Music, Mud and Making Money

Over 400 festivals take place in Britain every year, but as Radio 1's Greg James finds out, there is more to them than just a weekend of music and fun. Festivals are big business and serve to illustrate some key business concepts.

Designed for GCSE business studies students, the programme goes backstage at a music festival to explain five important concepts: entrepreneurship, sole trading, franchises, companies and profit and loss. The films feature interviews with festival traders and key music industry businesses, from an enterprising tent hire company to the ice-cream franchise dishing out hundreds of cones to sweet-toothed festival goers.
