The economics and evaluation of festivals and events.

CARLSEN, J.
In I. Yeoman, M. Robertson, J. Ali-Knight, S. Drummond, and U, McMahon-Beattie (Eds.), Festivals and Events Management. 246-259
The economic importance of festivals and events ins now widely recognized. Events have an impact on local, state and national economies through investment, employment and income. They also generate increased tourism and media coverage which leads to increased visitation and awareness of the host destination. This chapter will explain the relevant economic principles that apply to events and the economic and evaluation techniques that are used to determine the value of events. Mega events have major impacts on particular sectors within the economy, including trade, transport and tourism. These sectoral impacts, when combined, can influence the total value of economic activity in a given period as measured using the GDP or GSP. It is important to recognize that it is not just the initial expenditure in the sectors that increases economic activity, but also the subsequent flow-on, or multiplier effects that follow an initial injection of new money in the economy. The size of the multiplier effects will be determined by the extent to which the economy can retain the additional event-related expenditure in the local economy and prevent it from following out on imported goods or services.

The management of rock festivals as a basis for business dynamics: an example of the growing experience economy.

SUNDBO, J.
International Journal of Entrepreneurship and Innovation Management. 4(6) 587-612
4(6) 587-612
This paper investigates whether rock festival organizations can be drivers of local and/or regional business development. Rock festivals are one representation of the seemingly growing experience economy. The paper discusses the following research questions on the basis of an explorative case study: can rock festivals be the basis for the development of other industries, education, research and other activities in the local community or region and, if so, how? Is there a particular management and organizational style related to rock festivals and, if so, is it imitated by other firms so that they can become more creative? The rock festivals' role as innovators and business incubators has been investigated. One rock festival functions as a business incubator, the other one as the basis for an attempt to create a regional innovation system. It is concluded that they can be a basis for local or regional business development. Even though there is a general interest for the management and organizational style of the rock festivals, it seems that it is not directly imitated by other firms.

Festivals, Spatiality and the New Europe

Hansen, K.
Ethnologia Europea, Museum Tusculanums forlag, Copenhagen
Vol 32:2 (s. 19-36)

The principal purpose of this article is to pay attention to events that emphasize and give profile to local, everyday life. It also focuses on "the multiplicity of Europe" and the politics of distinction through local markets, national commemoration days and open-air museums. Cultural heritage is presented as an ongoing process of production and re-production of meaning in these events. The article raises questions about how we can conduct fieldwork on matters as elusive as "the presence of Europe", and the sensory experiences of taking part in ceremonial activities.

En Vinstaffär – Rapport om upplevelseindustrins effekter på en kommun. Hultsfred

Nielsén, T.,
Rock City
Möteplatsen Upplevelsesindustrin Hultsfred, Hultsfred

DEN HÄR RAPPORTEN ANALYSERAR upplevelseindustrins effekter på en kommun. Fallet som diskuteras är Hultsfred i Kalmar län, Småland. Utifrån  två  undersökningar  från  2003  ringas  vissa  värden  in.  Den ena  undersökningen  tar  sin  utgångspunkt  i  ett  enskilt  arrangemang, Sveriges största rockfestival Hultsfredsfestivalen. Utifrån 450 intervjuer studeras  ekonomiska  inflöden  utifrån  detta  årligen  återkommande evenemang.  Den  andra  undersökningen  utreder  de  mer  långsiktiga effekterna  på  Hultsfreds  kommun  och  dess  invånare  utav  Rockcity –  ett  samlingsnamn  som  täcker  småföretag,  kulturarrangemang, 

utbildningar, forskning, restauranger med mera. Tre  inflöden  av  pengar  lyfts  fram  i  denna  rapport  utifrån  dessa undersökningar:

Hultsfredsfestivalens  40 000  besökare  ger  upphov  till  drygt 60  miljoner  kronor  i  konsumtion  som  kan  härledas  direkt  till Hultsfreds kommun. Drivmedel och kostnader för transport har till exempel exkluderats.

Rock City  lockar  till  sig  invånare  och  bidrar  till  en attraktionsplattform  för  befintliga.  Inflyttningen  av  de  nya invånarna medför ett positivt bidrag på 5,2 miljoner kronor per år till Hultsfreds kommun.

