The post-Covid demand for live entertainment in a communal setting has served the festival sector well during the past two years, but ask operators of both boutique and major festivals, and they'll produce an ever-lengthening list of challenges. While distinctions are often made between the big multinational-owned sites, and smaller independent events, in reality, they share more common ground than not. As costs across the board continue to spiral upward, weather extremes become a more frequent threat, and the small matter of a summer Olympic Games in Paris and the UEFA Euro Championship in Germany absorbing many resources, 2024 could well see more shared obstacles than ever. Join IQ editor Gordon Masson and organisers of both major and boutique from across Europe as they discuss shared obstacles faced by the sector as a whole.
