English Folk Expo has teamed up with the Featured Artists Coalition and CMU:DIY to bring you a special folk edition of their Artist:Entrepreneur Day. The day presents a series of talks, case studies and discussions about pursuing a career in the music industry. Hosted by three artist entrepreneurs from the Featured Artist Coalition — Ellen Smith (Shadowlark), Eckoes, and David John Jaggs (The Ragamuffins) — A:E Day will show you how to build a business around your music, including your music rights, your live performances and your direct-to-fan relationships.
From music copyright, to building your fanbase, to choosing the right business partners, the artist-led A:E Day features presents important information and practical advice to help early-stage artists build a long-term career and sustainable business around their music.
You will also get to meet professionals from across the industry, and understand how to find and choose a team of providers and partners to support your own artist business.
This event is delivered as part of English Folk Expo and will take place on Saturday 23rd October starting at 10am, at HOME in Manchester. Tickets are £11.37 (£10 + booking fee) but EFEx Digital Subscribers get a 50% discount.
