• merch

    short for merchandise, this usually refers to anything branded with the festival / event likeness.   Most festivals will have a merch tent or trailer (see below) set up that feature t-shirts, hats, stickers, koozies, and other common items.   Can also refer to band merchandise, which either the event or the band sells (based on their contract); there could be a backend split on those profits, as well. merch-trailer