Rock City har dessutom erhållit finansiering för att investera i sin verksamhet, utöver den från kommunen, på 41,5 miljoner kronor. Totalt  innebär  detta  ett  inflöde  på  drygt  65  miljoner  kronor per år utöver engångssatsningar hittills på 41,5 miljoner kronor. Dessa siffror motsvarar  inte  vad  Hultsfreds  kommun  exakt  tjänar  på  Rock City och Hultsfredsfestivalen. Siffran reflekterar likväl det flöde av pengar som kommer till kommunen tack vare att dessa verksamheter finns i Hultsfred. Dessutom finns en rad fler verksamheter som inte inkluderas i  undersökningarna,  till  exempel  räknas  inte  omsättningen  och resultatet från Rock Citys olika verksamheter med.Resultaten analyseras sedan i denna rapport i solsystemsmodellen, som utgår från olika värden för att beskriva upplevelseindustrins potentiella 

effekter. Förutom de direkta effekterna som kan kvantifieras märks en rad indirekta. Kärnan för alla dessa värden, det vill säga centrumet i solsystemet,  är  likväl  densamma  –  personer  som  verksamheterna  är beroende av för att uppstå och utvecklas. I fallet med Hultsfredsfestivalen och  Rock City  består  dessa  personer  av  både  artister  och  eldsjälar/arrangörer.  ”Skapande”  har  alltså  en  vid  innebörd.  Ett  synsätt  som betonar  en  långsiktig  satsning  på  ett  sådant  centrum  är  kritiskt  i  en satsning på upplevelseindustrin.Rapporten betonar dessutom att effekterna av upplevelseindustrin bör analyseras  utifrån  sitt  sammanhang.  Hultsfred  har  15 000  invånare varav  5 000  i  tätorten.  Från  att  ha  varit  en  blomstrande  industriort under  1970-talet  har  kommunen  mött  många  motgångar  på  senare tid. I denna situation är effekten stor av 70 arbetstillfällen i Rock City, nyföretagande,  utbildningar  som  innebär  240  heltidsstuderande  på 

orten samt att orten förknippas med framgång och innovationer.

Consolidating the music scenes perspective

Bennett, A.
Poetics
32(2004) 223–234

The concept of scene has long been used by musicians and music journalists to describe the clusters of musicians, promoters and fans, etc., who grow up around particular genres of music. Typically, this everyday usage of scene has referred to a particular local setting, usually a city or district, where a particular style of music has either originated, or has been appropriated and locally adapted. Examples here would include Chicago blues, New Orleans jazz and Nashville Country music, as well as numerous lesser known instances of local musical innovation and production.

Since the early 1990s, the concept of scene has also begun to acquire currency as an academic model of analysis. Scene’s significance in this respect has resulted partly from the criticism and rejection of prior theoretical frameworks used in research on music, and the local, notably subcultural theory (see, for example, Clarke, 1981; Bennett, 1999), and also due to the influential work on ‘‘art worlds’’ and cultural industries (Becker, 1982). Peterson and Bennett (2004) observe as an academic research model that the concept of scene can usefully be subdivided into three categories: local (Cohen, 1991; Shank, 1994), trans-local (Kruse, 1993; Hodkinson, 2002) and virtual (Kibby, 2000; Bennett, 2002). The purpose of this paper is to assess the different ways that scene has been conceptualised in academic research as a means of understanding music as a ‘resource’ in contemporary everyday life.

Arts Festivals and the City.

QUINN B.
Urban Studies. 42(5-6) 927-943
42(5-6) 927-943
There has been a remarkable rise in the number of urban arts festivals in recent decades. The outcomes of cities' engagement with arts festivals, however, remain little understood, particularly in social and cultural terms. This article reviews existing literature on urban festivals and argues that city authorities tend to disregard the social value of festivals and to construe them simply as vehicles of economic generation or as 'quick fix' solutions to city image problems. While such an approach renders certain benefits, it is ultimately quite limiting. If arts festivals are to achieve their undoubted potential in animating communities, celebrating diversity and improving quality of life, then they must be conceived of in a more holistic way by urban managers. Currently, the tasks of conceptualizing the problems at issue and devising appropriate policies are hampered by the scarcity of empirical research conducted in the area.
