FESTIVALS AND MORE… Five years ago we launched the first edition of the EB Festival Guide at the Eurosonic Noorderslag Festival. For obvious reasons. This event is guest to more than 300 festival organizers throughout Europe. So we continue this tradition; the fifth edition will be released at Eurosonic Noorderslag 2014. A new item is the launch of the website www.mijnfestivalgids.nl. To be complete with the list of festivals in the EB Festival Guide is one thing. The new goal we were set out to achieve this year, was to get all festivals online in a consumer oriented website. Because we believe that we can be of additional service to all professionals, active within the live music industry, if we are able to present all available festival information to the festival lovers in an online environment. So this year we succeeded in realizing www.mijnfestivalgids.nl as an online extension of the traditional EB Festival Guide. A portal that serves music fans with all the relevant festival information. The new website offers festival goers and music fans update information of all relevant music festivals in the Benelux and the most important festivals throughout Europe. The site will not only service the music fans, but also the festival promoters and organizations. The site will publish all relevant press statement and news on the festivals in the database. Are there festivals missing? Promoters or organizations will be able to upload new festivals or change data when necessary. But also video’s, press statements, additions to the line up or photos can be uploaded to the specific festival page. All free of charge for the promoter or festival organization. The EB Festival Guide is the only Benelux business-to-business publication on live music festivals in Europe. This year’s edition is again more complete than the previous one, with more than 450 enlisted festivals in the Benelux and Europe. It’s the most complete festival guide containing the most relevant information you, as a music professional, would like to know: date, location, capacity, organiztion, promoters, agents, ticketers, history, website etc. We did put a lot of effort in the production of this year’s edition. We also try to be as complete as possible. But we also need your help. If it appears that we might have overlooked your festival or missed out on important information, please let us know. You can contact us at: festivalguide@entertainmentbusiness.nl. Next to that: check the new website www.mijnfestivalgids.nl and let us know what you think. Tips, comments, complaints, anything. Let us know. And… check if your festival is mentioned on our new site and if the information is up to par. Hope to hear from you and see you at one of the great festivals this year.

It quickly expanded and the event has been held in locations like the Statenhal The Hague, the SilverDome Zoetermeer, the Jaarbeurs Utrecht and the Brabanthallen Den Bosch. Nowadays Hard Bass is held once a year in a completely sold out GelreDome in Arnhem.

PACHA FESTIVAL

HOUSE / TECHHOUSE / TECHNO

In the summer of 2012, PACHA and Art of Entertainment joined forces for the first time and produced the very first edition of PACHA FESTIVAL. At a stunning location in the heart of the Dutch capital Amsterdam, the Java Island, a dedicated festival site was created with 4 areas of PACHA madness. With nothing but headliners on the main stage and bringing three concepts straight from the nightclub in Ibiza, a little bit of the sunny Island was brought to Amsterdam. The result was an amazing kick-off with a thrilling crowd. The standard was set for the years to come.

Both their careers started in Eindhoven, in ‘de DansSalon’ and ‘MDC Hollywood’. The two giants (although Marco V is not really that big) return for one day in Eindhoven for an outdoor experience. In 2013 they did an 5 hour performance, with a unique back2back session for the last two hours. Reactions from the crowd were overwhelming, so the return in 2014 was already decided at the first edition. Highlights earlier Marco V & Marcel Woods

There were three conditions when planning this event: a quality techno line-up, the best sound system and only one stage to put the focus fully on the artists and the music. It had to be an event where techno lovers could explore and discover great music at one of the most beautiful outdoor festival locations in Amsterdam. 909 is held in the Amsterdam Forest next to a quiet lake, surrounded by beautiful trees.

