And you may ask yourself: How did I get here?

Everyone who’s ever gone to a live show knows that to succeed as a musician, you need a strong personality. What fewer people know is that the folks actually running the show — that is to say the talent buyers, the venue managers, the booking agents, the social media mavens, and so on — are a cast of characters all their own.

Eventbrite Music knows this, and so we turned the camera on some of our creators, the folks behind the scenes, to learn more about what makes them tick — and why they get up in the morning. We’re proud to introduce “Ask The Industry,” a four-part video series featuring thoughts and ruminations from across the music industry. In this first episode, we learn how they ended up greasing the wheels of the music business for a living, and why they’re still at it — even decades later.
