Anyone know the average camp cost?

The amount you had previously suggested is not enough to do a dome, a bar, a generator, lights, sound and decor of any notability (and what about fuel for the genny, transport costs, 'private' camp areas, graywater concerns, tools to build with, consumables, nails, zip ties, stakes,rebar, bolts, screws, surge protectors, extension cords, duct tape, rental costs, 'oh shit' unexpected costs, disaster funds, 'we forgot' funds.. budget overruns..fines when some idiot serves a minor and you get busted by the cops.. speeding tickets.. etc..etc..)
50 people is too many... people do kick ass camps with similar things to what you propose with 10 or 12.. ..and well, unless they are all providing their own shit,.. lots of people might not be interested in working without some kinda 'perk' or communally shared stuff.. like kitchen/private shade/electricity/shower/etc.. (if you just need them for their money...meh)
we already probably have 200-300 of these kinds of camps, if not way more.. what makes YOUR CAMP the one they should choose? What makes you different? Why you!? You already see one DJ person who wants to do it.. but, probably aint gonna end up with too many happy campers if you have 50 DJ's in one camp all wanting to play at once!.. beyond DJs.. who might only be interested in spinning a set.. who is gonna want to build shit ? why ? how will you attract them to you?
theres a lots of things to consider... surely some camps get by without planning out so much.. but also some camps end up as disaster zones where nothing works out, theres tons of drama.. people are pissed cuz they paid $110 for some shithole and feel ripped off.. etc..etc.
if you want to be the one at the healm of such a beast youre gonna have to be willing to kick some major ass, tell people 'NO!!!' ..wrangle herds of cats... and actually pull it all off ..without freakin out and without crumbling when troubles/unknown shit occurs..
