Play • 28 min

In this podcast episode we are looking at how to put on a successful music festival in the GLOBAL pandemic, is this possible, or is this a step too far? Let us take a closer look - A lot of work goes into planning a music festival, from setting your goals to securing your team to then making it all happen. Even more so this year will require more planning and preparation to ensure that everyone has an amazing and safe experience at your festival. 

Some points to consider for festival planning;

Write an executive summary: This is a thorough yet succinct overview of your event and acts as an introduction to both your festival and you with your team, the event creator. It should be a minimum of 1/2 pages covering the following: What your event is and where/when it will take place, Why you are planning this festival, Your festival’s mission and overall objectives, How it benefits the local community, Your estimated income and expenditure from year 1 to year 5 (guide). 

Add Complete background & history: This gives you the opportunity to go more in-depth about your event’s history and your own background, including experience and event successes. (if this is your first event — then your history is ltd, but you still need to provide all background info).

Why do you want to plan a festival? What will it add to, and not just your bank balance, but the people attending, the event sponsors the investors, brands, and the local community? Planning a festival is not for the faint-hearted and this is your chance to show why you are fully committed to this process.

If you have worked on any festivals in the past include information, images, and testimonials. You should also use this section to position your festival in the market. What are you bringing to the table that no one else has covered before, really think hard about all this!
