CID Entertainment

As Founder and CEO of CID Entertainment, Dan Berkowitz oversees the creation and execution of “enhanced experiences” travel packages, VIP ticketing packages and transportation for a wide array of major live events. Berkowitz and his team have developed immersive, amenity-stuffed audience experiences for fan-friendly touring acts like Pearl Jam, George Strait, Metallica, Luke Bryan, and Skrillex, as well as North America’s most celebrated music festivals, including Coachella, Bonnaroo, Hangout Music Fest, Lollapalooza, New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Stagecoach. Berkowitz works closely with partners like AEG/Goldenvoice, Live Nation, and C3 to ensure the best treatment of the fans who depend on his company’s service to get maximum enjoyment out of a show. Berkowitz’s experience extends into kid-friendly tours based on TV shows like Nickelodeon’s “Yo Gabba Gabba!” and Nick Jr.’s “The Fresh Beat Band,” sporting VIP packages for teams such as the Federación Mexicana de Fútbol and the Road to Brazil tournament, and even special events such as “An Evening with Al Pacino,” a night of storytelling and audience Q&A with cinema’s living legend. Drawn to the communal spirit of acts like the Grateful Dead and Phish at an early age, Berkowitz cut his teeth in the music business as Tour Manager for The Disco Biscuits. He got his first taste of transportation, hotel and VIP ticket packaging putting together premium services for fans of the jam band. His festival experience began with Camp Bisco, The Disco Biscuits’ curated event that now boasts headliners like Skrillex and Bassnectar. Berkowitz’s insights, experience and leadership skills further developed while he was working at the legendary Electric Factory venue in Philadelphia, the same city both he and CID now call home.
