Up and coming artist are familiar with the struggle there is to booking a gig. No one knows who you are until they hear you. How can I be heard if I can’t book a show? Or if I book a show why is it costing me more than I’m making. This started the concept Flocking Loud a local music fest making it’s debut this summer.
“…it started after I sold my tickets at my last SOBs show… I made them 3 racks and they paid me $300 lol. But it just didnt make sense to me”
Flocking Loud is a concert series that gives paid opportunities to artists that are hungry to be heard and know they can bring a crowd. The promotion alone brings great energy and high volume sales in support of the artist and the movement as well.
Native New Yorker, Flo Flocko created the event as an artist himself who once needed a platform to express his talent and make money off of it. In this business, people take advantage of hungry artist and it isn’t always fair to them. Flo has made it simple for artist to sell their own tickets for the event so their fans can come out and support them and they will get paid. Not only will there be a wide variety of artist performing, but food, drinks, hookah and hosts of activities for all guest to make their pennies worth.
There is also an open mic series in prelude of the event called “A Flocking Open Mic” giving artists a chance to compete for a spot on the bill as well as a photoshoot for marketing purposes.
Flocking Loud is an event you don’t want to miss! Mark your calendars for August 23 and purchase tickets here. Stay up to date with line up announcements and promotions via Instagram @flockingloudnyc
