What event promoters can learn from Glastonbury 2023
This weekend, 200,000 people flocked to Worthy Farm for perhaps the biggest festival in the calendar: Glastonbury.
The coverage was inescapable, with lots of sets broadcast for us less fortunate music enthusiasts who didn’t manage to bag a ticket this year.
As we took in the breadth and depth of music on offer through our TV screens this weekend, it got us thinking: what could event organisers learn from Glastonbury?
Now, Glastonbury is massive.
A lot of the things on offer at the festival are possible due to the size, but festival promoters across the country can take inspiration.
With that in mind, we’ve rounded up a few points of inspiration in our latest article.

Engaging and retaining your most loyal attendees
Established festival promoters might find engagement pretty straightforward. The festival has a good reputation, they can secure big-name acts and they’ve settled into a groove when it comes to running the festival.
But all promoters can benefit from retention.
When you retain fans, you open the door to many benefits. A loyal fan of your festival can help you create a core fanbase and promote your festival via word of mouth.
That can help you boost ticket sales. If you’re expanding the festival or bringing something new in, those core fans will follow you through thick and thin.
We recently put together an article showing you how to engage and retain your most loyal attendees. Click here to read.
