Beat Drifters was born of a simple, but constant fact: Booking unknown talent from afar is rarely done due to the cost of travel and lodging expenses.
But if an artist is already going to be in the area, Promoters are freed from a large portion of the financial burden of *taking a chance* on new talent for their nights. And in the process talent is more likely to get paid a fair booking fee.
The BeatDrifters goal is to nurture the diversity of musical acts people in each area of the world are able to see. And to help avoid the homogenization of talent pools that stems from current systems of large booking agencies and big money regional talent buyers.
