Monterey Jazz Festival – the best music festival in the world?

September 17, 2013

Ryan Ritchie of the SF Weekly posits that the Monterey Jazz Festival may be the best music festival in the world.  

The reasons he cites include seating, bathrooms and jazz. Oh, and this:

4. The Weed Area
There’s no music more suited for weed than jazz, but like ‘Nam and bowling, there are rules at the Monterey Jazz Festival, and one of those rules (okay, laws) says that you can’t just walk around smoking doobs like your middle name is “Indica.” That said, there is a secret spot at the fairgrounds where stoners can get wastey that, from what we’ve, uh, seen, no one seems to patrol. And by “no one,” we mean cops. Or maybe they don’t care. Either way, it’s a win-win. Are we going to tell you where that spot is? No, because we’re not narcs. But if you happen to overhear some coughing in that tiny area between the bathrooms and the chain-link fence … well, let’s just say it’s not an asthma convention.
