ATLANTA, Ga. -- As soon as the crowd at Music Midtown dispersed late Saturday night the tear down crews got to work.
Pretty much everyone agrees, this year's Music Midtown was a success. But the most vocal critics of the concert, who live in the neighborhood surrounding Piedmont Park, argue the city and the concert promoters are taking a huge risk every year.
"It's too big for the area, the park or the streets. So if something were to happen you wouldn't be able to address it," said Kathleen Dumitrescu with the Midtown Neighbors Association.
"Most people want to have stuff going on in their neighborhood. However, a festival that big, that's fenced in is a gamble."
A gamble that paid off this year, but we only need to rewind to last year to understand what Dumitrescu is talking about.
