What Does A Production Coordinator Do On Tour? ft. Julie Galetar (Shawn Mendes, Madonna, Sting)

Julie Galetar is one of the best production coordinators out there on the road, and the client list proves it. Julie has worked for Shawn Mendes, Sting, Paul Simon, and Madonna. We really enjoyed just listening when it came to Julie. She had some much information that we didn’t even know we needed to know. That is what makes her so good at her job. A production coordinator is a glue that holds a tour together. We hope you enjoy everything Julie has to say as much as we did!

  • Julie’s journey to success in the touring world
  • A day in the life of a production coordinator on the road
  • The importance of playing to your skillset
  • Tips for being a successful production coordinator
