What others are saying
Studio 188, in partnership with Music Industry Inside Out screened the Live Arena webinar with the support of the Ipswich City Council. The evening had a very engaged and passionate crowd eager to learn about the Music Industry. Audience feedback was overwhelmingly positive with many commenting on the fun, fresh and relevant content Dom Miller, Katie Rynne and Martine discussed. The webinar is a one stop shop for all your Live touring, performance and ticketing needs, the topics discussed suited our emerging beginner musicians to others with more performance experience. As a venue booker, the webinar and event as a whole was a great way to connect with new and existing members of the local music community, it provided an opportunity to bridge the gap that is often perceived between artists and venues and create a mutual understanding of each other’s wants and needs. I would recommend anyone interested in learning more about performing, touring, and what it takes to be a venue booker/booking agent to attend one of Music Industry Inside Out’s Live Arena webinars.
Hosting the Live Arena webinar was a true pleasure, Katie and Dom are at the top of their field and I hope emerging artists and industry professionals alike take the time to watch, listen and learn
