How To Stage A Successful Electronic Dance Music Event. The following is a blog about how to plan events for EDM.
To start, you need to decide what type of event you are going to throw, whether it be a party or concert. You will have to get a venue, which can also include your own house or garage; make sure there is plenty of room for everyone. Once you have chosen the venue, then comes time to choose a date and time that works best for everyone involved; this includes finding DJs who will play at your event as well!
When this is done and everything has been booked, you’ll want to start promoting your event with flyers around town or via social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter so people know about it before hand – this way they can tell their friends too!
Once the night arrives all that’s left now is setting up everything beforehand and making sure things run smoothly during the show itself (i.e., sound checks, lighting tests etc.) – but don’t forget about advertising afterwards either!
As the Electronic Dance Music scene continues to grow and thrive, more and more people are turning to EDM events as a way to have fun, make money, and be a part of the industry. However, knowing how to put on a successful show is not always easy, and there are a few things that you should know before you begin.
The first thing that you need to do is decide who your event is for. Is it going to be for a younger crowd? Or is it going to be for an older crowd? This will help you determine what type of music you want to play, and also what type of atmosphere that you want your event to have.
Once you have decided who your event is for, then you can begin planning your event. The easiest way to plan an EDM event is by using an online planner, such as Eventbrite or Fiverr. These services will allow you to book venues and artists, as well as venues and artists that are in demand. You can also find bands and DJs by searching on the web.
Once you have booked the venue and artists that you want, then it’s time to start planning your event. The best way to plan an EDM event is by creating a schedule that has all of
I have been a fan of electronic dance music since the mid 1990’s. I began going to raves when I was 18 and attended events all across the country. I have always had a passion for dance music, especially house and techno, but going to events week after week, month after month, year after year began to wear on me. The same DJs spinning the same tunes at the same clubs with the same crowds became monotonous, and then I started to lose interest in going out altogether.
In January 2010 I decided to put my knowledge about electronic dance music, gained from years of experience as a fan, to use by getting involved in planning EDM events. After receiving my Bachelors Degree from Florida State University in May 2010 I moved back home to Gainesville and immediately began looking for work. I found employment at a local marketing agency where one of my duties was to plan an event for an EDM client. The event was scheduled for June 5th at Level Nightclub, which is where I met Roman Zdanowski (DJ Eon). He played an awesome set that night and he mentioned that he was throwing his own events under the name “Dirtybird Entertainment.” He said that if we ever wanted to throw an event together we should contact
For the past several years we’ve produced a number of Electronic Dance Music (EDM) events in our hometown of San Francisco. From small, one-off parties to large festivals, we’ve learned a lot about how to put on successful events in the EDM scene.
This is a blog focused on the business of putting on an event. It will cover everything from getting your first venue to planning after-parties. We’ll give you the tricks and techniques that we used to make our events successful, and hopefully help you avoid some of the mistakes that we made along the way.
We do not discuss music production or DJing.
Electronic dance music is a genre of music that is played at nightclubs and music festivals. It is a booming industry attracting millions of people each year.
Planning an electronic dance event can be challenging, especially if you have never done it before. However, with some planning and preparation it can be made easier.
Here are the steps to follow when planning an electronic dance music event:
Step 1: Choose your venue
You need to decide where the event will be held. This decision will depend on the type of event you are planning, as well as how many people you expect to attend. If the venue is outdoors then it’s important that there are no obstacles in front of or behind the entrance/exit doors so guests don’t get stuck trying to leave or enter during peak times. The location should also be secure from intruders and other dangers such as fires or floods so everyone stays safe for long periods of time without having to worry about their safety being compromised by external factors which could cause harm to themselves or others around them.”
The very first step in planning an event is to figure out what your goals are. Are you trying to put on a big show and make money? Or are you looking to have a smaller, local event and break even? Knowing this will help dictate the locations, the acts, and the promotion strategy.
The next step is to pick a location. This can vary drastically depending on the size of your event. If it’s small, consider getting a permit to have it at a park or beach. If you’re having an outdoor show, make sure there is ample shade and water for attendees. If you’re having an indoor event, consider renting a warehouse or convention center. Pick somewhere that is relatively central so as many people can get there easily as possible. Make sure that there is plenty of parking, especially if it is outdoors!
If you plan on having food vendors at your event, make sure everything is approved by the proper authorities and that everyone has insurance and permits. If someone gets sick from eating the food at your event (this happens more than you think), you can be held liable!
I have had the pleasure of being a part of some amazing events in the last few years. In my first year at university I was involved in running an event for 1,500 people. I have also been to many events for hundreds and thousands of people.
The thing that has always stood out to me is the lack of information on how to properly plan an event. There are many guides on how to be a promoter, but none on how to actually organise one.
I hope this guide helps you with planning your next event. It will only cover the basics, and it will not go into depth about any one topic. So if you want more information on a specific topic, comment below and I’ll be happy to write more about it.
