The 2018 Moonrise Festival in Houston was the second-highest-grossing festival of the year with over $1.4 billion in ticket sales, but many other festivals around the country have also been profitable and enjoyed big returns on investment.
Here are some of the most successful festival offerings from 2018.
Carnival, The Carnival Festival in Paris The festival’s first year of success was marked by a surge in attendance and a dramatic drop in ticket prices, but it has since been plagued by the French government’s plans to impose a three-month blackout for the entire festival.
With prices soaring, the festival’s organizers are currently attempting to renegotiate its contract with the French authorities and are seeking a 30 percent discount.
After spending about $1 million in the first half of 2018, Carnival’s budget has shrunk to $1,200,000.
Last year, the event drew over 5 million people, including an estimated 100,000 who paid $3,000 for a ticket.
Last weekend, Carnival announced it will cancel the festival, citing “concerns over security” after a police raid on the event last weekend.
The festival had its biggest year ever, bringing in over $3 billion.
The World Cup, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, July 6, 2018 – With more than 12 million people expected to attend, the World Cup was the most-watched event of the summer.
The event, which was originally scheduled to take place July 6-8, was rescheduled for July 21, 2018.
The International Olympic Committee (IOC) announced in March that it would increase the number of international games in 2020 from 14 to 18, but there are concerns that the number could increase to 20 games by 2022, the year before the Olympics begin.
The IOC also announced in May that the 2022 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea, would be moved from the 2019 Winter Olympics to 2018.
This decision came after the IOC voted in favor of the city’s bid to host the 2022 Games, which will be held in a city that has not hosted an Olympics since 1988.
The announcement led to some negative publicity for Pyeongsang, with the city being accused of cheating on a host city application, and a local politician calling for a boycott of the event.
The city has since reversed the decision, but this past weekend the International Olympic committee announced that it was moving the 2022 Olympic Games from Pyeoungchang to Pyeongyang in 2022, and that the bid committee will also be moving the 2024 Olympics from Puyallup, Washington, to Pohang, North Korea, in 2022.
The 2020 Olympics in Seoul, South-east Asia, July 12, 2018 — The 2020 Summer Games were held in Seoul on July 12-14.
The country’s government announced that all residents will be allowed to participate in the Games, with no admission fees or blackout restrictions.
However, Seoul’s residents had to register and pay an extra $300 for the privilege.
Many Korean celebrities and other top athletes were in attendance, including the Olympic gold medal winner, Park Seung-hoon.
The Olympics’ official Twitter account posted an image of Seung Hyun-ho with a message saying, “The IOC is taking an important step toward hosting the 2020 Olympics and the people of Korea will be proud to show their support for them.”
However, the announcement caused an outcry on social media, as many South Korean celebrities, including rapper Psy, took to Twitter to complain that the Olympics were being held in the name of the country’s “war on drugs.”
The Seoul metropolitan government will hold a “no-shows” meeting on August 5 to discuss the issue.
Festival season, Mexico City, Mexico, July 8, 2018- Mexico’s Festival de la Familia, which has been held annually in Mexico since the 1970s, was held last weekend and was one of the biggest ticket-selling events of the festival season.
According to the organizers, attendance at the festival was nearly 1.7 million people.
This year’s festival drew over 8 million people and a total of $1 billion in tickets sales.
This was followed by a 10 percent drop in prices.
Festival organizers said they were still negotiating with the Mexican government, but the number had dropped to $500 per ticket.
The price of admission to the festival is set at $30, which is a reduction of $20 from the previous year.
Last month, Mexico’s President Enrique Peña Nieto ordered the country to impose “serious restrictions” on the festival.
The ban included banning the sale of alcohol, food and other goods during the festival and banning all food sales on the grounds that they violate “social, cultural and economic freedoms.”
Mexican state media reported that more than 100 people were arrested during the crackdown.
Festival, New York, USA, July 9, 2018 – The 2018 World Music Festival was one the biggest music festivals of the season, with attendance topping 5 million in attendance.
