Our friend Dan Ruby has just launched a completely overhauled and updated version of his site Festival Preview. The site is designed to be a one-stop source for news, opinion, and comment on festivals of all genres happening anywhere in North America.
Portions of the site are dedicated to Roots music (includes Bluegrass, Folk, and Americana), Rock, R&B, Jazz, and Classical. Each genre page includes information about upcoming festivals, a featured artist, news aggregated from around the web via RSS (the Roots section includes news from Bluegrass Today), featured articles, and festival reviews.
Another feature you may find of interest is the group blogs for each genre. These blogs consist of festival reviews written by a core group of fans that have partnered with Festival Preview. They are still seeking additional bloggers at this time.
If you attend multiple festivals and want to share your thoughts and experiences with Festival Preview readers, we invite you to apply. We can’t pay but will help you secure press credentials for festivals you wish to attend. Apply to join our blogging team.
Festival Preview should prove to be a great asset for those who enjoy attending music festivals. You’ll be able to find all the festivals you might be interested in, Preview them, and then review them after you attend thereby helping others make decisions in the future.
