Music as an economic activity is explored, in addition to festivals in the United Kingdom and why they maybe located where they are. Local venues to the students, both indoors and outdoors, are investigated for their suitability for hosting a music festival.

The history and who participates in Eurovision is discussed with the positive and negative impacts of having such an event hosted in their country or town. How such an event can cause community conflict through economic, social, and environmental impacts, as well as how these events could be made more sustainable are explored.
