In conversation with Chip Conley - Fest300
With 8,300 food festivals, 4,000 film festivals, 3,800 music festivals, and countless others worldwide ranging from the cultural to the plain bizarre, there’s a celebration for everyone. Seasoned festival expert Chip Conley avows, “The more virtual we get, the more ritual we need.” INFORUM is bringing you a festival curation live: We’ll explore the world’s best festivals, how to get your local fill, and the pursuit of cultural curiosity. Festival founders and insiders will kick off the evening with their back stories, followed by an interactive reception with fest-connoisseurs for some personal festival consulting. From Brazil’s Carnaval to Outside Lands in your backyard – get inspired, join the transformative festival community, and find yourself.
