Invigoration at XLIVE

XLIVE was one for the books! We certainly walked away feeling invigorated and inspired!

This convergence of festival creators includes those from all realms of live entertainment: music, art, food & beverage, esports, and more! The selection of panelists and speakers served each of these niches, and the face to face connections on the expo floor and during evening events was superlative!

Capturing the Magic at FestForums

FestForums Santa Barbara – November 19th-21st 2016

We had the pleasure of attending FestForums in Santa Barbara. While we loved witnessing the connections made between festival producers, what we really enjoyed was capturing this magic!

FestForums was born out of a desire to forge alliances between festival producers in food, beverage, music and film. This is the key stop for all event producers and entertainment industry leaders.

Three full days of panel discussions ranging from emerging trends and technology to booking talent, to security and safety. Some of our personal highlights include Michael Lang’s keynote (co-creator of Woodstock), The Lucidity Festivals “I AM HEALING” zone, The cine-transformer (a mobile movie theater!), the Fiesta Lagunitas with an awesome music lineup, and getting to hear from Quentin Tarantino & Jack Johnson at the Best of Fest Award Ceremony.
