Welcome to the latest edition of Six Questions With..., a short and sharp interview with a live music figure. Email email@example.com if you would like to take part or put someone forward for inclusion.
This week's Q&A is with Tom Paine of Team Love, organiser of Bristol festival Love Saves The Day.
What was your first job in music?
Difficult to say. I was working in a fairly infamous Bristol venue known as the Arc Bar back when I was a student - that was my first introduction to the Bristol music scene - and certainly the dance music here in the city, but strictly speaking all I was doing was pulling pints. My first real bona fide job in the 'industry' would have been as a tea boy in the production office of the Dance Village at Glastonbury. I did a lot of laminating that year - but I totally fell in love with working behind the scenes at a festival...
How long have you been in your current role?
We (my partner in crime Dave and I) were trying to work this out the other day. Strictly speaking, we think Team Love began in 2008 - again at Glastonbury - but both of us were working other jobs still which took up most of our time. I was about to start working with a BMX Park called Motion and turning it into a club, whilst Dave was running Futureboogie. I guess it all became a little bit more full time and professional when we launched Love Saves The Day in 2012.
