Join PRS for Music and the Musicians Union to find out how the business operates and how to make it work better for you.
Now more than ever before, musicians and artists are taking a DIY approach to creating, releasing and exploiting their music. Some are self-releasing now with hopes of securing a future record deal, but others see it as a long-term strategy for their careers. Either way, if you are planning to release your own music then it’s vital you understand some fundamentals about the way the music industry works and how your music can generate revenue.
19.00: Doors open
19.15 – 20.15: Mind your own business
The Musicians’ Union explain how record labels and music publishers make their money and how independent artists can do the same.
20.30 – 21.30: How to get the most from PRS membership
PRS for Music will introduce you to the UK’s major collection societies and explain how musical royalties are generated, collected and paid.
This evening will conclude with networking.
