Rob Da Bank: Building Festivals + Finding Life Balance
By David Newell
This episode is all about building your dreams but doing it with patience, perseverance, and uniqueness. In the music industry for over 20 years, first as a journalist, then breaking into DJing with a regular spot on BBC Radio 1 as well as managing talent under his own record label, Rob then partnered with his wife Jocie to building out their own independent music festival which has grown over the last 15 years into the mega event that is Bestival. What I love about Rob is he is super down to earth despite being clearly incredibly talented and organised to run everything he has done successfully. I caught up with him in the days just before Bestival 2018. You might hear a few trucks and things moving as he was on the build site as we were speaking! Stay tuned to the end for some great advice about building your dreams.
