Our Voice: Music festivals are a boost for our economy
The Desert Sun
Rates rise in the winter and soar in the spring when the back-to-back Coachella festivals come along, followed by Stagecoach: California's Country Music Festival.
Derek Rammel's insight:

The amount of money that a music festival can produce spans across multiple aspects of the community.  Hotels are especially effected.  Most hotels raise their prices drastically, which I think is a bit much, but it is an incredible way for the hotel to gain revenue in a short amount of time.

Music festivals are in trouble but the shows must go on
The Conversation
Music festivals range from one-day events to even month-long events and the festival economy is like a fresh-food economy.

Derek Rammel's insight:

As awesome as music festivals can be, they are quite expensive. I understand that some people might not want to pay that much, and not go, but it is hurting the business side.  With so many festivals out there, the competition might get tough, and this is causing some festivals to cancel their shows.

Miami's mayor has called for an end to Ultra Music Festival following this weekend's trampling of a security guard. In addition, 76 festival-goers were arrested, 28 of them for felonies, and 118 others were treated by paramedics ...
Derek Rammel's insight:

Some music festivals bring in hundreds of thousands of people, and one of the biggest concerns is the safety of everyone.  Ultra Music Festival is on my bucket list, so I hope that the festival goes on.  I understand that safety is extremely important though, and I know why the mayor is concerned.

Derek Rammel's insight:

I think that it good that they are popping up in every corner of the world because they can be extremely profitable.  I also believe that music festivals are more risky than concerts because they are more of an investment for the consumer.

Coachella fuels major festival upsurge - U-T San Diego

Coachella fuels major festival upsurge - U-T San Diego | Music Festivals | Scoop.it
Coachella fuels major festival upsurge U-T San Diego Multiday annual rock festivals were few and very far between in the United States when the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival was launched in Indio — with a resounding thud and a major...
Derek Rammel's insight:

The fact that Coachella sells tickets in large quantity before the lineup is announced is incredible. Tickets for this festival sold out in under 3 hours this year, which means the business side has more leniency than other festivals.  If all festivals were this way, I believe we would see more festivals than ever before.
