Festival Congress

Festival Congress is the annual flagship event organised by the Association of Independent Festivals (AIF). It is the largest gathering of independent festivals in the UK, with over 300 industry delegates expected to attend in 2022.

Attended by 74% of AIF members on average, with an average total of 352 attendees each year (from 2014-2019), the Congress has rapidly evolved to become a fixture and must attend event in the festival industry calendar. 

Festival Congress is being relaunched for 2022 and will take place in Bristol for the first time on Tuesday February 15th. The conference will be held at M Shed Museum and the evening festival party at Lost Horizon. 

Festival Congress is a unique B2B networking event and has a progressive and innovative format, including high profile keynotes, engaging panel sessions, TED x style quick fire talks, breakout workshops and fireside chats with experts and inspiring personalities from across the festival and events world.
