La festivalisation : approche du Festival d’Avignon par l’anthropologie de la communication

Abstract : Nowadays many towns have developed their own festival. A festival is an event that transforms the town and establishes an asset which goes towards distinguishing it from others. In this situation the analysis of a town cannot ignore the festival event and the relationship which links it to the community of the town. This relationship is examined from the notion of festivalisation and brings about the consideration of two points of view simultaneously, that of the inhabitants and that of the visitors. We thus analyse what happens around the inhabitants who live to the rhythm of the festival and around the visitors, both during the festival and throughout the rest of the year. Through these points of view called « endogenous » and « exogenous », festivalisation leads us to ask the question of « gathering » on an international level in the digital era, favouring the approach of the anthropology of communication. In this dissertation, we are analysing festivalisation based on the community of Avignon : the Avignon Festival, the inhabitants and Asian visitors, in comparison with the Festival of Edinburgh and the Scots.
