GUEST,padgett Organisers. Why do we do it? (61* d) RE: Organisers. Why do we do it? 19 Sep 16

If I haven't said it before I do think huge thanks are due to all organisers of all folk events, dance song spoken word etc and this includes festivals and folk/concerty clubs

This is of course down to goodwill and has been proved that festivals in specific areas near/on towns and city sites brings huge tourism spend through the multiplier effect

The organisers of course need enough money to cover all overhead expenses (naturally arising costs of hire and other unavoidable expenses) as well as pa hire/ professional guests etc

The style of festival is of course bound by the provision of interest groups and as I have said elsewhere specific dance instrumental singaround and other attractions such as childrens entertainers and paid or not facilitators

Folk festivals are becoming more narrow in their provision of all encompassing attraction ~ this is of course their right ~ as it is for audience members to be more selective as to which festival best suits them
