What a festival “says” and “does”: reflections on festivals and festivalisation
Gotland University, School of the Humanities and Social Science.
2011 (English)Conference paper, Published paper (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

An important aspect of festivals is heightened density, a condensation of people intime and space, which leads to raised levels of esthetic expression and attention. A reason for the spread of festivals is its role in a growing world-wide attention economy, in which festivals function as a kind of exchange offices where cultural and social capital can be transformed into other forms of currency. Festivals are important also as collective manifestations in an era of growing individualism, and can be seen as congenial expressions of a new “postmodern” ethos.
