The music festival is coming of age in India, and with it, the need for a Technical Director. Often it is someone from a sound engineering background, but with the added skill set of working with Excel sheets and general mathematics. Today, music festivals don’t just rely on hiring a sound and light company, but work on hiring people that map the entire technical requirements of a festival, as well as create an experience for the consumer which entails effective cost management, simultaneously meeting artiste requirements. The session goes into the details of the need, the roles and responsibilities of Technical Directors and skilled technical crews at live events.
