Joe Donnelly's insight:

This is another great festival to help bring revenue to a city. Local in-town shows at local business is a great way to help promote not only the city but the shop where the music is being played. These festivals often hosts a lot of local bands and are able to help promote them.

Stop Making Sense is Back with a Bang in 2012

Stop Making Sense is Back with a Bang in 2012 | Music Festival Industry | Scoop.it

Stop Making Sense is a music and dance festival, a summer haven and a sunshine getaway all rolled into one. But it’s really mostly about a true love of music – and in true Stop Making Sense tradition they’re taking some of the UK and Europe’s biggest and best party starters into the sunshine for a five-day musical celebration under sun and stars…

Joe Donnelly's insight:

This is a unique festival because it does not focus on just on genre of music. Every style of band or DJ from all around the world play here, giving the audience an unlimited selection of music to dance to. This will help bring in a larger audience because of the diversity of music.

Robinson Collazo's curator insight, December 11, 2013 10:01 PM

The size of this event has in particular has grown so rapidly that it honestly took everyone buy surprise. This was the first year that this festival name has step foot in the U.S. and it made shocking number. The event its self brought somewhere around 100,000 people all traveling from across the globe. 

 

Con: At this years event I had realized something about the stage production. The stage they had used this year was the same stage they had used the previous year at one of the companies other festivals. I’m my opinion if I’m spending a large amount of money to attend this event I want to see something I have never seen before to and get my moneys worth. 

Philippe Olivier Camille's curator insight, November 9, 2014 5:21 PM

TomorrowWorld is a festival that is an expansion of Tomorrowland.

However, instead of being in Belgium during the summer, it is made in Atlanta at the end of September.

In this article, the author is comparing the two festivals. They say that in TomorrowWorld, the food quality is better and people living in the camping area have access to a better hygienic area such as clean bathrooms.

Josh Romero's curator insight, February 12, 9:54 PM

When EDM concert "Tomorrowland" came to Atlanta, Georgia for the first time to hit U.S soil, it was one of the biggest events to hit the genre. This article describes how over 100,000 people went to the event and describes the food, the living area and the showering area. The article also states that before the 3 day weekend festival began the tickets were sold out. All 180,000 tickets were sold out within seconds on the website that was up for the sales.

Joe Donnelly's insight:

Smaller festivals like this one help create revenue for towns and local business. Annual festivals have become a steady source of income for many small locally own businesses because of the vast number of people that attend. In some cases, these shops depend on festivals to reach their sales goal for the season/year.

For The Crystal World, that meant paying for high-end mastering, a rarity in the modern music industry.
Joe Donnelly's insight:

Festivals are a great way for new bands or new types of music to be heard by a huge audience. Festivals like this one focus on underground music or artist from all across the world to help promote their work. 

 

 

Pros: Music Festivals bring in huge revenue. This will help bands, local business, venders, and where ever the location the festival was held at. They're a great way for small bands or DJ's to get their name out there to a large audience. Also festivals provide many jobs ranging from set up crews, to cleaners, food, security etc...

 

Cons: Festivals tend to bring in some drug use. Also the over crowding in areas can be a hazard.
