    Anybody got any pointers and or advice for me?

    Most things are sorted, we got the venue, speakers/system (hopefully), flyers and most artists done. Anything else I may need advice on?

    I know I need to sort out tickets, some sorta security, etc...

    Peace

    !st thing is promotion is fuckin hard work.. flyering outside clubs ( and getting abuse etc, ) fly posting ( and possibly having to take down all teh posters you fly posted to avoid massive fine) on forums ...takes a lot of time.

    Also if you want a full house, best bet is a name DJ/MC.....any non name DJ playing needs to muck in on teh flyer etc, but also if they don't sell say 30 tickets, then they loose their slot..sound harsh ? Maybe, but it works.
