PRS for Music has partnered with much-loved not-for-profit Warren Records and The Warren Young People’s Project. They’re visiting Hull to offer a free event for local music creators. This follows successful panels of How To: Get Your Music Played, in Manchester, Newcastle and Sheffield last year.
Music industry professionals with hands-on experience will provide guidance and help music creators gain knowledge and understanding about the music business. Attendees will learn about the importance of protecting their music rights, and the various ways that creating music can help to generate an income.
The How To: Get Your Song Played And Paid panel discusses the importance of locking down your business and understanding and protecting your rights, plus how you can get your music heard. It will also explore funding for artists, and the different revenue streams available to songwriters and artists in the digital age.
8pm – 9.15pm: Panel – How To: Get Your Music Played and Paid
Evolution or revolution, the music industry is changing. Maybe you’re self-releasing or helping a mate book some live shows. You might be managing your own band or managing someone else’s, handling the socials or building a promo campaign, writing the songs, creating the beats, sitting in the studio or running around on stage, whatever you’re doing, it’s crucial that you understand the way the industry works. Otherwise how can you make it work for you?
