Direct to fan firm Music Glue has announced that it will officially launch its new platform at The Great Escape later this month. The company, which works with the likes of Mumford And Sons, Gabrielle Aplin, Nina Nesbitt, Enter Shikari, Ben Howard and Ghostpoet on their D2F operations, will demonstrate their new platform at a special presentation on day two of the TGE convention, Friday 17 May, at 2.45pm at Dukes @ Komedia.

Commenting on his firm’s new platform, Music Glue founder Mark Meharry (pictured) told CMU: “We’ve developed this cutting edge new platform with our highly dedicated team and are very pleased to now finally unveil it to the world. Our new technology has the power to genuinely change the way the industry works and for the first time brings together everything an artist, label or promoter could need to sell products direct to consumers”.

Music Glue will also host a ‘mixer’ party after the launch at TGE, while Meharry will be on stage the previous day too, taking part in a panel discussing the state of play in the wider D2F market, led by journalist Adam Webb, and also featuring insights from Wicksteed Works’ Jessie Scoullar, Pledge Music’s Paul Barton and Topspin’s Stephen O’Reilly.
