Following two successful editions of the Festival Congress in Cardiff, The Association of Independent Festivals (AIF) recently announced Festival Futures – two co-ordinated one-day conference events in Brighton and Manchester this April. Both events will feature festival promoter keynotes, quick fire ‘Talking Heads’ sessions and fireside chats with industry experts alongside opportunities for networking with the leading lights of the festival world.
Topics under discussion will include the importance of multi-arts and family content, the food revolution at festivals, connections between streaming platforms and ticketing, the impact of virtual reality and other new tech, the importance of grassroots venues and the connection with festivals, festival finances and event safety.
Presented in association with leading music education provider BIMM and ticketing agency Skiddle, these all-day events will take place at BIMM Brighton (Tuesday 5th April) and BIMM Manchester (Thursday 7th April), with a mix of BIMM students, industry and those interested in industry expected to attend.
Tickets cost £50 for AIF members and friends, and £100 general sale.
