18 Brutally Honest Confessions From A Club Promoter
It's not as glamorous as you think.
All of our friends have muted us on social media.
Which is kinda fair, because we do spend a lot of time coercing our friends to come along to quiet nights.
And then we can't hang out with them because we're too busy.
We're not all glamorous party animals who do heaps of cocaine all the time.
But we do know when you've taken drugs.
We sometimes have to work from 10am-5am.
Which means we always look like crap.
During the daytime, our offices are depressing af.
Our after party = the clean up.
Dealing with ridiculous rider requests from DJs is as annoying as you'd imagine.
And picking up and dropping off artists from the airport makes for a lot of awkward car journeys.
That said, dining with DJs and musicians is usually pretty spectacular.
Our job is one of the few where we are applauded if we show up hungover.
People forget that there is a person behind the club mailouts and text outs.
We can't always get our pals in for free when a show is sold out.
When we hear that people had a good time at our night, we feel incredibly proud.
And deep down, we know we have the best job because we get paid to listen to amazing music everyday.
We'd just like an extra day in the week to recover.
