It may be genuine customer demand, it may be organisers just coasting, for a specialist festival it may just be too small a pool of performers.

The trouble with "customer demand" is being sure of which customers you are listening to. You may have a group of vocal regulars but, at the same time, discourage new customers from becoming regulars. A festival (or club) can run like this for quite some time but eventually will hit a tipping point and go into serious decline. The important thing is balance.

Wasn't it Pete Seeger who once said, "Don't give 'em what they want, give 'em what they need" ?

The public are paying. If that's what they want, give it em.

Spot on Steve.

Most festivals are annual as most guests booked in clubs. Most festivals have a large line-up of guests. Does it matter? The public are paying. If that's what they want, give it em.

People will get tired of even the best performers eventually. A high level of repeat bookings is more likely to be the sign of organisers in a rut.

It doesn't bother me if a couple of acts play every year. More than a couple would be tiresome if I attended the festival every year. I guess this could be a problem for smaller regional festivals.

Should artists perform at a folk festival year in year out if that what the public wants or should they have a couple of years off
