hey new friends!
what a crazy weekend it was.
I was stage managing at Queenscliff Music Festival and I am 100% exhausted!
I didn’t sleep much, went without a shower, looked after some amazing bands and worked my ass off!
i feel i had the best stag at the festival, King Cannons, Kingswood, King Gizzard and The Lizard Wizard just to mention a few!
call me crazy but I get more satisfaction working at a festival than i do going as a punter
And again I have a music business vs tv dilemma.
It doesn’t happen often but sometimes I have to chose which is more important I always think tv but then look at my bank and music business is the one that pays
Melbourne there’s the north vs south side stigma
With the way record sales are bands are flogging themselves on tours with means we don’t have to wait or need to see a band, they’ll be back next month anyway.
With the internet we’re exposed to more bands > more bands can tour/ radio play etc
With internet we don’t have to go out to hear a band/ watch them
So many festivals people can’t afford it all
Nothing like a band announcing their playing your venue without the venue even getting contracts.
Story of my week!
