I had the privilege of heading to the offices of Festival Republic, who produce some of the most exciting festivals currently running. Latitude, Reading and Leeds, Electric Picnic, Hove and the Berlin Festival are all in the roster of Festival Republic, so it’s clear to see why they are considered so elite in the industry.

I was there to talk to Sharon Reuben, who is Head of Artist Liaison within Festival Republic, but she is additionally tasked with booking the activities in the Children's, Teens and Families area of Latitude. The festival has become the first in the country to become an Arts Award Supporter organisation, and this year is embracing the award in a big way.

This interview was predominantly to discuss this partnership, but with such a rare opportunity to gain insight into one of the worlds leading festival producers, we covered a lot of content.
