While there were many panels at XLIVE, one in particular seemed to catch the attention of the crowd: ‘State of the Artists - The Importance of Festivals to Musicians’, featuring Ja Rule, Dan Berkowitz, the CEO of CID Entertainment, and Steve Gordon, the owner of Circle Talent Agency. In this panel, the attendees listened to professionals speak of the positive impact that festivals have made on artists -- boosting the careers of those they manage, and how new artists can use festivals as an outlet to spark a career of success in the music industry. Not only did XLIVE focus on these panels, but also workshops where the heads of festivals go learn of new ways to enhance an event experience, taking it to the next level. The ‘Festival Mergers & Acquisitions’ workshop gained popularity by hinting at revolutionizing changes in the festival community and events worldwide.
