Festivals, whether indoors, outdoors or a mix of both continue to be a growth industry and something we here at Musos’ Guide aim to bring you wide ranging coverage of both in the UK and further afield.
So far in 2015 we’ve tweeted and reported back from Live At Leeds, Cosmic Trip in Bourges & Primavera in Barcelona and in the coming weeks and months expect to be doing the same from Edinburgh’s Franklin Fest, Hamburg’s Reeperbahn Festival, Liverpool’s Psychfest & Utrecht’s Le Guess Who? to name just a few.
The USA is no doubt a world leader in the development & expansion of the festival as an interaction between fans & the bands they love. Whilst our size has so far limited us to one in-person series of pieces on the 2014 South By So What? festival in Texas the embedded infographic in the Media section at the foot of this page gives you an idea of the scale of things on the other side of the Atlantic and may possibly inspire you to hit the road to catch more than one European event over this Summer.
Many thanks to Max Reich at Rukkus for taking the time to send us the image.
