Each stop will take place in local venues throughout each market and feature free workshops with TUNECORE executives and industry experts, who will exchange tips and best practices about recording, distributing, promotion and marketing, while emphasizing the importance of working hand-in-hand with local partners and structures. As an added bonus, attendees at each of the sessions will enjoy live performances by local artists as well as refreshments..
TUNECORE CEO SCOTT ACKERMANa said: “Understanding and answering local artists’ needs are essential as we continue upholding our mission of supporting independent artists, as well as providing equal access to an affordable and transparent music distribution service. The TUNECORE EUROPEAN INDIE TOUR allows us to meet with artists face-to-face and provide them with the local tools and resources they need to be successful.”
