Abstract

This book presents an overview of cultural festivals, a ubiquitous contemporary phenomenon. Using a European case-study approach it explores theoretical perspectives to provide a rigorous basis for understanding the growth in festivals, their production processes and impacts. Drawn from the groundbreaking work undertaken by the European Festivals Research Project, the authors are drawn from across Europe and include both academics and festival directors.
