A:E Day comes to Belfast for the first time on Sunday 18 Nov in partnership with Help Musicians NI.
Introducing A:E Day
• Any artist who wants to make a living out of their music today needs to think like a small business. Which means, once you have some songs written and tracks recorded, it’s time to start getting the business side sorted.
•The Artist:Entrepreneur Day from FAC and CMU:DIY is a practical guide to building a long-term career and sustainable business around your music.
•With knowledge shared artist-to-artist, you’ll hear and learn from fellow artist entrepreneurs who will let you inside their careers and their businesses throughout the day, explaining: how they make and monetise their music, how they built and evolved a brand, how they found and engaged a fanbase, and how they decided which suppliers and business partners to work with along the way.
•The Artist:Entrepreneur Day also includes five Artist:Entrepreneur Guides from CMU:DIY. Together they provide all the basic information you need on five different aspects of the music business, including: revenue streams, music rights, gigging, digital channels and business partners.
•PLUS hear from leading experts in the music industry – including labels, publishers, collecting societies, promoters, agents, managers, lawyers and digital experts – find out what they do, what they offer artists, and when and how you might want to get them on board.
