In the first episode of The Set Up Podcast, Sydney and Ace discuss the biggest live event conference in the nation Xlive, festival production, and building an original video series.
Ace Antonio is the Founder and Executive Producer of The Beat Stop, a festival news video publication. The Beat Stop is a festival news, media and entertainment brand with a focus on original video content. The Beat Stop started as a passion project in his garage and transformed into a reparable spot to catch the latest news in music. He is also the Marketing Director for Pacific Records and Producer of Sun God Music Festival, the largest collegiate festival in the US with over 15,000 attendees each year.
In 2011, Ace attended the Electric Daisy Carnival in Las Vegas and it set him on a path towards a career in live events. Inspired by the event, Ace began promoting shows in college and, upon graduation in 2015, broadened his professional horizons with the ultimate goal of one day producing his own music festival.
Ace is the first of many professionals who work behind the scenes in the music industry.
