The Newcastle Music Industry Forum
What does a booking agent look for? How do you fill a venue? MusicNSW, in partnership with the University of Newcastle Conservatorium of Music, is proud to announce The Newcastle Music Industry Forum - the first event in a brand new series aimed at local music lovers, aspiring artists, and the Newcastle music industry.
This special panel and networking drinks will focus on all things touring and live performance, and takes place at the Newcastle Conservatorium on Thursday 15 August.
From dissecting booking agreements to live gig etiquette, the importance of a front of house engineer to issues faced by tour managers - the panel has done it all. They'll explore what it means to hit the road successfully and will get you motivated, tuned up and ready for the road, with five leading experts on hand to share their anecdotes and expertise.
Guest speakers include James Boserio aka Jimmy Nice from Sydney duo Spit Syndicate; Andrew Kelly from Big Apachee; Executive Director of the Association of Artist Managers as well as co-director of Spark and Opus, Meg Williams; Sound/Production/Tour Manager Jay van Lieshout; and Katie Rynne, agent from Sydney-based booking agency Select Music.
The Newcastle Conservatorium is proud to have initiated this forum. It represents an important part of its education program with music and the creative industries.
Entry is free and open to all ages. Be sure to RSVP to secure your spot.
