More recent phases of place marketing have sought to redirect public policy away from the provision of utilities, infrastructure and ‘safety net’ services, towards various corporate activities, such as ‘place-branding’ exercises aimed at attracting mobile investment capital and tourists. Local communities can either become increasingly repulsed by place promotion and tourism (including festivals), becoming resistant to festivals in the process (Chapter 9), or they get used to the ‘image’ projected from their place to the wider world, and come to adjust to life in the tourist spotlight, so long as the gains are substantial enough (Chapter 6).

Many festivals stress the presence of distinguished performers and, like Opera in the Paddock, an opportunity for regional musicians to interact with them, and enable career development. Festivals may directly be musically innovative. Place Marketing and Place Identities Employment and the contribution of tourist expenditure are only the most obvious impacts of music festivals. Even when events create few full-time jobs, and only briefly support the local economy, they have intangible and usually positive effects on places.

Others started because of desires to promote particular musical genres, because of the efforts of enthusiastic fans and local musical clubs looking for a focal point on their annual calendars of events, or because musicians themselves sought outlets for performance where few previously existed. Many music festivals in small towns happened just once, or lasted for a few years depending on the enthusiasm of the local organising committee or local government-employed festival organiser. Others survived, gained reputations and developed their own heritages and traditions, rising from small beginnings to national and even international prominence.
