Is there still an audience for more music festivals? This panel will talk about do’s and don’ts when starting a festival and the role of tech and social media in the Latin American music festival industry.

Colombia and Chile are leaders with Estéreo Picnic, Primavera Fauna and the recently cancelled Lollapalooza. What are the challenges of starting a music festival in Latin America? How can technology help produce, market and sell tickets? What tools are being used by the biggest festivals in South America?
