Skiddle’s Rooftop Rum Shaker event
The Great Escape is upon us. No, we’re not talking about Steve McQueen on a motorbike, or West Brom’s miraculous escape from the drop zone of the Premier League in 2005. We’re talking about Brighton’s three-day annual music festival, where the hottest up-and-coming acts play in numerous live music spaces across the city.
Thinking of attending? Why not join us at our Rooftop Rum Shaker event on 11th May at Ollie’s Jerk Shack from 16:00-18:00. Here, event organising professionals can chat, catch up on the latest happenings in the industry and share ideas over complimentary food and drink. It’s our way of giving back to the promoters who work tirelessly to deliver memorable experiences. We know how crucial it is to have a support network and we want to do our bit to make sure you’ve got just that.

How to ensure your festival is safe and inclusive
Music festivals can be life-changing. In those fields, people discover new passions, make everlasting memories and have a lot of fun. And while said fun is being had, your guests need to know that they are in safe hands. That’s why it’s especially important to ensure your festival is secure and inclusive to all who attend this year and beyond.
That means going above and beyond to make sure disabled and neurodivergent people can enjoy their time across the weekend too, and that certain processes are put into practice to protect women and people from the LGBTQIA+ community.

Four things to consider when launching a new attraction at your festival
As festivals have grown in scope, so have the attractions on offer.
The larger festivals, where fields are transformed into mini-cities, come with purpose-built nightclubs. At smaller festivals, the location and surroundings become part of the vibe. It’s as much of a driving force to purchase tickets as the lineup is.
This approach can help you stand out in a competitive industry. Whether it’s catering to a specialist audience by installing skateparks or hosting yoga and meditation sessions for wellness enthusiasts, it’s a chance to offer something different from the usual.
If you keep at it and book attractions that prove to be popular, your festival might gain a name for breaking the mould. A reputation like that will give your brand a competitive edge over others.

Bank Holiday Reminder
The bank holidays have been stacking up lately, haven’t they?
If you’ve got an event coming up next week, here’s our quick reminder to tighten up your listings and ensure you squeeze all the juice from them.
That means including relevant keywords in your event description, making sure all your images are high quality, and that any images give a clear idea as to what your event is about.
Be sure to push the event all over social media, too. Ticket sales often spike at the last minute, and optimizing listings and spreading the word can make all the difference.
