About the Workshop
National touring is quite a feat for anyone working in the indie world. Many major label artists with a full team of agents, managers, and publicists still have to kick and scratch their way onto the national touring landscape. Find out how to go from putting together little four-show tours to spending multiple weeks on the road in this workshop.
The DIY Series offers developing artists and industry, as well as veterans looking to update their skills, the opportunity to learn the fundamentals of the music business. The series starts with the music business fundamentals that everyone needs to master – bio writing, radio play, mastering social media, touring, and understanding copyright -- and ends with planning a release, showing how each of these pieces fit together to create a cohesive strategy.
