THE FESTIVAL EXPERIENCE – THE GOOD, BAD and the UGLY! READER SURVEY RESULTS

Where would we be without festivals? Hopefully, this is something we will never be faced with. But sadly, some festivals, after years and years of struggling, are calling it quits.
There are new festivals being born each year, but I'm afraid the number of festivals that are closing is the more rapidly growing percentage. It's going to take a little from all of us to ensure the festival experience continues for years to come if you want to be able to take your kids or grand kids to one of these events, instead of just one day telling them how much fun a festival was.
We must all work together to keep these festivals going. Whether you are the festival promoter, band member, volunteer or audience member, your help is needed! One way you can help is by voicing your opinion on what ways we can improve the festival experience.
