Continuing our theme of music festivals, we examine festival culture and why some touring festivals such as Warped Tour and Knotfest have been mega-successful, why some get to make a comeback such as Mayhem Festival will in 2020, and Metallica’s Orion Festival missed the mark. Dumb and Dumbest #279 is streaming now and it’s about Why Festivals Fail! Dumb and Dumbest is hosted by Matt Bacon (Dropout Media, Ripple Music, Prophecy Productions) and Publicist Curtis Dewar (Dewar PR), in addition to the podcast, Matt and Curtis host The Music Marketing Challenge, a low-cost, super high-value private training to bands and artists.
