Promo Spotlight: Taking a hard look into Mutiny Music Collective’s new socially distanced pod experience, Singularity 2021 [INTERVIEW]
Given how music opens the connection to the soul, artists and their fanbases must represent the body. Promotional companies, then, are the heartbeat of the music industry. These are the local street teams, the social media hustlers, the business negotiators, the backstage bookers, and talent scouters — all working tirelessly at their tiers with management teams, venues, press, and so on to bring fans their favorite music. However, promotional companies often get overlooked by music goers, outshined by big names and line-ups. They don’t much care for the spotlight though, and they definitely don’t do it for the money. They do it all for the love of music.
That’s why CE is proud to present our Promo Spotlight series, where we scour the United States for local promotional companies to shine a light on the people working behind the scenes of music. They are, for all intents and purposes, music’s beating life force.
With so many live events being announced lately, it’s interesting to see the varied ways organizers are going about instituting precautionary health measures to foster an environment towards COVID-safety. Curious over the specifics of these measures, CE caught up with Mutiny Music Collective‘s co-founder, Daniel Krotz, to discuss how he’s creating a unique experience for artists and fans through their next event, Singularity: A Socially Distanced Pod Experience.
After successfully and safely producing the Roll ’N Rave pod experience last fall, Mutiny Music Collective will return to their home at Grantsville’s Utah Motorsports Campus for Singularity. Co-presented by SoEpic, the three-day pod event will kick off on Friday, April 30, and run through Sunday, May 2.
Mutiny Music Collective is teaming up with global party brand Space Yacht to host night one of the event, helmed by a special back-to-back set from JOYRYDE and Ghastly together as GHOST RYDR. Friday will also feature performances from Dr. Fresch, Noizu, BIJOU, BlackGummy, Schade, and Maddy O’Neal. Saturday and Sunday will bring bass heavy-hitters to the stage including 12th Planet, NGHTMRE, PEEKABOO, HABSTRAKT, WHIPPED CREAM, Dion Timmer, and more.
Singularity follows Mutiny Music Collective’s first-ever pod experience, Roll ’N Rave, which successfully took place last fall with zero reported COVID-19 cases following the show. At the time, Roll ’N Rave was the largest drive-in in the country, and Mutiny Music strictly enforced COVID protocols such as temperature checks upon entry, providing patrons with masks and hand sanitizer, a sanitization team cleaning high-contact surfaces like bathroom handles, contactless food/drink delivery, and reduced capacity in an open-air venue. Watch Kai Wachi’s Roll ’N Rave mini-documentary to get a feel for the magic of Singularity to come.
Pods will be designated for groups of five people, with a maximum pod occupancy of eight for an additional fee. The socially distanced event will follow all current local and state health guidelines, including a mandate that masks must be worn at all times.
