And kicking off the conference on Wednesday 25 Sept will be:
The Festival Season 2019
Chair: Greg Lowe, United Talent Agency
With the 2019 festival season now wrapped-up, it’s time to take stock of the key issues, successes, trials and tribulations. As the festival market continues to consolidate and with fund-backed operators buying-up independents, what’s the impact on the ground for both bookers and agents? Organisers face new pressures to gender-balance line-ups while juggling rising costs and escalating fees, while on the agency side, the pressures of signing and retaining artist clients show no sign of reducing. It’s enough to question why we all do it… so how was 2019 for you really? This now-established IFF session kicks off the conference proper, setting the tone for many conversations that follow.
