    Default tips for becoming a promoter/some questions/article idea?

    i may be moving back to Austin, TX and as far as i know there isnt a whole lot going on there for my specific 'scene.' Houston has a great group of promoters (Dancemofodance--GRRRL Parts djs) that bring in big name dj's just about every week.

    Austin is a huge college town (University of Texas is the 7th largest...i think lol) so with the right promotion, any night there would be a huge success. i have connections/contacts in Austin (i lived there for a few years and began djing there =D), so getting people there shouldnt be a problem.

    are there any tips/things i should know before even attempting this? usual cost of artists? riders? how do you go about getting a venue to OK this?

    any promoters here *cough Miyuru cough* that could point me in the right direction

    -----------------

    this might make a great article for DJTT! promoting is pretty relevant to djs; most promoters DJ a bit, right? hmmm...maybe i could interview some promoters..?

    Would love to hear about this as well. I've been a long time show goer, stepping into the realm of DJing, but would love to learn the ropes about promoting.
