MusicTank’s live course Get Plugged In: Live Music, Promotion and Venue Management will return in 2013 to deliver insider knowledge and advice on today’s touring scene.
MusicTank promises 50% more content on the course next year as well as discussion of labels’ further integration and support of the live music industry.
Co-creator and manager of The Luminaire Andy Inglis will once again tutor the course.
He will be joined by a raft of industry figures including Dave Newton (founder of WeGotTickets), Carina Jirsch (Schoneberg Concerts, formerly of Mean Fiddler Group), Mark Muggeridge (proprietor of Evil Genius Media), Ross Allmark (Old Blue Last, Birthdays, Vice), Ruth Barlow (Beggars Group) and Sophia Hagberg (End Of The Road Festival).
“We're back for a third year with more tales from the coalface of the live industry,” said Inglis. “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.”
