Touring is a daunting task for most independent bands because the monetary loss can be substantial. It's a lose-lose scenario unless done correctly. Find out the common mistakes that bands make touring, learn unconventional yet proven methods for generating the most crossover fans and merchandise sales, all while sustaining a band on the road for the long run.
This presentation will focus on the art of booking and promoting at venues. It will give each sides take on the subject (the band, the artist manager, the venue, and the booking agent). This will give the audience a deep understanding of what each party is seeking and how they come to an agreement, even with conflicting agendas. This presentation is a must attend for bands, promoters, artist managers, and booking agents!
Our EduMusication panel brings together the Arts and Careers. Many students get their knowledge of their craft in school, but they are rarely ever taught how to turn those artistic skills in a rewarding career. EduMusication aims to solve that by showing the path that professional musicians have taken to kickstart their career. We also break down how the Epic Proportions Tour was created to show talented young people how to start a business in the Arts & Entertainment field.
