IFF 2017 Highlights

The International Festival Forum (IFF) celebrated another sold out edition in 2017, as ILMC’s invitation-only event for festivals and bookers returned for its third outing.

More than 600 delegates attended IFF 2017, which once again offered up a packed schedule of showcases, conference sessions, networking events and meetings.

Highlights included a Michael Eavis keynote interview with CAA’s Emma Banks, panels on festival tech, the gender gap and taking a stand against extremism and the return of the ever-popular Agent & Festival Roulette with IQ’s own Gordon Masson.

Agency partners for IFF 2017 – most of which showcased a selection of their best future festival headliners – included CAA, Coda, WME Entertainment, Primary Talent, X-ray Touring, United Talent Agency, ITB, ATC Live, OTM Touring, DMF and Pitch & Smith, while festival associations who lent their support included Yourope, De Concert! and the International Jazz Festivals Organisation (IJFO).

As in previous years, IFF 2017 took place across two London venues – Proud Camden and next door’s Dingwalls. You can view pictures from IFF 2017 on our website here.
