Posts Tagged ‘co-promotion deals’
Following on with the Fair Play Guide series, in the previous post, we introduced the suggestion of co-promotion deals and what the MU says constitues a bad deal. This post offers up a few more tips for negotiating and arranging co-promotion gigs.
There’s no reason why all co-promotion deals should be the same, as there are so many variables, including: venue capacity, location, other acts on the bill, and ticket price etc. It is therefore most effective to treat each gig as an individual negotiation. Many artists reach a level whereby they can command their desired fee and conditions without compromise, sometimes through an agent, but most gigging musicians have to negotiate on each and every show.
