Artist:Entrepreneur Day

The next edition of the Artist:Entrepreneur Day from the Featured Artists Coalition and CMU:DIY is just a week away, with the full schedule for the proceedings now online.

A:E Day is the artist-to-artist education programme from FAC and CMU:DIY that provides a practical guide for early-career artists on building a career around their music. The next edition takes place in Manchester on Friday 20 Jul, hosted by Brighter Sound at the Band On The Wall venue in the city’s Northern Quarter.

The day is led by artist entrepreneurs Roxanne De Bastion, Femme and ShaoDow, with input from FAC CEO Lucie Caswell and CMU MD Chris Cooke. A number of music industry experts will also be contributing insights and advice, with PPL, PRS For Music, AWAL, Sparklestreet Management and Sentric Music among the companies set to take part.

Across the day, the three artist entrepreneurs will discuss their own music careers and artist businesses, including: songwriting and recording and managing the resulting copyrights; getting and staging gigs; connecting with fans online and building a visual identity; and how to choose which business partners to work with on distribution, administration, marketing, management, merchandise, live activity and direct-to-fan.

Tickets are just £10 for the full-day event. More info and schedule here.
