The Respect Festival was really good. Belmont Park is quite close to Heavitree. I wonder what folk music is about? This event is getting closer to Sidmouth as a culture. All sorts of music could be folk music somewhere. Attitudes to copyright seem very flexible too. Lots of video some of which will turn up online.

Samba Marcianas and NUMB so far. I have loaded an interview with Phonic and one clip from Bragatanga. this starts with a promotion for the Summer Festival and the Rougemont Gardens.

Why is there not more of this sort of thing? So far as I know Exeter City Council still has reservations about Flash and therefore watching YouTube is not part of the festival promotion routine. Maybe social media should just reflect this anyway. Things move slowly on YouTube so it may take a year to edit and load all material from this Respect in time to promote the next one.

I am still puzzled by the Like Minds event in Exeter. Was it just people from London and Bristol here for the day? The next one is in Helsinki. There could be some sort of benchmark. Real time in real life is not something for which you have to go to Helsinki.

I will be somewhere near St Sidwells later this week if you would like to discuss this post. They have web access so I could do a Tweet with a bit more detail. @will789gb. Topics to include how to develop video as promotion for Exeter events.
