1) Get stuff out to directors EARLY. We all have to know where, what, etc.
we can't assume that people "just know."
more frustrating for directors than reading "there will be a guide to take
you through the entire day" only to arrive and find no one, or the
even worse group of students talking. Directors are EXTREMELY serious
about festival, as serious a marching band. If there are no guides, tell
them. Also... put up LARGE signs: check in, warm-up, etc.
3) If you sell refreshments, be sure they are reasonably priced. Many
groups can't afford $4.50 for one slice of pizza. When this happens,
kids often go hungry because they didn't bring or didn't plan for

Hope this helps. When in doubt, think of "If my child were there, what would
I want or expect."

We just completed our Solo/Ensemble Festival for the year. I'm the Chair person of the event. I'm not sure what type of music festival you are hosting but what I have found useful is several jobs need a complete job description on a clip board with a schedule for the event. This keeps things running smoothly and will let the worker know what is expected. Runners, warm-up room monitors, and door monitors find the clipboards essential. I bought ours at a dollar store. Check-in and medals sales also need a job description at their location. Also, many big directional signs are a must. Posting the event schedule in every area is also helpful. Hope all goes well! :D
