Sun, sand and NFT tickets: here are the DAO music festivals

On a sun-drenched platform, above sparkling water and outdoors, 5,000 music lovers will soon decipher at the Croatian Circus Maximus Music Festival. The beautiful surroundings of Zrce Beach on Pag Island are admired for their soundtrack of electronic beats with 360-degree views of the Adriatic Sea.

But this year, while the Festival remains a star player, it’s a party of honour—and this Circus Maximus, organisers hope this will pave the way to a decentralised future,” bringing parties back into people’s hands and the widespread adoption of the new ticketing process to do so. 

Two new technologies, Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (Daos) and unalterable tokens (NFTS), hope that the core will be the “party”, the organization of the festival, and that other festivals will follow.

Circus Maximus wants to be the world’s first DAO Music Festival. This means the rules for the organization will be set by DAO members and codified in smart contracts, which will also include the festival’s budget. The community, music fans, Festival venue, performers will vote to decide on budget allocation, future direction and more. 

“The idea is that Dao helps develop new solutions and provides support to underfunded and often underdeveloped festivals and events that the DAO community considers most valuable,” said Josipa Zijić, Chief Media Officer of Noa Group festival organizers, via email.  

The titles of Circus Maximus 2021 are also Tweekaz, Regard, Brennan Hart, Imanbeck and Harris and Ford. Picture: The Great Circus
Daos can be organized around any common purpose or interest. Most focus on development or finance, such as venture capital funds, independent investors can pool their funds and vote on which projects to invest in. 

Circus Maximus is now exploring how a music festival can be organised
