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%.
I have been using FestivalNet.com for over 10 years. It has saved 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 and I have event contacts at my finger tips. I have NEVER had any problems getting response back from this company and I would NEVER think of changing. FestivalNet.com has proven to me they are one of the very few reputable companies left out there.
We just signed up for FN, and have to say we're really glad we found you. I've been playing music at festivals since the 1970s but have been away from doing the booking myself since the 1980s. We also are restarting our booth selling our original artwork. What a terrific resource FN is. Getting booked is up to us, but I remember the old days - it took a lot of research to find the info available here with a couple of clicks. And, since we are applying as both musicians and a vendor, the search filters on the pro search are a huge, huge time saver. Which means it's a money saver.
Without FestivalNet 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.
Attention All Vendors And Food Truck Owners: If you are searching for an online resource to find the best fairs, festivals and events to operate your business in I assure you that FestivalNet is the best you will find for all the information you will require to do the fairs, festivals and events that will best fit your business profile. The people that run this business and website are some of the nicest people I have ever worked with and they will always take the time to help you with your every need even if they have to go over and beyond their normal excellent customer service. This is the experience I have had with this business! The operations Manager Julie Cochrane is amazing! Also FestivalNet's prices are extremely fair but the information they will provide to you will be invaluable for your business.
I love you guys. You are the best money I ever spent. Thanks for the info.
As seasoned entertainers of the fair and festival business, the FN site is the most thorough and informative source online today. We spend many, many dollars per year on advertising, trade shows, promo materials and clientele research. The "drop in the bucket" fee for being a pro member is invaluable in it's returns of yearly salary. FestivalNet is always our recomendation to anyone that asks. Thanks for this extraordinary wealth of information.
Y'alls site is the most comprehensive, yet user-friendly when it comes to festivals, events, etc. I've been very satisfied with your content, the ease of use and believe me, have compared it side-by-side to your competition. I will be upgrading for the coming festival year, because of at least two features which will be most needed for organization, "Add event to My List" and "Add event to My Calendar" (once I have those, the entire site will be a huge asset for efficiency)!
I'm sooo glad to have festivalnet.com... it's like I have an extra 'life-line for my craft business'.
I have found the site to be very user friendly. You have put together a very extensive listing. Sure makes it easier than spending hours and hours of surfing the web. Worth every penny of the membership fee.
I am a new food vendor and I joined FN last year. This is the most detailed source for leads on events that I have found. I use it quite frequently and plan on being a member for a long time. This membership is a good investment and a must have in my opinion!
FN is the very best resource I've ever come upon for the concise factual information I need for booking myself and my band. Your pro update is invaluable in giving me the real details concerning the viability of any given festival. FN has most of the work and research done before I even go looking for a booking. The Pro membership is worth every penny invested.
Finally a service that's worth its money. Highly recommend your company to other crafters. I've only been a member for a week and it has already paid for itself. One of my best shows canceled and I was able to replace it thanks to your listing. Had I not been a member I would not have been able to get the info I needed in time to meet the other shows deadline and would not have had no income for that week. Kudos.
We love festivalnet. It has really helped us in our quest for shows across the country.
I have been using FN for 12 years and have discontinued other guides/subscriptions in favor of your web site. It is the easiest and most complete...
Your site has more event listings and details that any I've seen. Well worth the money. Thanks!
Just wanted to let you know that we really do appreciate your excellent service. It is so much easier to search for shows online rather than having to consult multiple show directories. Keep up the good work.
Your service is exemplary and it is a pleasure to refer you to others.
Your web-site is outstanding! Not only is it 150% informative, but considerable thought, as well as effort, went into the planning of this web-site. Not only is it informative and factual - but it answers all the questions an artist such as myself has about an event, and is totally user-friendly. Plus the fact that you can sort the information on-line and even export to your own personal file is absolutely priceless! I couldn't have done a better job of setting up this site if I had done it myself - and I have worked on the most sophisticated computers/software for over 20 years! Congrats on a job well done. I will never subscribe to another festival planner - I simply don't need to! I intend on recommending your business/web-site to every artist/crafter that I come in contact with. No need to say "keep up the good work" - because apparently you already know what you're doing!
Finally! A search engine that we can really use on your database. Congratulations and kudos for all of your hard work. I've been asking for this for years. This makes my job a LOT easier without having to spend hours and hours harvesting festival information. THANKS!
This website is a score! We are new to the food vendor business and have gotten so much info from your website. We have gotten responses from many festivals already... We are so glad we found you online.
