Like 6th Street in Austin meets Ingenuity Fest

This is a great idea - Ingenuity Fest created some of these dynamics - what is described also makes me think of 6th Street in Austin, where the marketplace has created a similar experience... there are so many bars competing in just a few blocks that they all have live music every night, so you go from blues to ska to metal just by walking door to door. So what would a sustainable model for such an experience look like in Cleveland?

Perhaps the Flats offers a venue - plenty of space - history of drawing huge crowds - if the community focused on something like this instead for a tent full of poker players... such big ideas can succeed.
