Where music really makes its money – monetising the act

Wednesday 17 June


With income from sales of records declining, bands and their managers have to either find additional ways of making money or focus on areas hitherto they may not have prioritised. Online networking and user generated content sites such as MySpace and YouTube have enabled many musicians and bands to share work with others and promote their music, but how can they turn their virtual popularity into real cash? This event will discuss ways of building a brand for musicians and bands, what role gigs can play to sell music and merchandise to fans, and how you can use your IP to maximise income.

Admission is free, places are limited.

Venue:  Podium Lecture Theatre, London College of Communication, Elephant & Castle, London SE1 6SB
