    LOL how about come up with your own headliners or at least be honest about your intentions of this thread and say "Please give suggestions of who we can afford for our next event"

    Also If your looking at KENNY KEN, DEVIOUS D, RUFF STUFF and ASHATACK

    You almost certainly won't be able to afford Zero T or Total Sci I wouldn't have thought, just some friendly advice on that one

    Make sure to include a fine in the contract if he doesn´t show up like the last two times in germany.

    Well I didn´t care but its still..very unprofessional to say the least. Afaik on the one occasion he did fly and then stay in the hotel..how old is he? 12?
    Whatever, didn´t he want to retire anyway? Farewell.

    I mentioned zero t just cos I saw him later that night at corsica studios and he was really good. He can't be all that expensive cos it isn't an all that big place and it was free to get in to... unless maybe he is close with the promoters and was doing it cheap for them

    I'm not in it for the money mate.....If i was i'd have left years ago. Funny thing is i also co-promote this event called Liquid Bass which is put on once a year to raise money for diabetes UK and we take a lot of money on them....So i could make money from the events if i wanted to but it does mean a lot of extra work.....Years ago i put on jungle events and we made a nice sum on each one we did but it did involve a lot of leg work, late nights, ruunning around and money invested up-front......I got a family now so i couldnt find the time to juggle the extra work and effort needed to put on events that actually return a profit.

    I know a lot of promoters with similar sized events to mine and not many walk away with a profit. The last paid event we did was in a place called Bicester, oxfordshire and it was on that day when we had the really bad snow....It actually started to snow when i started driving up to oxfordshire from london and time i got there it was horrendous.
    needless to say only about 20 people turned up apart from the djs....luckily enough it was the only event we'd done with no headliner.....So we ended up having to pay venue fee, security and i dont know if you know but a lot of clubs have bar limit policy.....for example, you need to clear say 1500 quid behind the bar of you pay the difference....i think they took 200 odd pound that day so we should have handed over 1300.....But lucky for us the venue owner scraped it due tot he weather.

    as for total science.....they are friends with one of my co-promotors......we still paid them a healthy fee, but jeeeesuuussssss...it was worth every penny...what a set...and a privilege to be able to stand behind the set and watch them rinse it out....nice chaps too.
