Added Mr. Boulware, “The Glow Plaza Festival Grounds will host many free festivals and special events, hosted by Jacobs Entertainment as well as third-party promoters”. Jacobs Entertainment will host a Taco Festival, as well as a Burning Man Decompression Festival, and a Future Classics event as part of Hot August Nights.
