Whether you’re planning a gig down the local, or a 20,000 capacity festival, you’ve got to have a handle on event planning fundamentals.
This Coffs Harbour instalment of SOUND ADVICE welcomes Ben Lewis (Director, Gig Big) as he lays out these fundamentals and gives you advice on how to make sure you maximise your event’s potential. This session will cover the spectrum from planning, funding, logistics and marketing, to actually staging the event.
Hosted by your Regional Music Officer for the Mid North Coast Ali Buckley, this event is free with registration and will conclude with a casual networking and Q&A session.
