Music promoters have one of the most crucial jobs in the music industry, marketing or promoting artists, concerts, gigs, and/or festivals.

It’s also a great job to have in the music industry, for more reason than one.

First Jobs

Managers, event producers, agents: Many people’s first job in the industry was actually promoting. Oftentimes when people begin as a promoter, they can work their way up into their dream job in music industry. Promoting for shows, often only in exchange for a ticket or some free merch, shows your dedication as a music fan first; it also looks great on a resume.


Making your way into the music industry can be cut throat and very hard to break into as it’s one of the most competitive industries in the world.. Joining a street team can help you get your foot in the door and build connections with people in the music business, as well as show them they can trust you to help on a starting level.

Gets you familiar with venues in your area

Being a promoter will take you places all around your city, state, or even country. It will open your world to new venues and places you will more than likely fall in love with. You may also have the chance to mingle with venue staff, who could be your next boss.

Teaches you to self-manage and work as a team

Promoting improves your work ethic and social skills by requiring you to communicate and work well with others. You’re partially in charge for helping shows and artists succeed; they’re counting on you to put up your posters and send invites. You’ll also get an inside look at how each clog on the music industry wheel must work together to make events succeed — or not.
