Fitz Holladay, Founder
Fitz Holladay is the Founder of wego concerts. He oversees the vision, strategy, and leadership for the company. Though he has been an avid music fan from a young age, he became very involved in the local music scenes in New York and Washington, DC upon graduating from the University of North Carolina. The idea for wego concerts came when he noticed a void in tools connecting fans who shared the same taste in music. In 2014, he launched wego concerts to fill this void and has since connected like-minded music fans across Washington, DC, New York, Los Angeles, and San Francisco.
In addition to leading the wego concerts team, Fitz is the Director of the Washington, DC chapter of Sofar Sounds. Started in London in 2010, Sofar Sounds is a global live music series that aims to bring the magic back to live music through secret shows in intimate, unique spaces. It exists in over 200 cities around the world and has featured artists like Bastille, Leon Bridges, Vanessa Carlton, Sylvan Esso, and more.
