A short introduction to the International Festival Forum (IFF)…
The International Festival Forum in association with TicketSwap moved to a new campus location this year. With room for more delegates and showcases than ever, the ninth edition of the world’s top event for the music festival business moved up a gear in 2023.
IFF 2023 took place in south London music venue Omeara with live music across two stages throughout. The venue and surrounding spaces formed the IFF Campus, with numerous bars, ample networking and meeting spaces, a food court and restaurant.
Since launching in 2015, IFF has become the leading annual meeting place for festivals and booking agents, bringing the industry’s principal buyers and sellers together for 2.5 days of networking, showcases, and debate.
The invitation-only event takes place in the autumn, when conversations about the following year’s festival line-ups are well underway. IFF is backed by some of the most renowned international booking agencies in the world, as well as by many of the world’s leading music festival associations and live music companies.
Over 1,000 delegates attended in 2023, representing tens of thousands of artists and over 750 festivals from around the globe.
The IFF Campus is located at Omeara (6 O’Meara St, London SE1 1TE)
