Festival booking tips from the pro's (PDF)

"Here today, and gone tomorrow"

That’s been the unfortunate fate of many recent music festivals that have come and gone. With artist booking fees rising, production costs increasing, and dozens of other obstacles and hazards, producing a music festival in this day and age is a massive undertaking. It’s no surprise then why many festivals “pop up.” and then are unable to return for a second year.

Choosing artists for your lineup

From a study we did in 2018, we found that on average, 40% of music festival budgets go straight to booking talent (that’s more than twice what the second largest line item was… production costs!). It’s fair to say then, that picking the artists for your lineup will be the single largest expense you’ll need to consider when producing your own festival.

How we can help

To help you on your journey, we interviewed producers from successful music festivals all over the United States and asked them an array of questions. We wanted to find out what their thought process is when choosing talent, and what steps they take to ensure that their investments are safe. Obviously, the information we gathered was a gold mine, and we want to share it with you for free!
