No it is fine, there are plenty of these. The only issue is if you dont get a front row spot, it is unlikely you will be able to see the stage due to other Kelty's blocking your view.

Good question.  The problem with Keltys (in my opinion) is that they are so low that they obstruct views for people set up behind them.  This is not necessarily the fault of the owners of these tents but perhaps an area of improvement for Planet Bluegrass' management of the tent areas.  In a perfect world, I'd like to see EZups in their own section (or given priority toward the front?) because they're tall enough that folks behind them can see right through to the main stage.  However, it's far enough back that you can't really see a lot anyway so maybe it's not as big of a deal as I'm making it out to be.

So to answer your question, just be mindful of where you set it up and do your best to be a good Festivarian by accommodating your neighbors.

It is strange being that Kelty is a sponsor and vendor at TBF, you'd think they might design a festival specific sunshade. Easy ups are nice also because they can be joined together with others to form a continuous area of shade.

How come they don't turn the banjo up?

Totally agree!  Moreso the straight leg ones.  Angled leg versions don't work too well for this.
