1) What was great about Artlantis this year? Set up and break down went quickly this year. You were very helpful in set which made everything go smoothly.

5) Would you consider doing Artlantis again in the future? I am in next year for sure.

6) Anything else you would like to add? (Suggestions? Comments?) Hope you got the pictures I sent. Next time I will try to take a break and get more. I really didn’t have much time for that during the show.

1) What was great about Artlantis this year? I like that it is a well organized and very affordable show focused on local art. The price tier is a great option. I also feel that the quality of art presented has way more hits than misses than most art festivals have.

2) What could be improved upon for next year? The only thing that I would have a complaint about was that the tents and tables were being set up as we were all showing up. Maybe if everything was ready to go before our load in time. That way we could start setting up our booths immediately. The tents were not staked properly and because of the wind that morning we had some issues. My tent actually flew up into the air and landed in the walking area.

3) Did you sell enough to pay for your booth rental? Yes. I sold way over my goal.

4) Do you feel like the event was well attended? Yes.

5) Would you consider doing Artlantis again in the future? Yes.

6) Anything else you would like to add? (Suggestions? Comments?) Just Thanks. What you guys are doing is great. The idea of making it affordable is great and it seems to be curated well. Please keep the quality of art high and try to keep out as much crap as you can. I feel that some shows get watered down and the quality drops and that in turn causes two things. It makes both good artists and attendees lose interest.

1) What was great about Artlantis this year? -The weather and the people

2) What could be improved upon for next year? -Longer Load in time (maybe 8am start)

3) Did you sell enough to pay for your booth rental? -Yes!

4) Do you feel like the event was well attended? -Yes, but our row did not see all of the traffic.

5) Would you consider doing Artlantis again in the future? -Yes

6) Anything else you would like to add? (Suggestions? Comments?) -Although I am happy with the success of this year’s event and upcoming opportunities that came my way from the event, I think for next year I would love the opportunity to move the location of my booth. Only a portion of the patrons ever came over to our row of tents and most were on the way to use the restroom in the church.

1) What was great about Artlantis this year? The bands were excellent this year. And it was great that it wasn’t 1000 degrees.

2) What could be improved upon for next year? I think more featuring of the included artists from a promotional perspective (facebook etc.) would be good… like maybe 1 artist per day for the 2 weeks leading up to the festival, etc. Also, landing on the same date as 2 other festivals was probably a detracting factor, but I realize that might be impossible to prevent. 🙂

3) Did you sell enough to pay for your booth rental? I spent $50 on the booth and made about $450

4) Do you feel like the event was well attended? Not too bad!

5) Would you consider doing Artlantis again in the future? Yes, I certainly will!

———————————————————————————-

1) What was great about Artlantis this year? Everything! There was a lot of diverse booths and great music. I had an amazing time and met a lot of cool people.

2) What could be improved upon for next year? I can’t really think of anything. It was all fantastic. You can’t change the weather, but it could’ve been a little less windy.

3) Did you sell enough to pay for your booth rental? I broke even but made a lot of great contacts and got some Sam Flax coupons. So it was well worth it.

4) Do you feel like the event was well attended? Indeed! There was a wide variety of attendees and all of the booths were very interesting.

5) Would you consider doing Artlantis again in the future? I certainly would! I can’t wait til next year. I wish there were more festivals/events like this year round.

6) Anything else you would like to add? (Suggestions? Comments?) All of the Artlantis staff were extremely helpful and super friendly. A great crowd indeed! I may have missed out on some of the food, but I feel there could be more food vendors. Burgers, BBQ, things of that nature. The King of Pops was certainly a highlight. I know I must’ve eaten at least one of every flavor they had.

1) What was great about Artlantis this year? The weather!

2) What could be improved upon for next year? Not really sure – perhaps more event marketing? Though I don’t think it was lacking, there is always room for improvement.

3) Did you sell enough to pay for your booth rental? Indeed, and have every year!

4) Do you feel like the event was well attended? Yep! Has been getting better every year, keep it up!

5) Would you consider doing Artlantis again in the future? Would love to.

6) Anything else you would like to add? (Suggestions? Comments?) Nope – thought everything was fantastic.

———————————————————————————-

1) What was great about Artlantis this year? Talked to some other artists who came by my booth and got ideas and feedback on my art. It was fun!

2) What could be improved upon for next year? Suggest vendors set prices between $5 and $100. I will know next time and prepare items or prints that are low-priced.

3) Did you sell enough to pay for your booth rental? No, did not sell anything.

4) Do you feel like the event was well attended? Yes! We had exceptionally nice weather.

5) Would you consider doing Artlantis again in the future? Yes, if I found a different price point or different way to package my artwork: prints etc.

6) Anything else you would like to add? (Suggestions? Comments?) 10-7 is a REALLY LONG TIME. Would love to do a 2-7 timeframe next time. 2:30 seemed like the height of the people flow. Also, food vendors should stay open til the end. They closed up at 5, right before everybody got hungry for dinner.

We obviously love Artlantis and hope that we help draw some people for the event. Unfortunately I was out of town for it this year at a music festival in Arkansas but I heard the event was great. Thanks so much for putting it on and for allowing us to take part. We’d love to participate again in this or any other endeavors you may have.

1) What was great about Artlantis this year? smaller size of the festival made the art more visible and wasn’t too overwhelming for people; also loved meeting new artists

2) What could be improved upon for next year? The music in the beginning of the festival was a bit too harsh in my opinion for a Sat festival. The music was great as the day went on. Maybe focusing on music artists that are less metal?

3) Did you sell enough to pay for your booth rental? Yes!

4) Do you feel like the event was well attended? Yes!

5) Would you consider doing Artlantis again in the future? Absolutely

6) Anything else you would like to add? (Suggestions? Comments?) Love that the booth fee was reasonable and the same weekend as Summerfest. Would it be possible to have Food Trucks next year?
