What Does a Tour Promoter Do? ft. Brittanie Delava
/

This week we have the amazing Brittanie to talk about being a Tour Promoter. We have talked about so many jobs that exist on tour – but there is a whole other group of jobs that make it possible to even have a tour. A Tour Promoter is one of those jobs. It is also a job I thought I knew a lot about, but in fact I didn’t know much about. Their job is very important when it comes to booking a tour, selecting venues – and then of course, promoting the tour! I took this opportunity to ask Brittianie all the questions I had on the topic – and she definitely answered all of them and more. Thanks again for joining me Brittanie – enjoy the episode everyone!

In this episode of the Don’t Shit On The Bus podcast we will learn:

• How a tour is routed
• The complexity of working with venues and other artists as a Tour Promoter
• What Brittanie did to build out her position at AEG
• How a Promoter works with an artist’s team to help grow that artist
