For such a small one, the word “live” represents one of the most crucial components of the music industry on any level. Live performance is where artists will hone their crafts in ways private rehearsal never will. It’s where fans will be made and the industry will take notice, and, eventually, where demand for supply of your product will be created. Explore the inner workings of this world with top agents, bookers and promoters. What do they look for in acts? How and when are they best approached?
