Festival Records

Profile:
Also appears as "Festival" only.
PLEASE NOTE: This label should only be used for releases on the Festival Records label, ie, displaying the Festival Records logo. For releases on international labels (eg. Island Records, A&M Records, etc.) that were distributed by either Festival Records Pty. Ltd. or Festival Records (NZ) Ltd., please use the appropriate label pages, not this one.

Festival Records was formed in Australia in 1952, and operated throughout Australia and New Zealand, albeit as different companies (indicated above). It also became a primary record distribution company representing overseas labels such as Atlantic, Chrysalis, Island, A&M Records, and Virgin, although it did not always represent every label in both territories. In effect it created de-facto joint venture partnerships with many of the labels it represented and licensed labels rather than acts.

Festival also distributed many independent Australasian labels over the years.

In 1999 Rupert Murdoch's Newscorp bought out its partners in NZ and amalgamated Festival Records (NZ) Ltd, Festival Records Pty Ltd, Mushroom Records Pty Ltd and Mushroom Distribution Services (MDS) as Festival Mushroom Records.

In 2012 the new owners, Warner Music Group, revived Festival Records as a reissue label.

For the "Festival" location where such things as the tags 'Recorded At' or 'Mastered At' apply either for recordings on this label or for recordings that credit either of the respective Festival companies (Festival Records Pty. Ltd or Festival Records (NZ) Ltd.), please use Festival Studios. For publishing credits ("Published By"), please use Festival Music Publishing.
