Hi folks. I am new here! Just found this link through good old Facebook, a place I sit at for about 12 hours a day!
I'm Jay and I run my own festival called Breaking Bands Festival. Its small and supports independent rock and metal bands with that as its main focus. There's plenty of bigger events but not enough solid smaller ones for bands to get their foot in the door.
I also run Hard Rock Hell Radio, part of the Hard Rock Hell brand run by Chic Festivals. My station was formally TBFM Online, where I met @Jon who has already introduced himself as the man who kicked Simon Cowell's backside a few years ago. Its how we met and Jon works for the station too!
I have just taken a punt this year with Eventbrite as our official ticket supplier. Our fans always wanted printed tickets but after 3 years we are growing and the need to control everything better meant getting a decent ticket company on board. So far so good!
I am definitely amatuer in the world of festivals in general but my enthusiasm for the music scene, and my ambition is driving the festival forward. Always happy to take on advice as well as give it when needed.
Time for me to take a wonder now around this community and see what's about!
