Thoughts from the festival grounds

We catch up with some of the hard-working companies and individuals powering this summer’s biggest outdoor events and discuss how this year’s latest trends may affect future events.

The summer of 2023 has been an unusual one  for the live events industry. With festivals back in force, we have also seen more stadium tours than ever before. Although an equal share of TPi’s focus has been taken up by the likes of Coldplay, Harry Styles and Sam Fender to name but a few, we’ve been keeping up with our friends during the busy festival season. As such we were keen to bring some of the news from this summer and highlight some notable trends that we’re looking forward to seeing more of in the future.
