Fan Clubs/VIP Packages: Old School or Great Fan Experience?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Years ago, every act had a fan club and offered “VIP packages” to fans for an increased cost. These fan clubs collected important fan data, and these acts knew a great deal about their spur fans and what they wanted. Today, few acts have fan clubs. They rely on third-party companies to handle their fans and their email lists. These acts are not taking advantage of the fans’ desire for a greater experience — an experience for which they are willing to pay top dollar. We will discuss the pros and cons to both artist and fan and the replacement of simple things like early tickets and T-shirts to sitting on stage or fly-aways.
