FestEvo Ushers In A New Chapter To Festival Culture
Festivals have become an integral element of our society because they provide a very necessary escape from the confines of everyday life. Often these escapes feel far more real and fruitful than the days we spend without those loops of fabric dangling from our wrists. It is from this new and exciting world that the vision for FestEvo has been birthed. Today FestEvo announces the release of its game-changing web platform for FestivalGoers. The platform and accompanying Android and IOS app provide solutions to many problems people face when attending festivals by providing technology, education, and gear tailored for festival-specific usage.
FestEvo is the brainchild of CEO and Founder Tucker Gumber, also known as The Festival Guy. Over the past 7 years, Gumber has attended over 126 festivals, totaling 430 festival days with a cumulative 10,000+ festival hours. His journey began in 2011, and as he attended more festivals, he began to notice several universal festival challenges and set out solve them.
The term “festivaling” may sound foreign and even awkward to some, but to many of us who live and breathe music it is a very real passion. As challenging and beneficial as any other outdoor pursuit, festivaling should be viewed in the same way that hiking, fishing, and biking are. However, unlike those other more traditional hobbies, festivaling lacks widespread legitimacy and a collective code of conduct.
The FestEvo platform was created to
- Legitimize Festivaling as an outdoor hobby by establishing much-needed etiquette
- Incentivize fans to discover and support up-and-coming artists
- Unite the festival community
- Create the gear FestivalGoers always needed and promote the industry’s top vendors
- Reward FestivalGoers for being active participants in the community
FestEvo’s gear store gives FestivalGoers access to products designed specifically for their needs for the first time. To make travel to and from events simpler, FestEvo has partnered with Priceline to offer members great travel deals. And FestEvo Preferred Vendors features some of the hottest fashion (and function) in the festival industry from brands like SpiritHoods, Grassroots Colorado and JUCY RV rentals with exclusive deals and discounts for FestEvo members only.
Alongside the release of the platform is the launch of “The FestivalGoers Guide,” a 164-page book that brings together festival philosophy, etiquette and hacks that Veteran FestivalGoers use to achieve their best festival. The FestivalGoers Guide is Gumber’s second book, following 2016’s release of “The Festival Thrower’s Bible,” in partnership with Vendini.
FestEvo will not only educate newcomers and vets of the festival scene, but it will also reward FestivalGoers for sharing their ideas on music, tricks and tips that they have picked up along the way and giving back to the communites that help host these events.
With this new and innovative platform, the world of music festivals will never be the same. Now artists and festivals will be able to connect with fans and music lovers in a bold and more intimate way.
