Festivals are a sure-fire hit
News: 22nd September 2010 by Louise Dodgson under Live
The popularity of the music festival is at an all time high. There's nothing quite like sitting in a field in the sun (or quite often the rain!), plastic pint glass in hand whilst you take in some of your favourite acts. It's not just the traditional outdoor festival environment that strikes a chord with the UK public, and these days the indoor festivals are proving to be a hit as well.
With city-based festivals such as Swn, The Great Escape and Camden Crawl securing great line-ups year upon year, and the likes of All Tomorrow's Parties taking over out-of-season holiday parks, you don't need to be deterred by the weather, time of year, or the prospect of temporarily setting up home in a claustrophobic tent. Festival season can now be enjoyed all year round!
With live music and festivals providing such a crucial revenue stream for the music business, not to mention the UK economy, it is important that everything possible is done to sustain and develop this. A forthcoming event organised by Music Tank, 'Saving The Golden Goose: Improving The Live Experience', will broach this very topic and a plethora of knowledgable keynote speakers will be there to share their thoughts and experience. Full details can be found below, plus a couple of recent articles about the flourishing festival market.
