Festivals: The Good The Bad The Ugly says
Austin's newest music business networking group returns with another FREE opportunity-laden event for musicians and industry pros!

Doors 6pm
Moment of Truth pitch session 6-7pm
Panel 7-8:30pm
Networking til close

MOMENT OF TRUTH: Bring your recordings (finished masters only) on CD or flash drive! An indie filmmaker currently seeking music for a project will tell us what they need. If you have a song that you think fits the bill, you'll get to play one minute of the track right then and there for instant consideration.

THE PANEL: A discussion of the rhythms of festival booking and PR, including the differences between application vs. invitation festivals, PR timing when you're in the festival, and PR/media outreach when you're NOT in the festival but the festival is in your town, sucking up all the press bandwidth while you still have shows to promote.

Our industry-veteran speakers, from booking, PR, and the media, will cover how to get into Austin festivals (SXSW, ACL, FunFunFun Fest, Blues on the Green, etc etc etc), how to promote effectively, and also--a huge challenge for Austin acts--how to keep booking and drawing to your regular shows when the festival of the month seems to be taking all the attention.

PANELISTS (scheduled to appear):
Greg Ackerman, music journalist
Roggie Baer, RajiWorld
Brandon DeMaris, DeMaris Entertainment
Bobby Garza, Transmission Events
Heather Wagner Reed, Juice Consulting

Moderator: Debbie Stanley, Thoughts In Order
