Figure out what kind of music you're going to feature. Figure out where it's going to be located. Figure out what time of year it will run. Figure out what makes it different from other similar events. Build the name from some or all of those.

Examples from a several directions:

BEMF, the Boston Early Music Festival.

NEFFA, the New England Folk Festival. (Actually NEFFA is named after its parent organization -- the A stands for "Alliance".)

The Clearwater organization's Great Hudson River Revival, more commonly known as the Clearwater Revival (not to be confused with the band Creedance Clearwater Revival).

Burning Man isn't a music festival, but is an example of naming the event after something that makes it unique and that provides a strong visual image of what (and to some degree where) it is.

Boskone isn't a music festival, but combines the concepts of "Boston (C)onvention" with a science-fiction reference to describe itself as an SF convention.

ConCertino is a music convention rather than a festival, hence the emphasis of "con" in its name.

If you don't like this approach, just pick a name that amuses you and stick with it. The Nameless. Wigout. ("I'm going to wig out; want to join me?") Fred.
