Our third Fan Club Spotlight is dedicated to a club that goes above and beyond to show their support of and admiration for the super talented guys of B.A.P! Lyndsay of ForeverBAPsBABYz (#FBB) was so excited to share the events that #FBB has done for B.A.P, especially as they were just in the states for the US leg of their Live On Earth 2016 World Tour! :D On a personal note, we have had the pleasure of seeing B.A.P perform live and cannot stress how amazing they are on stage. We are happy that fanclub's like #FBB are there to show the members just how much they are appreciated not just in Korea but all over the world. :)
Our second Fan Club Spotlight is dedicated to a club formed to support the adorable guys of SHINee! We spoke with Jenny of SHINee USA to find out more about what she loves about SHINee, what events SHINee USA has done to show their support oceans away from Korea and of course get links to their social media so YOU can join and follow SHINee USA in hopefully bringing the group back stateside! :D
If you just got hired to promote a concert, congratulations! We understand how certain job titles and descriptions can be confusing, especially if you are new to working in the music industry. Promoting a concert is overwhelming for many first timers, especially if you are not prepared. Below is a guide of who's who in the concert industry. Key reps for artists that you can use as a reference point when you are trying to promote a concert:
Being a concert promoter is a major responsibility since you're working for a musical (or perhaps speaking) artist to take care of practically everything. It's not far removed from being a movie producer who has to deal with everything from financing on up to being on the set during production.
For a three to five-month concert planning timeline, you'll take care of the things the artist has no time to do. These aspects are some of the most taxing aspects to living on the road. Nevertheless, with your outlining and know-how, you'll make this period of time more enjoyable for everyone.
As you contemplate a career in music, you're maybe asking yourself, "How do you become a concert promoter?" after realizing how significant and popular this job is. It's noted as being one of the most desired careers in music, despite being nearly as demanding as a musical artist or producer. While concert promoters help arrange concerts for artists, the details involved are tremendous.
Much like a producer of music or movies, the promoter has to hustle to raise money for a concert tour. Sometimes they use their own money, or find others who share in the profits.
