‘Festivals of Electronic Music and New Technologies’ OMAR SALINAS EVENTS
 
Description of the festival
‘Festivals of Electronic Music and New Technologies’ OMAR SALINAS EVENTS was born as a cultural and leisure choice, capable of bringing to the township where it takes place to the forefront of modernity. Aimed at an audience ranging from 20 to 45 years old, it is a landmark event both at a national and European level, which brings between 10,000 and 20,000 people together, all of whom love new trends and cultural currents, in which electronic music plays a unifying and decisive role.
 
The experience developed in other cities (Arganda del Rey (Rock n Rio), Berlin (Love Parade), Burgos (Electrosonic), to name a few nearby and other similar ones) proves that to institutionalize a first class cultural and innovative event ‘promotes and revitalizes extraordinary the potential of a city in all of its fields’.
 
‘Festivals of Electronic Music and New Technologies’
OMAR SALINAS EVENTS is a concept which encompasses several artistic creations, including some of the most advanced trends, such as music, video art and digital technology, which brings together a very wide typology of audience within a target age where we find all segments and sections of society and all types of cultural groups. A target of restless consumerist nature, ideal for projecting all the cultural industry, tourism and leisure of the township where the festival takes place.
 
‘Festivals of Electronic Music and New Technologies’ with OMAR SALINAS EVENTS’ seal is, by design, much more than a meeting place for lovers of electronic music and new trends.

Forecast of assistance at the electronic music festival OMAR SALINAS EVENTS
To be certain of the assistance there will be in a festival of this kind it’s necessary to to do an analysis of concerts, festivals and similar events that have taken place in the Spanish state, highlighting the date and public assistance, both in their first and latest edition.
In any case there is an expected attendance of at least 10.000 people, and may reach 20.000, depending on the features and capability of hosting town.
 
Defining the audience
Qualitative data
Qualitatively, we can define the public attending these festivals as an opinion leader and a trendsetter, with a good attitude towards consumption. We can ensure they adopt behaviors "EarlyAdopters" and "FirstsFollowers".
 
The "Clubber" is our ultimate target. Because of their high cultural and social level, they are known to be very consumerists and technology fans(electronic equipment, mobile phones, iPods, music ...) and always in the latest trends in tourism, culture and fashion in its widest range. They spend most of their salary in being at the forefront and in the most fashionable places.
 
Quantitative data
Quantitatively, the vast majority are urban youth, aged between 20 and 35 (70%), with a middle income and upper-middle (90%) and who come from large cities and towns with over 20.000 inhabitants .
 
Geographic Distribution / backgrounds
75% of the audience is from Spain. Whilst the remaining 25% comes from Europe, mainly from Germany and England.
 

Financing, price of tickets and sales channels
 
The electronic music festival OMAR SALINAS EVENTS is perfectly self-financed. The sale of tickets and drinks to visitors, as well as contributions from sponsors can cover the costs of organizing the festival.
 
Thus, the administration who organizes the event can decide whether to carry out a sponsored event dedicated to the township, or if they want to recover the investment made prior to the booking and hiring of artists, by means of the way of income stipulated for the festival (ticket sales, sponsors ...).
 
The prices listed for ticket sales (regardless the fact of adjusting the price for each particular festival) is around 35€ for a 1 day ticket and 50€ for 2 days.
 
To make the management and control easier, official sales channels are established in the festival website (website created specifically for that event) as well as other routes that are considered appropriate and safe, as could be big shopping centers (like El Corte Inglés), important web pages like Atrápalo or the websites of festival partners.
 


Communication, Marketing and Promotional Media
 
The spread of the electronic music festival OMAR SALINAS EVENTS develops into three wide coordinated promotional activities at national and international levels, to ensure reaching the target audience:
 
• Our own communication, promotion and advertising campaign, where the logos of the sponsors and partners play an important role.
• The communication done by the artists involved in the media, especially their websites.
• The promotional activities, marketing and advertising developed by sponsors, partners and collaborators.
 

Communication campaign, promotion and advertising of the festival
Given the profile of our target audience, which has its own communication channels and codes, it is absolutely necessary to have the cooperation and use the services of highly specialized in avant-garde music and new trends companies... OMAR SALINAS EVENTS counts on companies of recognized solvency and consolidated in the sector to carry out these specific promotions.
 
However, our communications department carries out in parallel, a global communication that helps position the Festival and the town host in the leading cultural and touristic trends.
 
The communication plan includes the following:
 
• Creation of a Festival press office.
• A national printing campaign, focusing more locally or nearby to encourage participation of citizens in the surrounding areas (posters, flyers, billboards ...).
• Agreements and joint actions with national and international media for the printing, broadcast and on-line, mainly specialized in the target goal.
• Advertising campaign in general and specialized media; local, national and international.
• Various promotions that allow access to target audiences through tour operators, sponsors, promoters ...
• The creation of a specific website for each festival and specific event of OMAR SALINAS EVENTS, from which aspects of work positioning and actions in various social networks are carried out, as well as exchanges and links to other websites, blogs and chat rooms in our sphere of action.
 


The role of public administrations
 
One of the mainstays of OMAR SALINAS EVENTS is that the long journey undertaken, so far has always had the support of local authorities in the town hosts where the events have taken place.
 
To have the appropriate permissions, ideal spaces, security control, respect for the town host and the residents are part of the key to success of OMAR SALINAS EVENTS. And this requires government support and co work with them in the organization, so there are no contingencies that alter the proper celebration and success of the festival.
 
At present, the government support to these events also becomes a complementary way for town halls to overcome the crisis, as it offers a modern cultural and touristic alternative, with great power to gather people and as a source of income for the township and host town.
