If you aspire to play a role in the future of the events industry, the IFEA Festival Management Summer School is the place you want to be. It is an exciting learning environment, combining academic teaching and best-practice lectures by event professionals with fun, hands-on, behind-the-scenes experience at the world’s leading street theater festival, the Fira de Tarrega.

The summer school is designed as a camp, creating an informal environment and allowing for plenty of personal interaction with other participants. Only a few students from each country will be selected on the basis of personal applications (see here for student information)

The topics covered are based upon elements of the IFEA’s formal ”Certified Festivals and Events Executive” accreditation programme for industry professionals. Topics while in Barcelonas include

  • festival funding and sponsorships,
  • marketing and branding, and tourism/city relations.

while in Tarrega Programming topics such as

  • artist contracting
  •  on-site production handling are covered .

Lecturers and speakers include former and current CEOs, programmers, and marketeers of multi-purpose city celebrations, fringe festivals, classical music festivals, historical reinactment events, and other, as well as artistic producers of the Fira de Tarrega.
