LA-based promoter Goldenvoice has made new promotions in its venues and festival divisions.
Jennifer Yacoubin hands over her booking responsibilities at LA’s El Rey Theatre (771-cap.) to Jennifer Liu, who becomes talent buyer, with Yacoubin promoted to talent buyer at the larger Shrine Auditorium & Expo Hall (6,300-cap.). Liu was previously talent buyer for the Roxy Theatre (500-cap.) in West Hollywood.
Mapi Moran, meanwhile, becomes director of festival marketing, handling properties including Coachella, Stagecoach and Hangout in Alabama. Moran (pictured) was previously marketing manager for Goldenvoice’s club/venue shows.
“I am beyond excited and grateful in my new role as the talent buyer for the iconic Shrine Expo Hall & Auditorium,” comments Yacoubian, who has been with the company since 2009, “and the opportunity to continue to grow within Goldenvoice.”
Goldenvoice, a subsidiary of AEG, produces several festivals, most notably Coachella, as well as operating 14 mid-sized venues and promoting 1,800 shows+ per year year. Its UK operation, Goldenvoice UK, similarly promotes concerts in Britain, and co-produced with AEG Presents Gorillaz’ recent Demon Dayz festival in Margate.
