Why do I love planning events, specifically festivals? You get to make everything come to life. It’s an incredible feeling to spend months if not a full year planning, and coming up with ideas, just to see them come to life. Not only do they come to life, other people get to enjoy all that fun planning you’ve been doing. I love to see an event space be completely blank and by the end of the day it’s a festival! It’s a glorious to see people from all walks of life come together to party for a common cause.
I love hearing from attendees how much fun they had. I’ll never forget my first Blues Festival I produced, it was a long day, lots of hard work and I was tired. This attendee came up to me and said, “This is incredible, you HAVE to do it again!” Those comments make all the long hours, and stress worth it.
I take all of my attendee’s feedback, I keep all of it, and what I can implement I do! I wish I could do all of it, but unfortunately I don’t have all of the magic super powers. Being an event planner really is like having superpowers, maybe that’s the real reason I love it so much.
