in a panel about (music) touring a few years ago, some artistic directors suggested that as an artist/performer with a product – meaning a recording, i.e. an album or cd (it was in 2003) festival directors, managers, or promoters encourage bands, artist, or performers to have a new “product” every 2 and a half to 3 years, at least. one, it shows you are out there working; two, you have material(s) that is/are current.
granted, one of their main goals is to support and help promote the artists/bands/performers’ music, but it also helps them create an image as a festival that seeks and presents artists whose work is relevant and up to speed with the times and social issues. keeping this in mind, and nick’s point, posting videos of updated repertoire or what one does regularly makes more sense than posting videos of performances from, say, ten or 6 years ago, just to pick some arbitrary numbers.