PUSSY LOUNGE AT THE PARK HARDER STYLES

Pussy lounge is one of the longest running concepts of b2s. The soft erotic styled event was organized for the first time in 1997. The events, which always sell out, are packed with madness, happiness and good music, where the DJ plays what the audience wants. The freestyle music is a mix of the popular harder styles in dance music. In 2011 b2s decided to organize an outdoor edition of Pussy Lounge, called Pussy Lounge at the Park. It took place for the first time at the Asterdplas in Breda and sold out in record time.

The Oerol festival uses the entire island of Terschelling as a stage for its performers. It features everything from theatre to comedy, to music on stages ranging from the beach to bunkers, from barns to bars. It might just be one of the most popular all-round festivals in The Netherlands. FESTIVAL INFORMATION

Advertorial

‘De relatie met de bezoeker verstevigen is alles’ De ticketingmarkt en de evenementenmarkt mogen dan aan verandering onderhevig zijn, één ding zal altijd voorop blijven staan: de relatie die jij als evenementhouder weet op te bouwen met je bezoeker. Als je goed weet wie je bezoeker is en hoe hij/zij zich gedraagt, kun je elke dag (met behulp van de juiste technologie) je ticketingstrategie en de beleving van je evenement verbeteren. Het verbeteren van een ticketingstrategie kan via Paylogic op vele manieren; via het optimaliseren van mobile ticketing, of via RFID-oplossingen om nog meer uit je evenement en je bezoeker te halen. Centraal staat echter het leren kennen van je bezoeker, dit kan bijvoorbeeld door middel van Conversion Tracking. Conversion tracking (het identificeren van je ticketshop-bezoekers waarmee je online gedrag in kaart brengt) bestaat uiteraard al geruime tijd maar was niet eerder mogelijk bij white label-technologie uit veiligheidsoverwegingen. Paylogic heeft onder andere voor Concert at Sea een innovatieve en werkbare oplossing bedacht en maakt daarmee nu inzichtelijk hoe bezoekers op de website terechtkomen, welke online advertenties succesvol zijn, welke onderdelen van de site het populairst zijn, wanneer consumenten de ticketshop in gaan om een ticket te kopen, maar ook wanneer en op welke pagina ze uiteindelijk besluiten dit toch niet te doen (waarvoor remarketing kan worden ingezet om hen alsnog te overtuigen). Al deze data is heel belangrijk voor je ticketing- en marketingstrategie, die je zo kunt aanpassen op het gedrag van je bezoeker. Zeker als je hierbij bijvoorbeeld ambassadeurs (loyale bezoekers die al vaker geweest zijn) in wilt zetten en ook hun succes meten. HET JUISTE TICKET VOOR DE JUISTE BEZOEKER VIA HET JUISTE KANAAL (OF PERSOON) Voor Concert At See zijn kaartjes voor één festival-dag beschikbaar, maar fans kunnen ook weekend-tickets (desgewenst inclusief overnachtingsarrangement) aanschaffen. Je kunt parkeertickets kopen, maar bijvoorbeeld ook een rolstoelpodiumticket. Dit alles moet overzichtelijk gebeuren, en liefst zo dat er voordelen voor bezoekers ontstaan wanneer ze meerdere tickets tegelijk aanschaffen. “Zeker de bezoekers die meerdere tickets kopen, of bezoekers die al meerdere jaren loyaal zijn aan je evenement moet je koesteren”, aldus Jan Willem van der Meer, commercieel directeur van Paylogic. “Ik ben er trots op dat Agents After All iedereen die de afgelopen drie jaar naar Concert At Sea is geweest een e-mail heeft gestuurd met een aanbod waardoor zij voorrang krijgen op de reguliere ticketverkoop. Dat is precies waar het om draait: de relatie met je bezoeker verstevigen is alles.”

