Music SA & The Northern Sound System Present
EYES ON THE ROAD Tickets
5:30pm, Wed 2 May, 2018
Northern Sound System, SA
Music SA, in conjunction with APRA AMCOS is very proud to announce the first of its annual and free workshops 'Eyes on the Road': A Guide to Effective Touring in Australia.
Held at: The Northern Sound System (73 Elizabeth Way, Elizabeth);
Featuring: Ray Dalfsen (West Thebarton), Alice Fraser (Laneway Festival), Harry Moore (123 Agency) and Sian Walden (Little Acorn Music/Music SA) as panelists and Nick O'Connor (Heaps Good Friends/Northern Sound System) as facilitator.
About: The ideals and realities of modern Australian touring will be fleshed out and scrutinized by some Australia's most road-worn music industry professionals.
The dream of every budding musician is the idea of life on the road; burning down the highway in a van filled with instruments, a few records and dirty tees to sell at the merch desk, maybe a few beers and your bandmates. In 2018, is this idea a reality? Or has it always been just a fantasy?
In this workshop, the realities of modern touring will be laid out for discussion from the perspective of the touring artist, along with the variety of industry professionals involved in making a tour successful, profitable and if not financially profitable, worthwhile in the long term.
