What makes a music festival? The case of Festival no.6, 2014

I recently wrote an article which you can now access over on Live Music Exchange. It considers the unique ingredients of the Festival No. 6 event in Wales last year, and why it was such a success.

Specifically, I review 'content' and 'context', which are often discussed in relation to music subscription services. If they all have pretty much the same music, then which one do you use? It's all about the context.

Does the same go for music festivals? Check out the article and share your thoughts.

Much has been said about live music on musicpiracyblog, dating back as far as this December 2012 article, charting the links between music piracy and live concert attendance. It's important to keep the bigger picture in mind when reviewing the so-called 'music industry', and you can expect more entries on this blog on live music in the coming months when I take care of some live events.
