My experiences of the Los Angeles Festival were somewhat different from Laura Zucker's (Counterpunch, "Los Angeles Festival Discovers the People," Sept. 17). While the festival was supposedly more accessible than the 1987 edition, I found it far more difficult to get seats. I dispatched my order form a day after receiving it in the mail and received tickets for about 60% of the events I had requested, versus about nine out of 10 in 1987. I wound up spending just a little more than half of my 1987 festival budget.

Most of the artists are from Ventura, but residency is not a requirement, Zucker said. "The performances must appear in Ventura between July 1 and June 30, 1993," she said.
