Meet Chris Yangello, the teenager behind media promotions of Nicki Minaj & Travis Scott




Much of everything we buy, sell, attend, or interact with has gone digital, and music is no exception. As social media explodes and facilitates word-of-mouth for popular music events, young people are embracing this trend following the digital media promotion of their favorite artists. With a keen eye for content and a deep understanding of digital marketing, Chris Yangello has made a name for himself as one of the top digital marketing promoters in the business at just 17-years-old.

Born in King of Prussia, PA, Chris Yangello runs his promotion company alongside his responsibilities as a student at Devon Preparatory School. His company, called Forever*, is a live-event production and digital music marketing company and is based out of Philadelphia, PA. Previously, signed to Sony Music Entertainment’s REDMusic Label, Chris has been working in music media promotions since 2018 and now actively creates and produces concerts and content for large-scale music festivals under his own company. “From the first time I picked up a camera and started to create, I knew that this was something that I wanted to devote my life too,” says Chris.

Chris has worked with some of the most famous names in music, including Nicki Minaj, Travis Scott, Zedd, Jake Miller, Kendrick Lamar, and countless others. “My love for the hip-hop and music scene as a whole has fueled my passion for my career and everything I do,” states Chris. “Working with and meeting new artists, content creators, and event production teams are an absolute blessing.” Chris’s passion is creating, and his company focuses on digital marketing, live-event production, and social media influence.

His career is off to a great start much earlier than most people’s. At just 17-years-old, he’s accomplished so much in the music industry. He has had the privilege of working with major festivals such as Rolling Loud Miami, Firefly Music Festival, and Coachella. While most teenagers find themselves relaxing or hanging out with friends in their downtime, Chris is burning the midnight oil and building the career of his dreams.

“There’s no career as versatile, competitive, and enjoyable as being involved in the music industry,” explains Chris. “Versatility and competition are what fueled me to get Forever* off the ground.” Leaving no opportunity on the table, not only will Chris be running his company after high school, but he will also be attending Seton Hall University in the fall. Chris Yangello is more than motivated to continue to take on the music scene. Through his hard work and dedication, he is living it every day.

The fundamental features of community festivals’ social implications




Music’s power is an extraordinarily vital and unique instrument that improves the human experience. When combined with a social gathering of individuals from all walks of life who have come to appreciate this art, it creates a force unlike any other. Music allows people to imagine their lives and evoke powerful memories. Music is integral to cultural gatherings, festivals, and belief systems. Sound and rhythm patterns provide a unique insight into an individual’s thoughts on current culture, subcultures, and societal concerns. Community festivals allow people of a community to engage in socialization, entertainment, and the formation of social networks, all of which can contribute to the promotion of community cohesiveness and the development of social capital within a community. 

In addition to bringing people of all colors, races, and ethnicities together, these festivals also play a pivotal role in promoting upcoming artists in the music industry. Festivals have long been one of the most prolific venues for promoting new music and exposing listeners to contemporary artists. The absence of festivals and venues has significantly hampered fresh content and talent exposure. Music is vital during festivals because it creates an instant link among those who attend. Festival music speaks to our human yearning to connect, and music is a means of self-expression that transcends all language borders. Picking up performances at smaller or local music festivals is a terrific method for new performers to get into the live music scene.
