Has our beloved Doof scene changed for better or for worse?
Every year the costs associated with organising events go up, profit margins shrink, red tape and bureaucracy gets harder to navigate, competition increases and event cancellations seem more frequent than ever. There are few if any sources of revenue outside of ticket sales resulting in a severe lack of working capital. Securing financial sponsorships with values aligned brands is near impossible and almost every event seems to be operating at a loss. Any profit just ends up paying off debt from previous events. Meanwhile, ticket prices have reached the threshold of what most Doofers can afford, yet still lack enough profit margin to enable promoters to innovate or pay artists their true worth. Furthermore, the increasing use of GHB and Ice combined with negative and often misleading media attention continues to damage the public perception of our culture.
Compounding the overwhelming challenges and risks of planning events is the fact that many crews have no formal event management qualifications, business, accounting or marketing expertise. Someone was inspired one day, shared their grand vision for a new kind of party, inspired others, who pooled their cash, volunteered time/equipment and just winged it and figured things out as they went. All the while oblivious to the fact they were, in essence, starting a business.
It can be said that the health of our scene rests solely on the shoulders of event organisers. Many of whom have pure intentions, great ideas, grand visions but lack the experience and skills necessary to foster an economically viable industry ecosystem.
Coming together as a community to co-create a healthier and more professional Doof scene.
