_______________________________________________________________________________ FESTIVAL CONNECTIONS
An Annual Programme of Expertise, Knowledge, and Networking between India and the UK. Building foundations: Youth-focused festivals __________________________________________________________________________________
Festivals throughout the world have always sought the company of the young. The live energy, the edginess, the glamour, as well as the exposure to alternate content have encouraged the youth to continuously engage with festival content.
At 24 crore (242 million), India has the world's largest population of young people under the age of 24 years. Combined with a burgeoning middle class and internet-driven explorations of identity over the past two decades, the college festival circuit is quickly becoming the go-to platform for youth identity.
In this session, we put the spotlight on the youth-led festivals of the country — how they do it, why they do it, and what keeps them running. We invite this vibrant community of digital natives, risk takers, and disruptors to the conversation on building festivals, and to build a bridge for the exchange of ideas and expertise between the new order and established models of festival business.
