Korey Smith created his first event while attending high school in Roseburg, Oregon. The school administration had canceled a school dance, so he took matters into his own hands. He rented out a bowling alley and charged a couple of dollars at the door to pay for sound equipment, giving his fellow students a place to dance that night.
The enterprising student brought his party throwing skills to college at BYU, where he eventually caught the attention of Provo Live, a non-profit initiative to deepen the music and entertainment event scene in the college town of Provo, Utah. They asked Korey to be their event producer. And they also asked him to organize the biggest event he’s ever done.
