Pollstar Impact NextGen: Lindsay Dworman
Manager of Global Touring, AEG Presents
Christina Aguilera and Destiny’s Child at Universal Amphitheater, 2000
As manager of global touring at AEG Presents, Dworman books, routes and operates tours for a spectrum of acts, including Maggie Rogers, Sturgill Simpson and Illenium. The array of artists she works with and the responsibilities those relationships entail presents her job’s biggest challenge: time management. “I try to prioritize everything I do and use my time as effectively as possible,” she says.
As touring continues to grow – as Dworman predicts it will, especially as the industry keeps developing innovations to “help keep tickets in the hands of true fans” — her myriad responsibilities will only increase. Dworman emphasizes that “growing your network and your knowledge of different aspects of the industry is the foundation to building a career,” but her hectic schedule doesn’t preclude having fun on the job.
“For the Sturgill Simpson/Tyler Childers on sale, Gary Gersh had the idea for us to have a pajama party Friday morning, since a big group of us were coming in early,” she says. “Everyone went all out with dinosaur onesies, llama pajamas, robes, slippers, etc. It was really fun and something I will never forget.”
