There are only a handful of festival producers and promoters in the world with this degree of  understanding of the myriad of details required to present a quality music festival.

“There are at least 40 cost centers on a concert, at least 75 in major music festival, and you have to be proficient at all of them. That skill set takes decades, continuing your learning every day. This entertainment planet is changing every year…making daily market adjustments for the new-world ticket buyer is now essential for survival and success. There is always more.” Hal said.

After 35 years of promoting, Hal Davidson feels that only large format music festivals can provide the level of security that principals and stakeholders demand. These events cost between $600,000.- multi-millions. The top 10 music festival in America spend millions on talent alone. Hal said, “Only major festivals afford the stakeholders enough revenue streams and drawing power to minimize the risk…a festival project’s major components are about transparent honesty, relationships, organization, operational capacity, communication, venue, artist level and funding.”
