Join music industry professionals for an informative evening about the foundations of playing, performing and promoting live music gigs. This event includes a panel, round table discussions and industry networking.

It’s not just about plugging in and playing. If you want to earn money from music, there are a few things you need to do as well as write bangers. This panel will discuss the tools you need to put in place to put on your own shows, get gigs and get paid. Foundational topics include playing, promoting and performing and how to make your shows as good as they can be.
