If You Book It, Will They Come?: The Festival Market At A Crossroads

The festival scene has come to dominate the summer music market. But with growth often comes an identity crisis – in this case one that will ultimately affect the bottom line. Ticket sales are driven by two main factors – the quality of the lineup, and the proximity of the event. You can’t change your place in space, but you can carve an identity based on your musical offerings. The trouble is, competition has created a sellers’ market for talent, and you may find your lineup looking identical to others down the road. This panel will look at the future of festival branding and fan loyalty.
