GUEST,Banjiman The Fringe at festivals (51* d) RE: The Fringe at festivals 28 Aug 12


Depends on your perspective ...... and the aims of the festival really.

The Festival we're planning next year is looking to put sessions in the pubs, performances in local cafes, galleries (and even the barbers)in exchange for a little sponsorship from these businesses (to help festival running costs). These will obviously be free to participants and audience.

There will also be a session and Ceilidh marquee (with bar) located on the campsite (available to w/e ticket holders only).

Formal ticketed concerts will be held in a couple of venues in the town.

Ticket types available will be for

1/ Full festival - weekend tickets £40 - £50 (including concerts)+ £2.50 per night camping
2/ Sessions/ ceilidhs and camping - weekend tickets (3 nights) - £22 - £28
3/ Individual concert tickets


Interested in feedback as to the perception of this model. I guess we're trying to create a fringe but very much as part of the festival........ and get some revenue from this to make the festival viable.
