Darren and Morgan, founders of Marcato

It all started 10 years ago with two musicians who were traveling and playing at festivals, then sharing ideas about the music industry on the tour van. Both musicians at heart with years of experience in the music industry, they also had business savvy and technical skills. And a dream to fix the music industry.

We talk to a lot of festival organizers on a weekly basis. Many of them are in search for a better solution than the generic systems they’re using, like spreadsheets or word documents. But one of the common questions we get asked: “Is your software solution only used by music festivals?” And our answer is always of course not! We’ve been working in the festival & live events space for a decade now. Over those 10 years, we’ve had the…

When learning how to plan a festival, it’s important to remember that there are hundreds of festivals being put on every year and each of these festivals are planning their own amazing events that will reflect the unique cultures and energies of their individual visions. Because of these unique factors, no one festival will plan for their event in the exact same way. However, while working with over 125 festivals spread across the globe on a day-to-day basis at Marcato, we’ve…

The festival management industry has experienced a major revolution with the introduction of specialized festival management software over the past five years.  This high tech approach to streamlining collaboration and oversight continues to attract festivals of all sizes, ranging from town-based organizations to producers of the industry’s biggest events, like California’s Goldenvoice (Coachella, Stagecoach) and the Country Music Association (CMA Fan Fest).

This year we were so excited that the ECMA’s were held in Halifax, Nova Scotia. This made our usual trek to the event a quick one. All we had to do was scoot across the causeway for some great music, food and networking! As usual East Coast Music Week was no disappointment. We were able to meet some amazing new people, hang with some old friends (from near and far) and check out some amazing bands. This year was Marcato’s first…

Working at Marcato Festival I get to speak with festivals of all sizes around the world on a daily basis, but it’s not every day that I get the opportunity to be a part of one!

Celtic Colours takes place all over the island of Cape Breton, making it a unique event with complex…

This past weekend I was lucky enough to catch a free daytime show at the Halifax Jazz Festival.  It was a beautiful day to take a stroll along the boardwalk and catch the music of Joe Murphy & The Water Street Blues Band. I didn’t happen to get a video of the performance but I found this great one on Youtube! My friends and I found a shaded spot to sit and enjoyed the music while watching the sail boats go by. Everyone was…
