A 10 yr report into impartial festivals within the UK has crunched the numbers on how a lot they’re contributing to the native economic system and it’s not a small quantity.
The report by the Association Of Independent Festivals (AIF) discovered that from 2015-2017 they pushed a whopping £1 billion via the lifeblood of the UK, with the 800 000+ punters attending stated festivals spending a mean of £483.14 on prime of each ticket they purchase.

Following on from that, the findings have been such that the companies surrounding the competition web site have been getting about 10 per cent of the spend, which means native companies not affiliated with the festivals appeared to be seeing an honest piece of the competition spend pie.
These statistics are enormous, seeming to point out that an injection within the music competition trade ought to result in apparent rewards for native communities, but right here we’re in Australia have our competition trade being unfairly focused by the federal government.
