When you’re in your teens, one of the most important things in your life is living up to the term “yolo” before your mid 20’s kick in and start defining the term hangover. Well that’s exactly what Melbourne teen Nick Stokes is doing by throwing Australia’s hottest underage parties.
Cashing in over $4000 a night, Nick Stokes runs his venture like a full on establishment. From hiring security to securing venues, Nick does all the logistics to get the party started. Primarily using Facebook as means to promote his gig, Nick has established a business that generates over 300 ticket sales a night and cashes in at $4500 per gig. After paying the staff their cut, Nick still walks away with close to $1200 in his pocket each night.
In an interview with the Herald Sun, Nick talks about his current venture:
“People have compared me to Corey Worthington but I don’t want to be associated with him — he’s not on my level. I’m much bigger than him. I’m the best at what I do.
