Generator & Tipping Point are proud to present ‘Music Masters’, the latest series of high octane, music business masterclasses covering all things industry from touring to branding, gigs to labels, self-releasing to publishing and everything in between – through Music Masters, Generator will provide highly engaging events with key professionals from the very industry itself sharing their knowledge and views.


In the second instalment of the Music Masters series, we proudly present Get The Gigs, a day-long event tailormade for artists, managers and promoters who aspire to make their mark in the music industry live sector in 2018.


In conjunction with a handpicked panel of experts with a breadth of experience in the industry, we will offer an insight into all things ‘live music’.

For artists, we will offer sage advice on the logistics and protocols of putting a tour together, practical touring routes, and budgeting meticulously. We will also discusshow to effectively approach promoters with your product.

We will look at how promoters build up a roster of live artists on your own and the precise art of planning gigs and curating tours, as well as the intricacies and do’s and don’ts of dealing with national booking agents.


Whether you are a performer, promoter, or an artist manager, within this masterclass, you will acquire the knowledge to adequately curate your own events and tours, or become a viable option for existing events, agencies and tours. Alongside this, our panel will offer an insight into industry etiquette, ensuring you appear professional to booking agents and venues alike when looking for gigs.
