You Really Had To Be There!

Should live-streamed gigs be recorded and made available afterwards? In this blog, I touch on the importance of how a unique experience in time is more valuable to the audience and the artist if it is kept in the moment.

In today’s blog, I briefly describe three real-life ticketed virtual events that we have going on at Midnight Mango. Each one follows a different model. Each one is viable and will make an income for the artist, promoter, venue and agent.

I Like Busking But…

Busker

I like busking, but throwing up another front room performance with a digital tip jar is digital busking and there is only so much busking I can take before it becomes tiresome. In this article I propose small venues are going to need to work in both the physical and the digital space to survive.

I haven’t felt like this since I was a promoter!

In this blog post I briefly chart Midnight Mango’s journey from promoter to agency. I reflect on how the current coronavirus pandemic reminds me of the financial volatility of being a promoter. If nothing else, it’s healthy to be reminded of that!

In this blog post, I briefly discuss the crazy events leading up to lock-down and how we, at Midnight Mango, reacted as booking agents in the live music industry.

If it weren’t for Joe Strummer!

Joe Strummer moved to a village near my home town of Bridgwater, Somerset in the early 2000s. I didn’t know it then, but it was to have a profound effect on the direction of my life from then on.

Our Corona Virus Promise

This is an open letter to all festival programmers, venue owners and promoters who we work with. In it, I express solidarity in these desperate times and outline where we can help.
