MusicTank announces 2013 live music course

By | Published on Thursday 13 December 2012


MusicTank has announced that its live music training course will return in 2013, again led by Andy Inglis, but with 50% new content, including an overview of what the Live Music Bill means for the grass roots live music industry.

Commenting on the next edition of the ‘Get Plugged In: Live Music, Promotion & Venue Management’ programme, Inglis told CMU: “We’re back for a third year with more tales from the coalface of the live industry. Over three days we’ll cover every major aspect of the business, getting plenty of dirt and grime under our fingernails as we dig around for the truth behind the headlines and the bottom lines behind the deals. Together with guest speakers – each experts in their field – we’ll help arm some of the next generation of live industry employers and employees to better face the challenges that lie ahead, in this complex and constantly-shifting landscape, using honesty, embarrassment (my own) and swearing as our weapons of choice”.

Guest speakers include WeGotTickets’ Dave Newton, Schoneberg Concerts’ Carina Jirsch, Beggars Group’s Ruth Barlow, End Of The Road Festival’s Sophia Hagberg, Evil Genius Media’s Mark Muggeridge and Ross Allmark from Old Blue Last, Birthdays and Vice.

The course kicks off on 29 Jan, more info here.
