Mike Finn comes from nearly two decades of touring experience. Originally from Boston, MA, where he started in the local music scene. Mike has organized every type of show, from sweaty basement shows and renting your local VFW halls for his friends punk bands, to setting up stadiums across the world. Starting on circuits like the Vans Warped Tour and taking opportunities outside of that world has lead him to work for such artists such as Mayday Parade, The Used, Boys Like Girls, Dillon Francis, Thomas Rhett, Morgan Wallen, and Travis Scott. He is the Director of Touring for Gold Theory Artists, overseeing all touring matters for bands such as Turnstile and Knocked Loose. Mike is also an associate professor at Berklee College of Music teaching Concerts and Touring, giving back to the touring community by sharing and educating students on the business of touring.
