Big changes afoot at The Festival Gadget

Up until now, our festival listings have been offered up on a monthly subscription basis. As part of that service we routinely updated our festival data — details such as festival dates and festival venues — and made these updates available to our clients via their own customised database.

After consultation with our existing clients we've scrapped the subscription model. All of our clients (new and existing) will now take ownership of our festival listings for a one-time payment — a payment based on the number of listings requested. So, no more monthly charges!

We no longer update the coming dates of the festivals and events in our database, meaning we've been able to pass the savings allowed by our reduced workload directly on to our clients.

The one-time payment comes in at roughly the cost of a single year's subscription, meaning the long-term savings to our clients are significant.

As a bit of ballpark, depending on the number of listings a client is looking to purchase prices range from €2.40 to €3.00 per listing.

For more information including our full pricing model you can check in at our recently update FAQs page:

Orlando is the undisputed theme park capital of the world. From movie buffs, to thrill-seekers, to science geeks, Orlando's theme parks offer up a smorgasbord of fun for all tastes. With a year round average temperature of 28 degrees Celcius and a mere nine hours flying time from London airports, more British families than ever before are choosing an Orlando theme park holiday.

Summer in Europe is a beer lovers paradise. When the sun is out and there's more of the day gone than there is to come, Europe spills out on to the terraces and the surrounding streets of bars and cafes from Reykjavik to Nicosia. It's a wonderful time to share a half or two with friends.

Continental Europe is renowned for its variety of festivals. From world-class ballet celebrations to an appreciation of cultural history, those who are lucky enough to experience a festival during their European river cruise getaway are sure to remember it for a lifetime.

There has also been considerable socio-psychological research into the ways that crowds behave. They have their own tidal flows and currents of sentiment and emotion. Anyone who ever stood on the terraces of a packed football ground, back in the day when standing was the norm, will know the peculiar sense of being part of the herd that such a setting generated. Whether rendered as a matter of chant, shouts or physical movements, the group was somehow more real than any of its constituent parts. Capturing that dynamism in graphic form is difficult at best.
