    Event description

    Whether you're a seasoned musician or just starting out, understanding the ins and outs of budgeting for a tour is crucial to heading out on the road with confidence.

    Artists, managers, promoters and others interested in regional touring are invited to attend this session on the knowledge and tools you need to confidently navigate the world of tour budgeting:

    Learn to make a budget, including estimating expenses, revenues and your bottom line
    Discover where you’ll need to allocate money and how to prioritise and optimise your spending
    Get tips on how to manage your cash flow before, during and after the tour.

    You’ll also get a comprehensive template that you can personalise and use for all future tours.

    Speakers for this session, the 2nd in our series focused on touring regional NSW, are Rad Music’s Daniel Radburn and Mark Bawden.

    After playing in touring bands and opening Wollongong’s Rad Bar, Daniel took the plunge into artist management with local band Hockey Dad in 2013 and now has 10 years worth of experience developing artists through all stages of their careers. Mark Bawden is a highly accomplished tour manager and promoter with over 10 years of experience in the music industry coordinating simultaneous national and international tours for Australian and international artists, talent and crew. He is also an artist manager and draws on his deep knowledge of the industry and genuine passion for music to be a trusted advisor and advocate for the artist he manages.

    MusicNSW is working across the state to increase contemporary music touring, expand artists and industry networks, and build on existing industry knowledge in regional NSW. As part of our Sound Advice program, we are delivering six workshops to share best practices for touring regional NSW with emerging musicians and industry. These sessions will cover when to tour, budgeting, logistics, approaching venues, marketing & publicity and getting gig-ready.
