Artist:Entrepreneur Day

The Featured Artists Coalition is teaming up with CMU:DIY to present another series of Artist:Entrepreneur Days this autumn, with editions set to take place in Birmingham, Newcastle and Manchester.

The A:E Day is an artist-led event that provides important information and practical advice to help early-stage artists build a long-term career and sustainable business around their music. Hosted by three of the FAC’s artist advocates alongside CMU’s Chris Cooke, each edition is packed with guides, case studies, interviews and discussions.

The first of this autumn’s Artist:Entrepreneur Days is presented in partnership with AWAL as part of the Pivotal music conference in Birmingham on 27 Sep.

FAC and AWAL are hosting their own venue as part of the conference which is where the five A:E Day sessions will take place, providing practical advice for artists on making money, securing their music rights, getting gigs, building a fanbase and choosing business partners.

These sessions are open to any Pivotal ticket holders. A schedule for the day is online here. Tickets are on sale now here

Alongside the A:E Day, CMU is also hosting another strand of sessions at Pivotal. Before lunch those will put the focus on the Pathways Into Music programme that is mapping music education. The afternoon will then be all about data, kicking off with a speed briefing on the MMF ‘Fan Data Guide’ that CMU Insights compiled earlier this year.

Meanwhile, more details about the Newcastle and Manchester editions of A:E Day will be announced very soon. For more information about the full A:E programme, click here.
