    • Programmed Festival – someone is choosing who is going to perform, often an artistic director, and inviting companies and artists to appear. The festival organisation arranges everything, pays the artist, sells the tickets takes the risk.
    • Open Access Festival – where anyone can perform and there is no restriction, invitation or judgement to who comes. The festival organisation helps arts and companies to come but they have to arrange and pay for most things themselves. Sometimes known as the Fringe or Off .
    • Competitive Festival – more often sports but sometimes in the arts, often with traditional arts from different regions, artist usually have to raise their own money to participate.
