Independent Music NZ is very proud to present an afternoon session with Andy Inglis this February 3rd at Studio One in Ponsonby.
Entry is free to all of our IMNZ members and any of your interested compatriots.
Andy is in town during the Laneway Festival with East India Youth, and we are delighted to welcome him to meet with our local industry and to talk about his experiences within the music industry over the last 26 years.
The topics for discussion are Tour Management, Venue Management and the International Festival Market – about which, Andy promises to deliver some serious insight into the structures of the live industry, the players and the (sometimes horrific) conditions, all mediated with humour, true stories, criticism and a captivating flow. The talk is accompanied by animated slides in a lively, engaging style (includes impassioned arm-waving, occasional profanity) and will encourage an atmosphere ripe for debate, discussion and input from those in the attendance.
If there are any particular questions you would like Andy to address, please email them through to email@example.com for collation before the session.
Did we mention the swearing?
There may quite likely be some swearing. And considered opinions, and debate.
