Bobby:  Have been retired from my Festivals Consultation business for nearly two years.  Have not been a part of the RRR for a couple decades before that.  My memory of RRR was the 4x4 tent arrangements which were innovative for shows and festivals in the '80s.  I used this example as a good variable in planning and logistics for crowd flow and movement.  The idea made a bunch of money for me and several events adapted the idea.  RRR was quite the show...still is.
