Viacom & MTV unveil new artist platform

News: 16th August 2012 by Louise Dodgson under Live, Media, Selling & Distributing Your Music

Artist.MTV is the new online platform created by MTV and Viacom allowing artists and bands to set up their own profiles, and it's open to all; whether they have had MTV coverage in the past or not. They have also hooked up with Songkick to incorporate live dates onto profiles, not to mention Topspin who will have their direct to fan facilities integrated within the site.
