The curators divided “Spectacle” into nine themes, exploring the idea of music video genres. “While feature films have established genres — comedy, action, drama — music videos do not,” Wells explains.

Alexander Torre's insight:

Music videos are a awesome way to make current listeners happy. When at a festival for instance it is a great idea to have to proper equipment an be able to film the band playing live. With technology increasing this is really good for the artist or band.

How music festivals are singing the changes

How music festivals are singing the changes | Lighting Design | Scoop.it
Live music events have quickly become a key route to profitability for the record industry

Via Hugo Alberto Zarate Salazar
Alexander Torre's insight:

Many artist make money through festivals and venues. The rise of festivals is changing. There are many smaller festivals now arising and growing in size. This is a place where people can share the same musical influence. This article says how Britain alone has about 670 events. This is not to mention all the ones outside that area.

Hugo Alberto Zarate Salazar's curator insight, February 12, 2014 6:29 PM

Live events like music festivals are being the first form of revenue for the industry. The artist get their part and even the marketing team from a record company. Music festivals represent movement of the economy from each place they are held. On the UK, music festivals are one of the fastest growing sectors, and this is also the case for many other countries. Many live events are being created and some of them, like smaller ones, are closing. Even though some festivals can't keep up, industry is healthy with new events opening each year.

Rilee Jackson's curator insight, September 13, 2014 11:43 AM

Nowadays, the main way for the industry to make money isn't by selling records, it's by selling tickets to see a live show. Within the past 25 years, music festivals continue to grow which started out from nothing. A majority of the money gained is by the tickets sold while the rest is made by selling food, merchandise, sponsorship, etc. at live shows. It doesn't surprise me that most money gained is by selling tickets for shows, especially when those who sell the tickets are planning to put on a hell of a show. Also, when people are taking time off work or school and paying for a ticket with their rent money; people want to experience as many as live performance as possible. There are more festivals being created or planned up almost every year which makes the festival-goers that much more happy.

Alexander Torre's insight:

The Chicago Dancing Festival it the largest in North America. This was Founded by Jay Frane and Lar Lubovitch in 2007. This shows the true passion behind the meaning of dancing to beautiful music and all sharing the same passion for dance. Dance is a way to help relieve stress and take your mind off things. When people share the same music influence or in this case dance they all are happy and slowly evolving learning new things.

How Music Festivals Have Changed in the Last Twenty Years

How Music Festivals Have Changed in the Last Twenty Years | Lighting Design | Scoop.it
Festivals have changed dramatically in this time - when the first T in the Park took place in 1994 the only other UK festivals were Glastonbury, Reading and WOMAD - now there are literally hundreds all over the country and they have gone from just being a place where you watch bands outdoors, to an entire four day experience or a long weekend away.

Via Hugo Alberto Zarate Salazar
Alexander Torre's insight:

The music scene is changing for the best. These small places were bands used to come play have now changed in to 4 day events of non stop music. One thing that has not changed is everyone's passion for music. The festival scene is growing and become bigger and bigger each day. More and more people tend to these events. The pros in this is that the artist get to do collaborations with other artist. They get to play multiple nights in a row. They also get a chance to hear other musicians like them selves that could have some influence on them.  A negative side to this could be 4 days away from everything. Many people to not bring enough things for the festival or tend to forget things and not pack enough clothes for the temperature.

Hugo Alberto Zarate Salazar's curator insight, February 12, 2014 6:14 PM

Many cities are well known by the music festivals that are held there. Scotland is one of them, even though it does not sound like a musical city at all. Music festivals have grown dramatically over the last twenty years that now festivals are not just live music acts, people are asking more from them due competence from other music festivals. The only thing that has never changed is the passion for music.

Rilee Jackson's curator insight, September 12, 2014 12:45 AM

This supports just how dedicated fans can be; traveling out of the country to see their favorite musicians perform. Twenty years ago only 17,000 people attended this festival in Scotland as oppose to now, roughly 85,000 music lovers attend. This just comes to show how much music festivals have and continue to grow worldwide.
