Name recognition is fine, as long as there's no geographical tie to it. EX: Download, Sonisphere, etc.

They should move MDF to Keswick. But nothing happens here, I'd settle for the Havlock Jamboree.

The Dakar Rally comes to mind! It used to be the Paris to Dakar Rally, then they shortened it to The Dakar, then moved it to South America, halfway around the world from Dakar!

Rock In Rio has always been called Rock In Rio, even when it was in Lisbon, Portugal.
