|Up until early 2019, we built working relationships with restaurants, wine farms, function venues and festival organizers who have an interest in live music and entertainment. We helped conceptualize interesting live music events for these businesses and managed entertainment programs for them. In certain instances, we also assisted with sponsorship negotiations for these venues to enable them to pay artists what they are worth and to reduce financial risk for venue owners.
We like to create opportunity for a range of musicians and bands by inviting them to perform at our clients’ venues and events. Due to COVID this side of the business came to a sad halt in 2020 and venues are apprehensive to book shows in the early part of 2021 due to the second COVID wave we now have in South Africa. It is therefor that we decided to bring this service to a halt for now. We will revisit again in June 2021.
A new addition to our services included tour bookings and management in the Western Cape. Being knowledgeable of the live music circuit in the Western Cape, we book and manage visiting artists tour(s) in the Western Cape / assist in booking filler gigs for their already existing tours. With so many cancellations in 2020, we are apprehensive to book any tours for traveling artists in 2021. We will be revisiting in August 2021 and hope to start booking tours for traveling musicians for 2022 again! Do stay intouch. To inquire about booking rates please contact Iluminar Productions.
We look forward to announcing some pretty cool musicians who we will be working with in 2022 and who are super excited to visit our beautiful province. This includes some international artists as well. So do stay in touch with us and know that we will be back with a vengeance.
