The Covid-19 pandemic caused the whole festival scene to almost disappear. Meanwhile, many new opportunities are created for festival organisers. All speakers have a different view and approach. The conversation will be started with big speakers who all play a different role within the festival branch.
First off, Jane Slingo, an electronic music professional with 25+ years' experience and the director of Australia’s Electric Music Conference, will give us an insight in the changing and challenging event industry. In addition, Burning Man Project’s Executive event Producer, Justin Katz, will talk about the online multiverse Burning Man organized last summer. Moreover, Allan Hardenberg, ALDA’s Founder and Director, but also concept developer and global producer will join the panel to talk about his experiences in events last summer. The panel will include issues like the organization of this year’s events, livestreams and the impact, and their differing visions on the future of the event industry.
This panel is co-curated by our educational partner Fontys ACI
