Every year, twice a year, Stuart Macnaught and Laurie Kirby bring festival industry top hats together in Santa Bárbara, California and New York, New York. Fest forums is the hub for the network of festival producers worldwide. The conference is comprised of close to a thousand attendees and activations by the top of the line technology sponsors.
This year, at Santa Barbara Fess Parker Resort, Fest Forums hosted guest like T-Bone, Jeff Bridges, and Kenny Loggins to reward for their legendary impact. The conference was kindly curated with panels on safety, talent management, and cannabis at festivals. FestForums promotes a progressive culture in the event production industry with access to tools. In just three days you can experience the conversations by moderators and speakers such as CR Capers (New York Hip Hop Festival), David Beame (Global Citizens), Kevin Lyman (Vans Warped Tour).
