A pair of booking agents lift the veil on their profession.
You're probably aware that your favorite producers and DJs aren't alone in managing the nitty-gritty of their careers. Much of what these folks working behind the scenes do, though, is likely a mystery to many beyond the tight circle of agents and managers who work in it. It's in that spirit that we invited Alma Poric and Alexandra Lindblad by our Berlin office recently. They're partners in Backroom Entertainment, an agency that handles the likes of Dixon, Monolake, Tim Sweeney and Metro Area. Their roster alone would give us plenty to speak about, but we instead kept the focus on the agents themselves: what they do, how they do it and how all of that has evolved over the course of the agency's nearly 20 years in the business.
