Featured Artists Coalition and CMU:DIY present the Artist:Entrepreneur Day at City Roots festival.

The Featured Artists Coalition and CMU:DIY will next month present the first ever Artist:Entrepreneur Day, as part of the City Roots festival in Cambridge on Thursday 1 March. This new event aimed at aspiring artists and future industry talent will see three artist entrepreneurs open up their respective artist businesses and discuss their decisions and experiences to date. The artist entrepreneurs leading this edition are Roxanne de Bastion, ShaoDow and Eckoes.

Each artist entrepreneur will discuss how they manage and monetise their music rights, their experiences gigging and touring, how they developed their brand and identity, and which channels are most effective for engaging fans. They will also discuss how they chose the business partners they currently work with, and what role each partner plays. 

Joining the artist entrepreneurs will be ten music industry experts who will offer practical advice on the business side of music, and explain how they support the artists they work with. Alongside that, CMU:DIY will present five new A:E Guides helping attendees understand music revenues, music rights and the music business.

The Artist:Entrepreneur Day is a new educational initiative - piloted by FAC and CMU:DIY last year - with a unique artist-to-artist approach. After the launch at City Roots, it will tour to other UK towns and cities in partnership with other festivals and venues around the country.
