Typeface, placement in the line-up list and overall look are now crucial weapons in the battle for your presence at large scale live events. It's a war of sorts and it's being played out all around us every spring and summer. But really, should everyone just forget it and go alphabetical? Should logos be banned? How many headliners can you really credibly present, and how many big names do you really need to when they up your costs and make recouping harder?

More speakers to be announced!