A CAMPINGFLIGHT TO LOWLANDS PARADISE ART / COMEDY / THEATRE

OHM FESTIVAL HOUSE / TECHNO

edition 21

A Campingflight To Lowlands Paradise is exactly what it promises to be: a true backpacker’s Garden Of Eden and Holland’s most adventurous cultural outdoor event. For three days in August, a township with 55,000 inhabitants arises in the middle of the country. About 250 different acts and performances, dozens of restaurants from all corners of the earth, food and drink stalls, a large market with everything from clothes and CD stores to a tattoo shop, relax rooms with brain massages, a local radio station, a daily newspaper and, last but not least: seven luxury campsites with hot showers.

Ohm Festival is originated from the need to fill the emptiness in the Zuid-Holland/Randstad festival scene. Although festival culture is thriving in the Netherlands this region seemed to be missing all the action while having a lot of party-loving people living in the region. A small festival hosting at Soenda festival soon led to a last minute collaboration between Soenda and ZeeZout resulting in the very first Ohm Festival. The combination of quality house and techno music, an amazing location, lots of activities and a great crowd surely make Ohm Festival one of the standout new festivals.

He is considered to be one of the most important musical icons of the 20th century.” (Waso De Cauter) Brosella organises for the 20th time this unique birthday party to honour the birth of Django Reinhardt.

Flanders Festival Kortrijk is the music festival of southern West Flanders. An attractive project with a programme that transcends the boundaries of many genres, from classical to contemporary, from world music to sound art.

Aside from the many concerts, there is “Stadsmuziek” (City Music), a musical voyage with surprising concerts in intimate settings and last but not least there is “Klinkende Stad” (Sounding City), where the festival presents the first Belgian soloexhibition by sound art pioneer Bernhard Leitner.

edition 38

FOLK / JAZZ

/ HARDER STYLES / INDUSTRIAL

Par-T secretly created a brand new festival in 2010, where true lovers of the harder styles come together to collect the treasures that lie beyond the borders of this dying world and inside the next. Four years ago the Last World Festival started with five stages and has already expanded to eight stages with strictly harder styles, in particular hardstyle, jump and hardcore. There are more than 75 international performances, with only one mission: make Last World Festival the final destination of the harder styles and rule this last world.

The International BROSELLA Folk & Jazz Festival takes place at the Groentheater or Théâtre de Verdure at the Ossegem park (near the ATOMIUM) in Brussels (Laken). The festival, initiated in 1977 by the City of Brussels, always takes place during the second weekend of July. So, on the 12th and 13th July 2014, the 38th edition will once more be a unique experience. Unique, because the festival is still almost free. Every year you have the opportunity to witness surprises: discover new bands next to well-known artists often with exclusive programmes, especially created for BROSELLA.

URBAN / WORLD

INDIE / REGGAE

Dour is a festival where everybody feels close to each other and every gig is really an excuse to party. We all go to Dour to party together and listen to exciting music. Dour Festival offers a unique, international, alternative, independent and ambitious line-up filled with varied and multicultural artists. This success shows us that it is possible to create a different kind of event that’s respectiful of the audience without being expensive. In the words of festival-goer Ben: “Dour is to music what the bikini was to fashion: avantgarde, experimental and insolent.”

Sfinks is a yearly summer festival which offers obstinate and adventurous music and a festive, separate program. The festival is for young and old, families with children and adventurous music lovers. It offers beautiful music, exquisite food and drinks. Sfinks features a programme with culturally identifiable music. For us, music is a universal language building bridges between cultures and offering a better understanding of the complex richness of the world we live in.

LAUS POLYPHONIAE

BEAVERFEST edition 21

CLASSIC

edition 3

ALTERNATIVE / INDIE / PROGRESSIVE / ROCK / SINGERSONGWRITER

Laus Polyphoniae is the summer edition of AMUZ (Flanders Festival-Antwerp). Since 1994 this early music and polyphony festival takes place in the last weeks of August. Every edition has its central theme or composer. An ensemble in residence presents several concerts regarding the annual theme. In 2014 the festival highlights the early career of Claudio Monteverdi. Highlights earlier Hespèrion XXI, Huelgas Ensemble, Stile Antico, Emma Kirkby

Where mega-happenings are erecting festivalsites the size of villages, BEAVERFEST is aiming for quite the opposite: keeping things small and intimate. Creating a nice and relaxed atmosphere (for both bands and audience) is one of the main goals of the organization. If you enjoy exiting bands, never losing your friends, making new ones, delicious food and all the little things in life, we think you may want to be part of the BEAVERFEST community. BEAVERFEST is located in the Belgian Woods in the beautiful valley of music-lodge La Truite d’Argent.

