SiloFest Management

Ok so im doing some forum cleanup and making a few threads for each topic. this one is what to do WITH the silo once we get it.

we already know that it will be called silofest and we will use it to host venues but we dont know exactly how the layout will work or where anything will be such as stages, stores, etc.

we are open to all critisism (if legit) and ideas you may have. plz if you think you have an idea that might help even a little BRING IT UP!

I think you should contact the seller of the silo and see if you can get more in depth photos. If we can get a good look at where everything is we can give suggestions as to put what where.

I agree, i think that if we let the seller know what we are doing, than all the better! I agree, i think that if we let the seller know what we are doing, than all the better!

HOLY BALLS. If we get all that, then well, we will have no problem with space, here is my suggestion to this

The power house be used for its purpose and get it running up to par to power the place.

The control center could be used for the main stage

the antenas can remain antenas ad get our own radio station coming out of this (easier sponsors as well)

Launcher 1 be like a area for personal sales amoung guitar players

Launcher 2/3 be for our sponsors

ok thank you gourd for the diagram of the silo!

now elusive has a prettyy good layout for the place but im still not sure if the room is big enough for a stage. lets see if we can find the area of the stage area (including crowd seatings and mosh pit) for ozzfest and well compare that to the size of the control room.

well I am pretty sure the room would be big enough, it is a military instalation and the U.S. likes things big...... but if it is not big enough we would have to have the shows above ground and we could turn that into something else. well I am pretty sure the room would be big enough, it is a military instalation and the U.S. likes things big...... but if it is not big enough we would have to have the shows above ground and we could turn that into something else.

this is a site for the missile silo, i think, with pictures of the outside.Are we sure they will sell it to us, because the ebay listing looks like it is for renting?

Its not that we forgot. I mean if the control room is to small for the actual venue then we can have the stage on the ground level.

yeh what might happen is the actual show is ground level and places for control rooms, security, and band lounges can be underground. hows that sound? yeh what might happen is the actual show is ground level and places for control rooms, security, and band lounges can be underground. hows that sound?

I think that's a pretty good idea but where are our sponsors going to be?

Note on the picture that gourd posted, there is a break in the tunnel between the antennas and the crossroad near the control room. Note on the picture that gourd posted, there is a break in the tunnel between the antennas and the crossroad near the control room.
