Too Much Love and Raygun Agency present “How to Release and Promote your Music” a free music business seminar
Everyone that knows Miami is aware that the busy season, high season, is winter. In South Florida the temperatures drop to levels considered “lovely” by most of the world, and art, music, hospitality and many other business aspects of the city kick into high gear.
For the last few years III Points Festival, in the Wynwood Arts District, has served as a somewhat unofficial kick off for this high season. It is the first of the big music events of the season and one of the most beloved event by the locals, since it includes many local acts, vendors and voluntaries. The list of acts performing at III Points grows in magnitude each year, and of course, the expectations are higher than ever for this year.
For this reason, and know how many musicians and music lovers will be in town, Raygun Agency and Too Much Love Magazine teamed up with III Points Festival to host one of their Activation Events. The idea of this activation event is to inform, educate and prepare musicians on how to properly release and promote their music, and what steps to take to do so in a way that they won’t mess anything up.
“Too often we witness musicians dealing with consequences of a rushed decision. Whether it be impatience to release their music before it is ready, contracts or agreements not favorable to the artist, at Raygun Agency we see it all the time.” Says Florencia Franceschetti, founder of Raygun Agency. “We decided that it would be in the interest of everyone for us to set up a seminar that can teach everyone the “Do’s and Don’ts” of the music business. We have experts in several areas of the business, including Press, A&R, Legal, and Public Relations”
The seminar will be a panel style discussion, with two sets of three speakers, and a small break in the middle. At the end of each panel there will be a short Q&A session, and at the end of the event there will be beverages served, courtesy of Baron Tequila. During this time, one on one discussions shall be encouraged.
