Whatever happened to Festival Records.

Festival had a truly spectacular decline and fall. When it finally died, it seems it was bought by Warner, who, being helmed by the Godlike genius Edgar Bronfmann, deal with back catalogue by sitting on it and never allowing its rerelease under any circumstances whatsoever, because that’ll definitely beat the MP3-spreading hordes on their home turf. This is why you can’t get hold of a damn thing released by Mushroom or Festival ever, except what Michael Gudinski took with him to Liberation.
