Julien Paquin is the president of the agency division of Paquin Entertainment and a seasoned agent. Under Julien's direction, the Agency roster has steadily grown to over 150 acts, representing a broad spectrum of musical styles. Having signed such notable artists as Tegan & Sara, Serena Ryder, Josh Ritter and K'Naan, to name a few, Julien's knack for finding quality talent has been proven time and time again.
In this workshop, Julien will discuss how he plans and builds an artist's tour, from routing, to picking promoters, to negotiating fees. He will provide tangible advince on how he keeps on top of his contacts, decides what fees to ask for in what markets, and builds tours that make sense. This workshop will provide invaluable insight for anyone booking their own tours, for artist managers developing a touring plan for their act, and for aspiring and beginning booking agents.
