Right off of the top I can tell you that Arte for Elephants could not do what we do without Festivalnet. I use it to book everything, EVERYTHING! I had a second service for a back up, but the search feature was clunky, and they didn't have the filtering AND they only had half of the listings... so adios! Now it's Festivalnet 100%.
Without FN, I would still be wondering where the shows are, it's great to be a part of this, I have made my money back a thousand times over.
Having used FestivalNet for 10+ years, it saves me the stress of looking for venues, gives information enabling me to make "intelligent" decisions on which festivals to attend, helps me keep track of where I'm going and where I want to go, the reviews are a huge help & I have event contacts at my finger tips. I have NEVER had any problems getting a response back from this company & I would NEVER think of changing. FestivalNet has proven to me they are one of the very few reputable companies left out there.
