Interview with festival director Greg Bostrom.

Excerpt:

Does well-known (and somewhat militant) vegetarian Morrissey know there will be meat served on festival grounds?

Any venue requirements or specific advances from the artists that will be important to their show is discussed during the contract phase. Their camp is aware that Firefly is a festival with a lot of different venues and food options and we've discussed all those considerations. We don't anticipate any problems. There won't be any surprises when he shows up on site.

Is meat going to be allowed? I remember being at Coachella when he walked off because of the smoke coming from the food trucks. Wasn't my favorite Morrissey moment..anyway hope he comes to Los angeles and my prayers have been answered with Young gone from my life forever (hopefully)

I'm guessing, yes. Considering this is a festival and not a solo show where he rents the venue, he's not in a position to make the no meat demands.

He will not rule this thing with a veggie iron fist, but the festival organizers are apparently trying to accommodate him.

From http://news.yahoo.com/morrissey-return-us-firefly-festival-132758531.html

A notice to potential food sellers on the Firefly website said that the festival was "no longer looking for vendors offering staple menu items" such as burgers but would instead consider purveyors of a "unique menu" including vegetarian items.

They will accommodate him because they know having him on the bill will bring in the young hipster crowd.

A sensible way forward. In the UK there's usually a vegan food-stall at festivals as well as several vegetarian options. Perhaps the US is different. All they have to do is ensure that the prevailing winds don't blow bar-b-q beef smoke towards Morrissey's nostrils. Good luck with that one!

Please keep on topic. Your comment doesn't address the logistical issues of ensuring Morrissey's nostrils are protected from olfactory assault by undesired scents. I have addressed those difficulties succinctly.

No, he's invited because he will bring the hipsters parents/grand-parents along with their kids. They have the disposable income that young people struggle to attain in this economic landscape. They will spend more money, on themselves and on their kids, buying their little nest-flyers a Morrissey t-shirt before they go to Uni or whatever.

Sounds like Von Sulstrus has an "extremely narrow worldview" because he's intolerant of people like Moz who are of strong moral character.

Here's hoping Buffy brings Moz into the Great White North for a tour date or two while he is in the neighborhood. Hoping more that BSM has seal meat on her rider. Trolls: don't call me racist for that. I really hope she challenges Moz's extremely narrow worldview.

Well maybe I was imagining all the young kids at the shows I went to.

It's remarkable how a 55-year old man has so many young fans.

Oh, they're a sub-set of child abuse victims forced to listen to Morrissey by their parents until they're indoctrinated in the cult. It's a real outrage but there we go.

Not really. Mick Jagger and Keith Richards have many more. As do Jimmy Page & Robert Plant. Morrissey's just another historic relic to check out.
