You've got the same loyal 20 fans from 3 years ago. Maybe half of them are friends and 80% of them come out to your shows on a weekly basis. Until, they don't. Maybe another show is competing, maybe they are out of town for the week or have family plans and suddenly your pull is less than the rest of the artists on the line up. Your excuse, "They all went to this other party.” or “ Half of them are out of town to EDC."

EDM stands for electronic dance music. The acronym encompasses several percussive music genres, primarily produced with techniques used in disco, techno, trance, and house music. These genres originally became popular in the nightlife, party and club scene during the late 1980s, and into the early 90s. Dance music saw an increase in popularity when raving, club culture, and warehouse parties began to emerge.
