Regardless of the type of event you are creating, your control of the sounds heard by the guests will be part of their experience. For some, this involves a full plan - every band playing, when they play, who they follow, who finishes the event. For others, you'll need to understand how music can create a feeling, how silence can be overwhelming and, how quiet spaces are important even in the heaviest of concerts!
Putting together the musical framework for your event isn't that different from creating a playlist or mixtape - except way bigger!
If you're using musical performers at a festival you'll need to get the balance right. Jumping from one style to another can be a problem!
Nowhere else on Earth uses music to set the tone as well as Disney. Every zone uses music differently; each area creating its own tone.
Sure, a theme park is different from a festival but there are many similarities that you can 'borrow' to strengthen your event. Don't underestimate Disney!
Thinking of not controlling sound at your event? You might want to reconsider...
Quiet zones are useful, but don't make them too quiet!
