Sharing a spotlight on those that are behind the spotlight, we spoke with Brighton-based music promoter and artist manager Josh Golsby, the founder and chief of dreeem.
What is dreeem?
dreeem is a Gig Promotion and Artist Management company. We are based in Brighton but put on shows nationally!
Where did your passion for live music stem from?
Growing up, me and my dad used to help out backstage at Middleton Music Festival in Oxfordshire. Being around that atmosphere and the musicians and the instruments really made me fall in love with events. There are some cracking photos of me in hi-vis crew tees when I was about 12 😂
What can artists & audiences expect from a dreeem gig?
dreeem lineups are always stacked with sick bands. Audiences can expect to find a new favourite act and they can expect to be bombarded with memes before the show
What’s been your most memorable show to date?
The most memorable show has to be our most recent show. It was the first dreeem gig since Covid and Hypsoline, JCK and Harry Beer sold out The Hope and Ruin. It was a really special night.
If you had to pick one, who’s your favourite artist you’ve worked with so far and why?
All the artists we’ve worked with have been so good! Bands like Milo Gore and Crystal Tides have returned for a few amazing dreeem shows, but one of favourite bands I’ve worked with is JCK. Jack, H and Jake are the best guys and always bring the best energy to everything they do. They’re truly ones to watch, they write some serious bangers.
What advice would you give to bands/artists who are just starting out doing live shows?
Network, set targets, rehearse together regularly. And get in touch with us to sort a super sick show 😉
