About the Podcast

Behind the scene stories of the world's greatest live events.

You will go behind the stage of the best music festivals, the kitchen of celebrity chef tastings or the studio door to hear the stories of passion and inspiration that launched some of the world’s best festivals.

Through FestivalPass Stories (FPS) you can experience ‘life lived live’ and hear the ‘why’ behind your favorite music, film, food, theater and sports events.

Each week, FPS Host Pat Tully will bring his two decades of live event hosting experience to deliver a new story from a festival founder or the talent that drives event lovers, like you.
