What Is Festival Tycoon?

Festival Tycoon is quite literally what it says on the tin. Players will be tasked with running, managing and even building their own festival grounds. Furthermore, you’ll have to book bands sign deals, fix toilets and experience the hardships of running a day to day festival venue. All of this is brought to players in a colourful voxel style. Here is some of what you can expect in Festival Tycoon:

  • Design the ultimate festival using a plethora of decorations, tents, stages and even portaloos
  • Book musicians and talent to put on a truly special show
  • Gain sponsors and sell tickets to keep the money rolling in
  • Ensure your guests are eternally satsified while they’re there
  • Adapt to any situation, however difficult, and make snap decisions on the fly
  • Even more features to come
