Michael Chugg, CEO of Chugg Entertainment said, “I have been promoting live shows for more than 50 years and I am constantly excited by new opportunities that are becoming a part of the touring landscape. YouTube FanFest is the perfect example of that – it’s a completely unique concept and provides a live platform for talent that fans could previously only interact with online.
