Festival Productions, Inc., owned by legendary jazz entrepreneur George Wein, has joined with Shoreline Media, LLC, to form the Festival Network, LLC, an entertainment and production company designed to offer music lovers a more diverse entertainment experience and provide sponsors with a larger audience. The new network has scheduled 18 music festivals for this year, with plans to produce festivals leading up to, and coinciding with, the 2008, 2010 and 2012 Olympic Games.
In a press release, Festival Network President John Phillips stated, “We are committed to continuing our relationships with our current sponsors and we look forward to forging new partnerships, not just in music, but in sports and entertainment as well.”
