PLANNING THE MODERN TOUR - AND AVOIDING DISASTER
Thursday 29 September I Electric Circus, Edinburgh
Born To Be Wide returns on Thursday (29 September) with an interview with veteran promoter Dave McGeachan and a panel looking at the best approaches to touring.
The discussion will include a diverse range of perspectives providing practical tips, including how to avoid hideous disasters on the road.
McGeachan will joined on the panel by gig rep Katie Macdonald and tour manager Nick Green, who has toured the world with Crystal Fighters and Jungle. An additional speaker is expected to be confirmed prior to the event.
"Touring is an essential part of most artists' careers and so it is essential to get it right," says Born To Be Wide founder, Olaf Furniss. "We are looking forward to the insights of the panel and welcoming back Dave as a speaker, twelve years after he DJd at one of our very early nights."
Following the seminar, panelists will play a selection of their favourite music and hang out with the audience.
