    I have to disagree with the use of a Cal Poly venue for these gatherings. There are plenty of private locations for this type of exposure. Cal Poly is not an entity that should be competing against private enterprize. From where I stand I see unfair competition because Cal Poly operates under rules that are not afforded to the general public.

    Sure I like music and fun times but why don’t we use, let’s say a large Caltrans parking lot? Caltrans could use the revenue too! The question I’m trying to elevate is what state agencies are allowed to go after these party dollars and why?

      Good point . I would say, no tax payer supported entities should be in competition with private enterprise. How about only private venues such as Vina Robles or Pozo?

        You mean “separation of profit and state”?

        This concert was hosted by Cal Poly ASI. That organization’s funding is purely private (i.e. student-based fees, public events, fund raising, etc…).

      What you’re missing is that associated students, inc hosted this event in the recreation center, which is also owned by ASI. ASI is funded by the students, thus “Associated Students, Inc.” It’s not exactly tax payer money and property they used.
