Banter: The Ins And Outs Of Running An Irish FestivalJust as everyone thinks they can write a book, everyone also thinks they can run a festival. Yeah, you know ’em, the ones who went to Sonar or Glastonbury or Life and reckoned they could do it themselves. But as the adage goes, the easiest way to make a million yoyos in the live music business is to start out with 10 million. Too many chancers, too many fly-by-night boyos and too many numpties have come, had a go and left unpaid bills behind.

Meet Cillian Stewart from Castle Palooza and Paul Brown from the Earagail Arts Festival, two people who know the pressures, strains, stresses and occasional triumphs of putting on events in Ireland. They talk turkey about what’s involved in their events, the hassles they face, the financial problems they have to solve and the reason why they do it. Come along, ask some questions and perhaps steal a few ideas for your own festival.
