About the IFF
IFF is an invitation-only event for booking agents and festival bookers. IFF is held in early autumn, as conversations about next years’ festival line-ups begin, and it provides a dedicated platform for buyers and sellers to network.
Around this core principle, IFF’s partner agencies showcase the hottest new festival-ready artists from their rosters, while a programme of panels, workshops and keynote interviews allows leaders and innovators in the music festival space to share knowledge and best practice.
IFF has a deliberately focused delegation restricted to festivals with a capacity of at least 10,000 per day, and key booking agencies. All previous editions of IFF have sold out several weeks in advance.
The 2019 edition of IFF will host 700 delegates, the cream of the global music festival business. Delegates are expected to attend from over 30 international markets, representing over 450 festivals.
In 2018, IFF’s partner companies included Ticketmaster, the UK’s Department for International Trade, Festicket, Weezevent, Yourope and the IJFO. Agency partners included CAA, WME Entertainment, Coda, X-ray Touring, Primary Talent, UTA and ATC Live.
