The cultural offer in our country has always been wide and able to adapt to the circumstances. An example of this is the festival industry that despite having suffered a critical hiatus during the first waves of COVID-19, this 2023 is coming back stronger than ever.
After the uncertainty and constant changes of dates that took place during the quarantine, musical events gradually returned to our lives, with restrictions and strong security measures; Masks, reduced seating capacity, safety distances and seated concerts allowed the industry to save the losses from cancellations;
In 2021, some renowned festivals kept their scheduled date, such as las Noches del Botánico, while others like the Barcelona’s Primavera Sound, they postponed it for a few months to ensure a safe realization and everything went relatively normally. However, in other festivals such as Mad Cool, Sónar or FIB Benicàssim, they were postponed for 1 year to offer safe conditions, similar to those of pre-pandemic editions;
In 2022, thanks to the high pent-up demand of the previous year and the effort of promoters to improve the musical offer to recover the last two years, more than 900 festivals were held in Spain, with an estimated economic impact of more than 400 million euros. These are encouraging figures that are likely to be exceeded in 2023.
Despite the uncertainty caused by inflation, it is more than evident that the festival sector in Spain is booming. Far from being affected by the economic crisis, the feeling in the industry is of total recovery and, in fact, more and more musical events are appearing, such as the Primavera Sound edition in Madrid or the Sabåtic Fest in Malaga, among others;
The industry is now focusing on stiff market competition, high production costs and the need to attract an increasingly diverse and demanding audience, which also has to pay higher ticket prices.
These challenges add to the need to hire competent professionals who prioritize event security and promoters with constant and clear communication, both with festival attendees, artists and suppliers to inform all stakeholders in an agile and accurate manner in case of any unforeseen event (adverse weather conditions, new restrictions, etc.).
