Eventbrite launches Generation DIY project to showcase young promoters

Ticketing and event technology platform Eventbrite has launched a new five-part series of short films in celebration of pioneering young event creators. 

Generation DIY showcases the new wave of independent promoters aged 25 and under who are ushering in a new era for nightlife.

Eventbrite travelled up and down the UK in search of the disruptors, pioneers and creators putting on extraordinary events in London, Bristol, Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester. 

Featured within the five films are:

  • Comedians, artists, theatre directors, spoken word artists, DJ collectives, foodies, philanthropists, club night promoters, record label owners and art curators 
  • The female collectives making dancefloors a safer, more inclusive space
  • The rise of conscious clubbing: the activists using events to power social revolution
  • The promoters putting Glasgow’s nascent grime scene on the map
  • The frontrunners of the UK’s underground LGBT party scene
  • The artivists making art & theatre accessible to marginalised and underrepresented communities

Those showcased include Manchester promoters B.L.O.O.M and BoyGirl, David Burch of event company Ad Hoc, Bristol rapper and event organiser Craft-D, Glasgow's Forij Collective, Birmingham songwriter Namiwa Jazz and London's Kaiya Milan, CEO of music management firm and label, Off Balance.

The London, Bristol and Glasgow films are out now, with the Birmingham production to be released on June 27 and Manchester on July 4. Check out the trailers below.
