No one said that launching a music festival would be easy, especially when the point of focus is new music, and when the hosting community is an ex-urban and generally conservative city such as Santa Barbara.

Arianna Paine's partying in this community next to UC Santa Barbara came to an end the night she swigged half a bottle of Southern Comfort and fell off a 35-foot seaside cliff. Lying face down in the sand, with a swarm of tiny sand crabs jumping all over her, the 18-year-old quickly regained consciousness with the shooting pain of a broken leg, pelvis and tailbone.
