The overarching mission of the U.S. Music Festival Clean Energy Alliance (USMFEA) is dedicated to finding clean energy solutions to power our U.S. Music Festival eco-system for generations to come. Music Festivals are so special to our team and millions in the U.S. because they bring people from all walks of life together. When you combine diversity, inclusivity with the power of music that’s an example of humanity at its best. The ultimate goal with the alliance is to make sure we preserve the music festival experience for many generations to come.
According to Nielsen’s Audience Insights Report on Music Festivals, approximately 32 million people attend at least one music festival in the U.S. each year.
The Festival Producer and team are incredibly detail-oriented and possess excellent communication skills. They must be able to multitask, delegate, meet tight deadlines, and problem-solve on the fly without losing their cool. Before the gates even open they must secure the necessary permits and insurance for the event; building relationships with local contractors and companies that provide goods and services; staffing the festival; creating materials such as maps and signage; planning (• Private Security Plan • Private Emergency Medical Services Plan • Transportation Management Plan • Camping Plan • Waste Management Plan; and • Neighborhood Resident Communication Plan). And then help first responders with Police Department Operations Plan • Fire Department Incident Plan; and • Emergency Plan, and supervising site setup and breakdown; overseeing a team and directing user experiences such as festival-centric mobile apps. They work closely with talent buyers to book and coordinate with artists and their teams. During the festival, the team is in constant motion, making sure that everyone has what they need, that all of the parts are moving smoothly, and that everything is proceeding according to plan.
An initiative calling on all U.S. Music Festival Producers to support a vision of 100% clean and renewable energy by 2026
