My name is Diego Clemente and I was born on Feb. 14th 1980 in La Spezia, Italy.
I started to work in the music business when I was 21, as I was asked to join/work at the local rock club. I soon became co-owner of the club and I took charge of program & production.
I kept that role for 16 years, booking/promoting and taking care of over 2500 bands while I was busy with other projects, including a 4 years collaborations with a local government funded large summer venue.
This amount of contact developed through the years pushed me (and my future main partner) to start Otis Tours in 2008, with the aim to bring to our clubs bands that we want to book and wrap short tours around. Otis Tours expanded very quickly and became my first project and full time job.
Otis Tours is nowadays booking/promoting around 300 shows per year, working mostly with overseas bands, all over Europe and providing side services such as van rental/s, backline rentals and related. I personally relocate in north Europe (Sweden) 2 years ago, so now the company has headquarter/storage in both Italy & Sweden and is expanding in the north European market.
