Feedback Needed On Your Festivals



WE SUPPORT YOU SO THAT YOU CAN SUPPORT US SO THAT WE CAN SUPPORT YOU

I have attended dozens of DCMS Festival Group meetings during this last 18 months of the Covid Crisis.  There is often lots of talk about rock and pop festivals, especially big ones.  I fly the flag for grass roots festivals, often less than 5000 capacity, and could do with a bit more evidence that you exist.  At a recent DCMS meeting there was lots of talk about the Liverpool Pilot Festival event, Download, Tramlines, Latitude, Standon Calling and one or two others.

I need to be able to talk up the grass roots and for that I need you to tell me how it was.If you ran your festival this year would you drop me a line and tell me whether you were running Covid-safe, half size audience, full capacity, taking a few risks.  Did you achieve any Covid insurance (that would be a miracle)?  How was the weather?  Was it only Covid that was affecting you?  Did you survive?  Will you run again next year?  As much information as you care to give us.  We need to shout on your behalf, and I am more than happy to do that but I do need the ammunition.  I look forward to hearing from you.

PS: Were you hoping to bring over overseas artists who then couldn’t come because of BREXIT or Covid?
