For over a decade, IRIS has produced high-energy dance music events featuring electrifying audio-visual experiences, captivating lighting designs and a loyal following among electronic dance music enthusiasts. Founded by Glenn Goodhand in 1996, IRIS was one of the pioneer old-school promotion companies in Atlanta during the late 90’s and early 2000’s. Taking a short break from the business between 2005 and 2011, Glenn finished law school and married his wife Madeleine Ehrnrooth Goodhand. In 2011, the brand re-emerged as Iris Presents, Inc. with his wife joining the company as partner.
IRIS reflects the perfect marriage of hearts and minds with a core philosophy to spread light, love and positivity through unique and interactive entertainment experiences. With no signs of slowing down, IRIS was voted Atlanta’s number one promoter the past three years in a row and has won several accolades and awards in the Atlanta area for their well known weekly event ESP101 [Learn to Believe].
