Dean Nelson, the CEO and executive producer of the festival through his company Alpenglow Productions, said the decision by the Resort Municipality of Whistler RMOW not to grant any funding to support the festival in its 21st year lies at the root of the discussions around moving the festival. During a festival wrap-up interview Nelson wondered out loud if the festival will come back to Whistler in We've been approached by a few that love what we're doing and we may look at moving the festival or scaling it back because we just can't continue to grow it with the resources we have available to us. The only funding we get is through our corporate sponsorship, which is mostly all in-kind and through ticket sales. The reality is you cannot put on a festival based just on ticket sales because there's too many variables we don't have control over. While Nelson is open to moving the festival out of Whistler he said the 65 festival events went very well this year.
