On September 1st 2020, the GLTRG sponsored sessions dedicated to “Festivals and the city: the festivalisation of public space” were held online. These sessions were meant to take place at the 2020 RGS-IBG Annual Conference, which was postponed due to the Coronavirus crisis, but the organisers were keen to go ahead with them anyway. As originally planned, there were three sessions – two conventional sessions of consecutive papers, followed by an hour long panel session. The recordings of these sessions are available below.

Introduction: Andrew Smith


Session 1: Chaired by Severin Guillard


Session 2: Chaired by Goran Vodicka


Panel session: Chaired by David McGillivray
