What fests are you going to that feature national touring bands for $5? Local bands, sure, I've seen plenty of those at a $5 street fest but for something national, you're usually in the $10 range.
That said, kind of an unfair complaint since the music lineup for this fest hasn't been released, so who knows what $10 will get you? And again, the food is the draw here, as most street fests around town have the same basic vendors providing the same kind of street food. I'm fine with having to fork over an extra $5 for much better eats.
