Los Angeles: Building a Grassroots Movement

Ross Gardiner is co-launching the Los Angeles Nightlife Alliance, convening a group to bring together a love of LA's nightlife, government savvy, and community organizing. He shares his stories of how efforts in Berlin, Amsterdam, and London led to efforts in New York, which has led to this grassroots effort growing for the past year in Los Angeles.

Guest: Ross Gardiner, Co-Founder, LA Nightlife Alliance

Ross Gardiner is a founding member of the Los Angeles Nightlife Alliance, an advocacy and organizing coalition which represents the interests of the city’s nightlife community.   Originally hailing from the Highlands of Scotland, Ross spent several years as music journalist and editor (Billboard, Mixmag, Vice), and a festival consultant with his boutique agency Black Circle Media. His clients include EDC, Tomorrowland, Electric Zoo, Oasis Festival, Red Bull, and Metro.  Prior to founding LANA, Ross spent two years “apprenticing” with nightlife organizing thought-leaders Lutz Leichsenring (executive director, Berlin Clubcommission) and Mirik Milan (former Amsterdam Night Mayor). He served as the communications and creative director for their project the Creative Footprint, and helped launch their international consultancy VibeLab.
