Make the most of festival season

Live performance is one of the most important aspects of any music career and there’s no doubt that practice makes perfect! However, expanding your knowledge about the economics of the people that put on your gigs, tips to build your fanbase and audience, and learning more about the services that a reputable sound engineer can offer will also help massively.

Our You & The Music Industry hub is full of practical advice provided by the likes of Musicians’ Union, BBC Introducing and other experienced promoters & booking contacts to make sure your live gigs are an unforgettable experience.
