About Chris

Chris Taylor, 34, is one of the UK’s most passionate advocates of international travel and tourism through the love of music and live events.

Chris, who lives in Fareham, Hampshire, spent most of his 20s travelling to UK and international music festivals, averaging at least one a year for a decade – and in one year attending three festivals nearly back-to-back.

Chris launched Festival Insider in March 2018 as Founder and Editor In Chief. It currently boasts hundreds of European music festival listings. Chris aspires for festival-insider.com to become the number one destination for advice on international festival travel and tourism – a Trip Advisor for festivals – powered by the website’s community of Festival Insiders.

Chris aims to expand the Festival Insider network internationally, relying on the knowledge and passion of the festival and tourist community to contribute towards the expansion of the site, as well as working alongside national, regional and local tourist boards to promote their country to foreign festival tourists.

When Chris isn’t attending festivals in the summer months, he enjoys spending time with his wife and daughter. Chris works as a Communications and PR professional by day in the city of Portsmouth, UK.
