If you’re a music aficionado or a diehard fan of some musical band, then you surely must have attended a gig or two. Acolytes and fans of celebrated singers, rock bands, and pop groups are so immersed in entertaining themselves they hardly ever notice the hard work that goes into organizing such events. Contrary to what you may think, making arrangements for a live gig or concert isn’t all that stressful. Abide by the ensuing tips to hold a musical soiree, and earn some cool bucks in the process.
- Figure out your audience
As an event manager, you’ll surely have the sagacity to realize that fans of Coldplay, ABBA or Meat Loaf will not queue up to see a performance by Bruce Springsteen, Phil Collins or John Denver. Aspects such as choice of venue, transport options, and affordability also needs to be factored in while choosing who all you want to be present.
- Planning is the key
Event management is all about meticulous planning; you should have an eye for detail and have everything planned out well in advance so that everything happens as per your plan.
- Pressing the appropriate helping hands into service
While zeroing down on a venue, you can choose from two options-either opting for a fully-equipped setting or going for a plain spot. With the latter, you’ll have to make arrangements for ticket sellers, caterers, security, lighting, staging and so on. Of course, you can select the former but it might turn out to be more expensive.
- Factor in insurance
Why take a chance by assuming that everything will go perfectly well. An unruly fan or short-circuit in the wiring might lead to your being slapped with a lawsuit costing millions. Isn’t it far more practicable for PLI (public liability insurance)?
- Promotion is Everything
It goes without saying that publicizing your event is the first step you need to take as an organizer. And internet has made it so convenient to canvass any event or occasion nowadays.
