It’s obviously a lot easier to score well-paid festival gigs when people already know your name, but for the relatively unknown artists, finding that first festival gig is close to impossible. Or is it? One of our more popular sessions returns, and with it, another chance for ambitious artists to crack the code of festival bookings.

Learn how festival buyers and programmers go about filling the bill, and how their needs can be your opportunity.
