Introducing DnB to a country OK...so basically I live in Cyprus, which is a beautiful place with easy women, but music wise we are limited. Trance, House, Rock & RnB are all catered for, but DnB nights are non existant. Admittedly the whole "rave" thing is new to the island, and in the short time it has been present public, acceptance has been excellent. Unfortunately the above is not really my thing. I am now seriously looking into the feasability of holding a regular dnb night, in hope that this superior form of music will take off with the locals. I myself do not produce, and my mixing skills are less than desirable, but business wise I know what I am doing. I have done extensive searching and found several people on the island that do make there own beats, and others who have been spinning in the privacy of there own home. So basically I think I have the right people in order to get this started. Again, these people are very keen to get something started as well, and seem to be backing me 100% on this venture Posts have been made on local club forums, and the public response seems to be promising. It kind of seems as if "if you build it, they will come". Whats now left is finding a owner that will give us the opportunity to hold a few "tester" nights. I have found some locations which are the right size with a decent audio setup, but I need to know how to approach the owners - ie: what to say, and how negotiations are done. So hopefully you more experienced people can give me some pointers. I have a lot of questions, but no idea how where to start. Things such as: ~Promoting: how? ~Negotiating: What do I ask for? Doing it for free at first, is this a bad idea? ~Do we ask for drink specials? ~Do we charge admission? ~Are we best of doing a mixed night at first, ie: half techno night / half dnb night? ~Better of in a bar first, or club? ~etc..... I should make myself clear, that I am not in this for the money, but rather for the love of music. DOn't get me wrong, If i can make money off of this as well, then bonus! Sorry for the long post, but I really am confused. Any help would be seriously appreciated!! Thanks in advance!!
