GUEST,Captainswing Why Do Musicians Work For Nothing? (293* d) RE: Why Do Musicians Work For Nothing? 15 May 14

I agree with Lizzie. There are many free festivals in my area and the people who appear to make the money are the owners of the pubs/bars etc and the festival organisers who are often paid by the pub owners to engage the acts.

The policy regarding engaging acts seems to be quantity rather than quality, often exploiting younger performers who will bring all of their friends and will be impressed that they are playing at a 'festival'.
