Expanded Newport Jazz Festival spotlights emerging talents - The Boston Globe

Expanded Newport Jazz Festival spotlights emerging talents - The Boston Globe | Music Festivals Exanding | Scoop.it
Newport Jazz Festival celebrates its 60th anniversary this year. To mark the event, the festival has expanded its usual weekend to three full days, including a Friday program that will focus entirely on what’s loosely termed “emerging artists.”
Jaime Soriano's insight:

I really liked that this particular festival is adding an extra day dedicated purely to "emerging talent". I think this is a problem with major festivals now, only a small number of acts get in the rosters and repeat the festivals every couple of years.

Jaime Soriano's insight:

I thought that the pros and cons in this article about expanding festivals to two weekends were spot on. I agreed with pretty much everything the author wrote. It was also interesting to find out that there were festivals doing this for decades.

Jay Z's Made in America Expands to Los Angeles, Becomes Bicoastal Music Fest - Hollywood Reporter | Music Festivals Exanding | Scoop.it
The Budweiser Made in America festival is expanding to Los Angeles — and staying in its birthplace of Philadelphia, with two simultaneous two-day festivals...
Jaime Soriano's insight:

When I heard about this news I thought it would be a great idea. I liked that people from either city or coast would have the opportunity to attend to this growing festival, but after reading into it I realized the two editions would have completely different lineups, which discouraged me a bit. I think both editions have a solid lineup, tho.

Del.'s Firefly music fest expands to 4 days, more acts

Del.'s Firefly music fest expands to 4 days, more acts | Music Festivals Exanding | Scoop.it
DOVER, Del. — Firefly Music Festival will celebrate its third year by expanding to four days and five nights, a move that organizers hope will alleviate the massive hours-long traffic jam that swallowed both festival-goers and commuters this past June.
Jaime Soriano's insight:

I really enjoy attending to concerts and festivals but I think that sometimes it could be too tiring to go for 4 days and 5 nights. I like a busy festival but maybe this could be too much.
