Artist:Entrepreneur Day - Manchester

PPL supported the FAC's Artist:Entrepreneur Day on July 20.

The Artist:Entrepreneur Day from FAC and CMU:DIY is a practical guide to building a long-term career and sustainable business around your music.

Knowledge was shared artist-to-artist, we heard and learnt from fellow artist entrepreneurs who let us inside their careers and their businesses throughout the day, explaining: how they make and monetise their music, how they built and evolved a brand, how they found and engaged a fanbase, and how they decided which suppliers and business partners to work with along the way.

The Artist:Entrepreneur Day also included five Artist:Entrepreneur Guides from CMU:DIY. Together they provided all the basic information you need on five different aspects of the music business, including: revenue streams, music rights, gigging, digital channels and business partners.

PPL's Performer Development Specialist Leo O'Brien joined Roxanne de Bastion, ShaoDow and Femme at the event and spoke about how PPL can support artists.
