Wildfires are not new to California. However, recent fires cost more lives and property than any in history, leaving dozens dead and hundreds of thousands of acres scorched.

Whether one is planning a wedding on a California beach or a multi-nation tour, the person in charge of the event must foresee any contingencies and meet the expectations and demands of all involved.

In California and across the country, business partnerships are often compared to marriages. They include many similar characteristics in the way partners run the business together, and they may end in civil litigation if the partners are no longer able to get along.

Concert and event promoters carry a significant amount of responsibility. In addition to lining up acts for their events, the promoters must advertise the events and ensure everything is in place on the date of the show. When things go wrong, it is often the promoter who bears the brunt of the blame. This is why California event promoters may end up in complex civil litigation since so many people depend on the smooth running of an event.
California concert and festival promoters have many details to attend to, especially if they have a popular act headlining the event.