FEEËRIEËN

BOTERHAMMEN IN HET PARK edition 25

CULTURE / FOLK / MUSIC

The fairly unique festival formula remains just as fresh as from the oven: free of charge, an up-to-date selection of Dutch-speaking and/or Flemish musicians, the last week of the summer holidays, from Monday 25 to Friday 29 August, on that attractive bandstand in the Warande Park in the middle of upper-Brussels, close to Central Station and metro station Park, organised by Ancienne Belgique, with the support of the Flemish Community and forever a people-friendly invention of Jari Demeulemeester, the A.D. of the A.B.

edition 11

AMBIENT

We couldn’t capture the spirit of the Feeërieën better than De Standaard once worded it: “Once a year the Warande Park in Brussels transforms into a fairy-tale forest where weird and wonderful music resounds. Between trees strewn with colourful lights. The musicians who play here - for a quietas-a-mouse, usually seated, audience - are masters of melancholy. All this takes place under a thick leafy ceiling, on a bandstand that bathes in misty blue lights. A fata morgana such as you have never seen.”

edition 6 In 2013 Selector Festival took a great turn with a new formula: Best Contemporary Electronic and Alternative Music, and a new venue in Warsaw. Headlined by the legendary Swedish electronic duo at their only performance in this part of Europe – The Knife – and the rebellious songstress M.I.A., it stood for its formula with James Blake, Jessie Ware and Archive. We also celebrated 10 years of Ed Banger with Busy P and Breakbot (live), not forgetting Para One, When Saints Go Machine or Capital Cities. Nominated for European Festival Awards as Best Medium Festival.

Besides the fact that Berlin Festival is one of the coolest independent and electronic music festivals in Germany, it is probably the only roofed open air festival in the world. Situated in the middle of Berlin at the historic airport Zentralflughafen Tempelhof, one of the biggest buildings in the world, the festival became more than just an musical event. Bridging indie and electro, old an new, hip and underground, fashion and art, this festival represents the new ‘Spirit of Berlin’.

Every year we enjoy Defqon.1 Festival so much that the day goes by way too fast. Luckily, we found a solution for this. If you don’t want it to end... extend! Because Defqon.1 moved to Biddinghuizen in 2011, the possibility of making it a two-day festival arose. First we experimented with Defqon.1 Extended, including two nights on the campsite and a preparty, festival day and an after party. Not one, but two full days of Defqon.1 Madness conquered the grounds of Biddinghuizen!

Advertorial

Crowd Support ondersteunt en ontzorgt Crowd Support is gespecialiseerd in evenementenbeveiliging en crowd management services. “Onze missie is het ondersteunen en het ‘ontzorgen’ van organisatoren om bezoekers een veilig en prettig evenement te laten beleven”, vertelt Mari van Dorst, directeur van Crowd Support. “Dankzij de jarenlange ervaring van onze staf en medewerkers kunnen wij een organisator nagenoeg alles uit handen nemen.”

V

an Dorst: “Veiligheid is ons primaire doel, maar daarnaast staat bij ons ook hospitality zeer hoog in het vaandel. Of het nu gaat om de toegangscontrole of het wegwijzen van een bezoeker, een vriendelijke en behulpzame medewerker draagt bij aan de positieve ervaring van de bezoeker. Vanzelfsprekend zorgen wij ervoor dat medewerkers ook op dit punt worden opgeleid. Men denkt vaak dat je er al bent door simpelweg wat mensen neer te zetten, maar er komt natuurlijk veel meer bij kijken. Onze focus ligt uitsluitend op evenementen. Wij doen niets anders en zijn dan ook gerust dé specialist van Nederland te noemen.”

