FM - US Visa’s SXSW – all you need to know straight from the horse’s mouth.
Monday, 5 November 2012 from 18:00 to 21:30 (GMT)
London, United Kingdom
Been asked to play SXSW in 2013 or still waiting to hear? Daunted by the visa process? Think you don’t even need one?
Come and hear what the US Embassy is doing to help simplify the process and answer your questions.
Recently UK Music led a delegation of industry figures to meet with the VISA Chief and First Secretary at the US Embassy in London. The meeting was the first of its kind, arranged to address some of the complications and frustrations that many musicians and managers face when applying for a VISA to play in the United States.
The Visa Chief and Second Secretary are coming to FM First Monday to talk about the application process, what you need to do and what not to do, why you might have been turned down in the past and answer your questions.
When & Where
FM First Monday
FM - The Music Industry Social
FM Stands for First Monday so everyone knows exactly when in the month the event is (although people do sometimes still ask when the next one is!).
It's not stuffy in any way; no badges or bossy organisers – if it was like that, we wouldn’t come!!
FM is a very relaxed get together with people from the industry, in a bar, all there to meet other people in the industry and possibly do business. And it’s totally free. So much business is now done by email and online, we wanted to do things on a more personal level.
Pass this email on to anyone else you think may like to come and ask them to email me if they'd like to be added to the mailing list. We don't bombard you with pap - apart from anything we don't have the time! FM starts from 6.30 and runs until people go home - not always early… You can arrive early then go off to a gig or come along after – you don’t need to RSVP – just turn up.
People who come are; MANAGEMENT – LABELS – ARTISTS – PROMOTORS – PUBLISHERS – PRODUCERS – LAWYERS – ACCOUNTANTS – PHOTOGRAPHERS – VIDEO PRODUCERS – CHARITIES – TRADE BODIES SUCH AS MMF, BPI, AIM, MPA ETC, UKI TRADE AND INVESTMENT AS WELL AS STUDENTS LOOKING FOR INTERNSHIPS
We take a break in January and August.
