Small venues provide audiences with unrivaled intimate experiences. These venues are a critical part of the touring ecosystem. Programming venues with less than 500 seats also creates unique challenges. Thin profit margins and competition for discretionary income makes programming a small venue a very risky business. This panel will focus on the decision making process, maximizing the audience experience, and managing the risks of programming small venues.