Crowd Support is onderdeel van de Traffic & Travel Group. Naast Crowd Support maken ook Traffic Support, OnlineTicket.nl en Event Travel hier deel van uit. Crowd Support heeft kantoren in Zwolle en Amsterdam.

VEILIGHEID De veiligheidsvraagstukken van een evenement zijn in goede handen bij Crowd Support, variërend van de voorbereidingen, het daadwerkelijk inzetten van personeel tot aan de evaluatie. “We kunnen desgewenst de volledige veiligheidszorg van een evenement overnemen, maar uiteraard is het ook mogelijk om onderdelen hiervan over te dragen”, aldus Van Dorst. Verder helpt Crowd Support organisatoren bij het in kaart brengen van risico’s en de mogelijke incidentscenario’s die daarmee samengaan. “Onze

ervaren specialisten adviseren over de maatregelen die nodig zijn om de kans dat een incidentscenario zich voordoet te verkleinen, maar ook hoe de impact beperkt kan worden wanneer het scenario onverhoopt aan de orde komt. In samenwerking met onze zusterorganisatie Traffic Support kunnen we voorzien in totaaloplossingen voor verkeer én veiligheid. Opdrachtgevers worden uiteraard niet verplicht om van beide organisaties gebruik te maken. Wij laten ze daar volledig vrij in, maar het biedt wel mogelijkheden die veel voordelen kunnen opleveren.” OPLEIDINGEN De opleidingen van Crowd Support worden verzorgd door Instituut Veiligheidsopleidingen Nederland (IVON). Naast de medewerkers van Crowd Support en Traffic Support, kunnen ook medewerkers van organisatoren en andere bij evenementen betrokken professionals een opleiding volgen bij IVON. Door de juiste combinatie van theorie en praktijk kan IVON verscheidende opleidingen aanbieden of ontwikkelen. MARKTSEGMENTEN Crowd Support is gespecialiseerd in vier marktsegmenten: corporate, media, sport en muziekevenementen. “We verzorgen de beveiliging en crowd management services voor veel grootschalige evenementen”, vertelt Van Dorst, “maar minstens zoveel kleinschalige (bedrijfs)evenementen. Ons oog voor detail in combinatie met onze bedrijfsvoering maakt dat beide mogelijk is.” MUZIEK Crowd Support is een vooraanstaande dienstverlener van evenementenbeveiliging en crowd management services bij tal van feesten, concerten, festivals en dance-evenementen. De opgedane kennis en ervaring wordt ook voor specifieke toepassingen gebruikt, zoals de beveiliging en het crowd management bij toegangen, afgeschermde gebieden en (bus- en trein) stations die tijdens evenementen in gebruik zijn. SPORT Crowd Support verleent diensten bij grote en kleine wedstrijden en toernooien, maar altijd met de deelnem-

330-351 Notes.indd 349

ers, bezoekers en betrokkenen in gedachten. Hierbij is het verbeteren van de ervaring en veiligheid het doel. CORPORATE Of het nu gaat om een beurs, gala-avond, productlancering of besloten bijeenkomst, Crowd Support kan deze als geen ander voorzien van de juiste beveiliging. Medewerkers zijn op een onderscheidende manier opgeleid in hostmanship en zijn representatieve gastheren en -vrouwen voor de bezoekers. MEDIA Crowd Support werkt voor verschillende marktleiders in de mediawereld. Beveiliging staat bij Crowd Support niet op zichzelf. Evenementen worden voorzien van uiterst representatieve en pro-actieve medewerkerss. Of het nu gaat om een studio-opname of een liveopname, Crowd Support levert de juiste medewerker.
