Festival Republic to organise third crime summit

By | Published on Thursday 16 December 2010

Festival Republic has confirmed it will next month host another Crime At Major Music Festivals conference, where festival promoters, security companies and police forces meet to discuss how they can further step up crime prevention at major music events. 

This is the third time Festival Republic has organised such a conference, and its top man Melvin Benn has told Music Week that he believes the past meetings have proven “invaluable in terms of sharing intelligence and communicating a strong and cohesive message to criminals that their actions will not be tolerated”.

A key topic to be discussed at next month’s event will be how festival promoters and police forces around the corner can better share intelligence regarding criminals who tour the festival circuit.
