No. 49: Paul Tollett | Power 100

PAUL TOLLETT, 53

President, Goldenvoice Productions

20 YEARS, ONE PREMIER MUSIC FESTIVAL: Beyoncé's headlining performance at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival will go down in pop music history: Her 100-dancer, 26-song spectacular reunited Destiny's Child and became the most-viewed live-music festival performance on YouTube ever, peaking at 458,000 simultaneous global viewers. Goldenvoice has stopped releasing Coachella attendance figures, but the 2018 crowd reportedly hit a quarter-million, and even though Kanye West pulled out of Coachella 2019, tickets for the 20th anniversary of Tollett's desert festival -- anchored by headliners Ariana Grande, Childish Gambino and Tame Impala -- sold out in six hours. "Things come so fast," the media-shy Tollett told the Los Angeles Times in January. "You just do your best."i
