eFestivals is fund-raising

eFestivals has been here 20 years supporting festivals and festival goers. Without your support it will not continue as it has been.
Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

You can donate or sign up for 'gold' (ad-free) membership, or you can contact the editor.

The Commercialization of Music Festivals

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, I've recently chosen to study the extent of which the increase of commercialization has affected audience response to music festivals for a university research project.

The idea is to look at whether or not this is an issue which is potentially damaging to the industry, looking at a range of different festivals.

If anyone has anything they'd like to say on the subject, then please do below, some of these responses may go into my analysis and would really help me out!
I've also created a survey, which only takes a couple of minutes to fill out https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/93JS3QV

Thanks guys! If you'd like to find out the results when it's all completed and my analysis then let me know

Done.

What other data sources are you using? Presumably you aren't going to write a dissertation based on the replies to 8 questions. How many words do you have to write?

Yes, I would like to read your analysis and conclusions, thanks for offering. :)

Done.  Interested in your conclusions.  My festival going ranges in scale from Glastonbury to tiny family-run festivals with local real ale at £3 a pint.  Each has its attractions.  I did find the corporate rip off prices of the Isle of Wight a bit too much a couple of years ago and wouldn't got there again.  But with so many festivals to choose from it's not a problem.  Each to their own.

There's not much we can do about, so it's just pay up and go!

By the way commercialisation doesn't have a z in the UK!

Done, but I lied and said Glastonbury was the last festival I went to, not Park Life. I've done one day at Park Life and 11 Glastonburys.

BTW, shouldn't the last question be a part of the preceding question? Why on its own is a bit deep!

Ha ha, fingers crossed for a free pint and blowing a goat, but you're right these events management types are just normally taking advantage of our good nature!

I'm not sure why we have to suffer the complete indignation of having to drink a pint of Tuborg while you get away almost scott free by blowing a pig or some such.

Just for the record, my choice is a donkey.  Start working on that gag reflex, just in case.

I didn't fill in the survey, I rarely do for all the reasons stated all too often.  Sorry.

Oh and the survey is closed for some reason :

 

This survey is currently closed. Please contact the author of this survey for further assistance.
 
 

The survey is probably sponsored by Tuborg.

Nah I never saw them mate, but a few friends who went there did and said it was brilliant. Would have liked to have seen them on Wango Riley's Stage but I think they were playing on the Saturday which meant clashing with Funkadelic, which is a place that I defiantely wanna spend some time at next year for sure.
