fall of 2005.
