How to enter a festival or event?

Question by booger: How to enter a festival or event?
So im in New York and i thought it was easy since im here to find out how to enter into a musical festival/concert sort of thing. You know like the local sponsored events? I googled and everything and I can’t find anything? Does anyone have experience doing this or know how to go about this? Thanks so much.

lol you have to apply for the events either at city hall or whichever event your talking about.. It varies case to case as many of them already have their people and are booked so to speak.
Also try the village voice

Le Festival Mensuel du champignon magique, l’Ego et l’avenir de la planète (sous-titre fr)

“In the situation of the monthly, boundary dissolving group mushroom festivals, ego was not allowed to form.And I really view psilocybin as almost an innoculation against the formation of ego. But as soon as the mushrooms become less available this thing begins to grow in the human personality, literally like a cancer or a tumor. It’s a calcareous growth on the psyche, that if we do not have this embeddedness in the vegetable matrix of Gaia, then anxiety arises, a lot of it sexual and related to self-identity and I don’t have to discuss this, just refer you to Freud and the whole gang. Everybody understands how bent we are, the question is why? And I think this is why. Because we have been in permanant state of neurotic disequilibrium for 15000 years. And every move to attempt to correct this has pushed us further away from the goal that we want to have. So now we arrive at the late 20th century, nuclear arsenals fully in hand. We have made since the 15th century a demonic pact with matter, that has allowed us great insight into the destructive properties of matter. Made us hand-maiden to the devil. And yet we are still completely dark about our own motivation, how to educate our children, how to put in place a set of values that don’t loot the future. And all of these problems appear to be getting worse. We’re at the end of a process call it 2000, 5000, choose your date, but a long process of denial of human nature, first, and then war against human nature. And it goes

Agata Olek Biography. The SPLAT! of colors hits you in the face, often clashing so ostentatiously that it instantly tunes you into the presence of severely cheeky humor. A moment later the fatigue of labor creeps into your fingers as a coal miner’s work ethic becomes apparent. Hundreds of miles of crocheted, weaved, and often recycled materials are the fabric from which the wild and occasionally wearable structures of her fantasylands are born.

Olek was born Agata Oleksiak in Poland and graduated from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poland with a degree in cultural studies. In New York, she rediscovered her ability to crochet and since then she has started her crocheted journey/madness.

Resume sniffers may be pleased to know Olek’s work has been presented in galleries from Brooklyn to Istanbul to Venice and Brazil, featured in "The New York Times", "Fiberarts Magazine", "The Village Voice", and "Washington Post" and drags a tail of dance performance sets and costumes too numerous to mention.

Olek received the Ruth Mellon Award for Sculpture, was selected for 2005 residency program at Sculpture Space, 2009 residency in Instituto Sacatar in Brazil, and is a winner of apex art gallery commercial competition. Olek was an artist in an independent collective exhibition, "Waterways," during the 49th Venice Biennale. She was also a featured artist in "Two Continents Beyond," at the 9th International Istanbul Biennale.

Olek herself however can be found in her Greenpoint studio with a bottle of spiced Polish vodka and a hand rolled cigarette aggressively re-weaving the world as she sees.

13th annual D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival® (Sept 25 to Sept 27, 2009)
www.dumboartfestival.org/press_release.html

The three-day multi-site neighborhood-wide event is a one-of-a-kind art happening: where serendipity meets the haphazard and where the unpredictable, spontaneous and downright weird thrive. The now teenage D.U.M.B.O. Art Under the Bridge Festival® presents touchable, accessible, and interactive art, on a scale that makes it the nation’s largest urban forum for experimental art.

Art Under the Bridge is an opportunity for young artists to use any medium imaginable to create temporary projects on-the-spot everywhere and anywhere, completely transforming the Dumbo section of Brooklyn, New York, into a vibrant platform for self-expression. In addition to the 80+ projects throughout the historical post-industrial waterfront span, visitors can tour local artists’ studios or check out the indoor video_dumbo, a non-stop program of cutting-edge video art from New York City and around the world.

The Dumbo Arts Center (DAC) has been the exclusive producer of the D.U.M.B.O Art Under the Bridge Festival® since 1997. DAC is a big impact, small non-profit, that in addition to its year-round gallery exhibitions, is committed to preserving Dumbo as a site in New York City where emerging visual artists can experiment in the public domain, while having unprecedented freedom and access to normally off-limit locations.

The evening will feature wines from 22 wineries from the Leelanau and Old Mission Peninsulas and a selection of Traverse City and Leelanau restaurants serving food & desserts. Unlike many other wine festivals which function primarily as tasting events, the Traverse City Wine & Art Festival will feature full pours of area wines.

Shop till You Drop at Dubai’s Mega Shopping Festival 2011

Shop till You Drop at Dubai’s Mega Shopping Festival 2011

Tipped as the world’s premier shopping event the Dubai Shopping Festival is also one of the biggest and most successful tourist events in the UAE’s already jam-packed tourist calendar.  Drawing a whopping 3.35 million plus retail hungry crowds from across the globe this landmark shopper’s event rakes in a mind-blowing 9.8 billion dirham during the 32 day long festival. Taking place for the 15th consecutive year, the first ever Dubai Shopping Festival took place back in 1996 attracting an impressive 1.6 million shoppers in its opening year. Having grown in size, scale and scope over the past 15 years the festival is now an international shopping event that guarantees the finest wares at reduced rates with great discounts and unbelievable bargains thrown into the mix.

 

Commencing on 20th January 2011, the festival which runs through till 20th February gives shoppers the opportunity to purchase tax free retail items and discounts on products such as textiles, jewellery, perfume, handicrafts, electronics and even cars. With the One World, One Family, One Festival as its theme, the participating countries will set up their own pavilions inside the aptly named Global Village.

 

Due to Dubai’s well-known tax free import rates, the festival is also the perfect venue to purchase top rated imported items such as timepieces, jewellery and perfumes from the world’s most popular brands. The discounts on these items range from 5- 50% as malls and retailers compete to offer the best prices. Visitors can also expect to be bombarded with a plethora of raffle draws, free gifts and other competitions that give away fantastic prizes and surprises during the festival.

 

As an event that not only highlights Dubai’s retail prowess the festival also encompasses a range of equally engaging events such as book fairs, exhibitions and operas for the differently abled. Kids and adults can all enjoy the Children of the World Olympiad, Al Rostamani Aqua Fantasia and Cartoon Shows headlined by Casper, Pokémon, Tarzan as well as the Alligator and Dolphin characters. The Carpet Oasis, Fashion Week and Global Village shows are also fun filled events for the whole family while the jazz and dance events that are organized especially during the festival are a treat for all music lovers. Sports fans on the other hand can try their hand at rowing and skating contests that are held at the festival or participate in the open tennis championship, football and ice hockey tournaments or Hockey On Synthetic Surface competitions at the venue.

 

Those on the lookout for a Dubai hotel in the heart of the city’s shopping district should look no further than the elegant Raffles Dubai, UAE. Ideally situated within 15 minutes of the nearest airport and the town’s financial centre this is one luxury hotel Dubai considers among its most conveniently located rests.
