Hey All, I am new here, so please excuse me if I come off as inexperienced to the forum. In a nutshell, here is my plan- I am planning to launch an EDM (Electronic dance music) concert tour next year and I am still in the planning process. I am very skilled in the technical and event production background, and have worked/organized a handful of events before. I will need a financial backer to help me get this tour off the ground, but I have yet to meet with or even search for one. I feel the way I am planning this tour is putting the cart before the horse... Tell me what you think- I have already found (And working with) my marketing team, production crew members, tour manager, performance agencies, secondary production companies,lawyers, security firms, many event locations, and pre-tour promotional event locations. We plan to only host a few promotional(or budget building) events prior to the tour. I plan to fund the promotional events myself. These events alone have the potential to bring in 275% of the initial investment (Per event) I chose to do these events for a number of reasons, but my main reason is to be able to present the numbers from this event to a potential investor (To further assure him/her that we are able to turn a profit) Should I have found my main funding first before going this far? Where would be a good place to find an investor to support this? With the little information I provided, do you have any suggestions to how I should move forward? Please note: I have never worked with any sort of investor before. So if there is something you would recommend.. please feel free to let me know!
