How to be Truly Independent in 2018 – supported by Absolute Label Services
12pm – 1.30pm
Thursday 17th May – Hotel Bar
The music business has changed massively over recent years. Gone are the days when a long-term label deal was the only way to get your record to market. Instead, an increasing number of artists and their managers are retaining their rights and controlling a greater portion of their careers directly. With the help of label services and D2C companies, they’re able to promote and distribute their records under their own steam and reap the rewards. In this panel, we discuss what true independence means in 2018 and how next level DIY artist entrepreneurs are carving out a whole new sector in the music biz.
Speakers: Tom Pakinkis – Communications & Editorial Consultant, Kate Hendry – Absolute Label Services, Dianne Bonney – Absolute Label Services, Will Spencer– Music Glue, Niko Michault – P.U.S.H. Music Management
