With the decline in music sales in recent years, touring whether DJ sets or live shows has become one of the most important elements of artist development and a primary source of revenue. When successfully executed touring can have a huge impact on an artist's career. How do you choose the right cities to play and make sure you have the proper contracts? Learn from promoters, venues, agents and managers how an artists career can be improved with appropriate bookings; how shows are bought, sold and built upon; and how people make money from them. Get insight into these and other areas of the touring industry and see what the future of live music may hold.
