FESTIVALS AND TOURING (AKA: SPACE INVADERS)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The landscape has drastically changed, from seller (agent/artist) to buyer (promoter/talent buyer). Record sales are way down, so touring is way up, as a means to monetize your band. Whether dealing with established or developing artists, find out what the buyer is looking for and why they choose the bands they do. Hear how the agent and artist determine when to tour, how long, on what packages, etc to maximize their worth. An authentic inside perspective view from the people making such decisions daily.
