Get Plugged In: Live Music, Promotion and Venue Management Course
Monday evenings commencing February 27th 2012


"A very enjoyable course.  A great mix of information, frank discussion, humour and profanity. A pint down the pub afterwards was also a great way to network and have a general chat about the course. Monday nights will never be the same again!" - Andy Knight, RGS Entertainment


MusicTank is again partnering with with Andy Inglis, the hugely respected co-creator and manager of north London venue The Luminaire to run its second live music industry course.  Designed as a much needed best-practice roadmap for live music promotion and venue management, this six part course draws on Inglis’ two decades of experience, sharing lessons learned and highlighting the pitfalls plaguing promoters and venue operators UK wide.  The course will update on an extensive range of topics concerning venue owners, promoters, artists and programmers including promotion, ticketing, legislative issues as well as the future concerns facing the UK’s live music industry. 


Inglis will be joined by a raft of leading industry figures (tbc) to give their accounts of the industry focusing on areas of specific expertise.  Despite the 100 Club’s recent rescue from the brink there have been some much publicised London closures of late, The Luminaire itself not escaping the recession’s icy clutches. Part of the course will investigate the events that led to its closure, as well as what this award winning venue did to gain such an avid following and a special place in the hearts of Londoners.


Appealing to venue promoters and owners as well as tour managers, booking agents, artists and artist managers, this extensive course promises to guide and encourage those learning their trade as well as identify the risks felling even the industry titans in one of the last sectors of the business still able to generate income for new bands.
