Brisbane Fringe Festival Music Industry Workshops

Brisbane Fringe Festival Music Industry Workshops

Q Music and BEMAC present two free music industry workshops during Brisbane Fringe Festival 2015

Music Industry Mythbusting panel session – Thursday August 20 – 5:30pm – 8:30pm

The music industry is changing so rapidly these days that a lot of our ideas and beliefs about the industry are no longer true or even relevant. The Music Industry Mythbusters forum seeks to challenge some of those myths and either bust them or prove them. Examples of myths discussed will be ‘does a record deal mean money in your pocket? Expensive gear is better gear? You need a manager? The real money is in touring? Join us for this fun look at the realities of the current industry.

Facilitator: Andrew Tuttle (APRA/AMCOS)

Speaker: Kellie Lloyd ( Screamfeeder)

Speaker: Craig Spann (Sugar Rush Music)

Speaker: Jesse Barbara (Fans Group/Venue Owner/Booker)


Grants, Fundraising and Show me the Money panel session – Monday August 24 – 5:30pm – 8:30pm

 Most of you will have seen the recent uproar in the news about recent cuts in Arts Funding. What does this mean for artists in the future and how do you give yourself the very best chance at a funding application. This session will also look at alternatives to grant applications.

Facilitator: Andrew Tuttle (APRA/AMCOS)

Speaker: Deb Suckling (BEMAC/Sugar Rush Music, Australia Council Peer Assessor)

Speaker: Vera Ding (General Manager, BEMAC)

Speaker: Lawrence English (ROOM 40 and Australia Council Peer Assessor)
