Get mingling with the crowd go round & have a chat with people to get there views on the good sides of your event & what could maybe do with changing. Also if they know they've spoken to the promoter & find out your a safe guy then they'll only tell their mates so you should get them back the next month with a few extra people
My opening First Kontact night was pretty hectic, didn't have much of a chance to chat to people, which i know is wrong.....won't be like that on the second though.
I've been promoting for a couple of years so i know the basics, its now getting a little more serious with headliners etc.
Pulsar has developed and promoting is now easy, but it wasn't to begin with as there was no underlying dnb scene. Now First Kontact is a little bigger, proper club layout, 2 rooms, 3-400 cap....alot more serious than Pulsar.
