London Met hosted a 'Live and Touring' event in conjunction with the Music Managers Forum to offer real-time insight into the music industry.
Date: 1 May 2019
Earlier this year, London Metropolitan University’s Music Business team hosted a one-day event which offered a unique insight into the music industry. The session covered subjects such as how to get gigs, direct-to-fan ticketing and booking agents.
Working with the Music Managers Forum (MMF), the largest representative body of artist management in the world, the event was organised by Erik Nielsen, a Visiting Professor at London Met who has worked with international artists such as Elton John, James Blunt and Lily Allen.
Dr Milan Todorovic, course leader for Music Business BA, said: “Being in a position to host events such as these is an exciting opportunity to show the quality of teaching that we offer at London Met.
“The event was organised through cross collaboration with London Met and Music Managers Forum. We regularly host high profile events, such as this, and I am delighted to be able to offer students an insight into the music world.”
Tre Stead, tour manager for Frank Turner, gave attendees an insight into what “A Day in the Life” of a tour may look like. Tre won the Tour Manager of the Year awards at the 2018 Live Music Awards.
MMF and London Met have a partnership meaning the quality of teaching is of excellent standard and students who undertake the course have unique access to MMF accredited events and training.
