FestX Awards 2018

What are the FestX Awards?

The FestX Awards honors innovators in the festival space, celebrates festival producers and their peers, and most importantly, rewards incredible accomplishments. FestX aims to bring the festival production industry together to learn and celebrate the culture built and sustained by our peers. We reward the visionaries, the people who make these shared visions a reality.

By drawing attention to creative progress, we believe other festival producers and attendees will find inspiration to build on their agendas for the year ahead. By celebrating these resources and experiences, energy spreads to other producers committed to progress and bold creativity.

Our Mission

Festivals are outstanding entertainment. We know this, you know this, the world knows this. More than just a great party, festivals are a microcosm of our world at large. Festivals are the perfect place for experimentation and innovation in the name of entertainment. Building year-round communities, delighting all five of our senses, and creating inclusive spaces - festivals are the most well-equipped events to enable those experiences. Where tens of thousands of people gather, shared visions develop. What happens over the course of a festival does not have to end there.

In all corners of the festival world, groundbreakers and tastemakers create events that break new ground every year. XLIVE and Everfest will unite the festival industry to honor innovators, celebrate festival producers and their peers, and most importantly: to reward incredible accomplishments.


Winners will be celebrated during the XLIVE Conference held at Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino, Las Vegas on Tuesday, December 11, 2017.
