Sound Advice: Getting Started as a Touring Artist


Saturday 2 April. 10-12 Orange. 1-4 Bathurst. Presented by Music NSW. A special masterclass, touring musician and head of Sure Thing Agency Raechel Whitchurch.

Raechel will  take you through the ABCs of touring from how to approach venues, budgeting, splits and guarantee negotiations, all the way through to how to get people to come once it’s all booked.

A masterclass on strategic touring with Raechel Whitchurch

Touring can sharpen your stagecraft and songwriting, earn you a heap of new fans and (if you can believe it) an income! But if you don’t think strategically about your touring, it can wipe you out, financially and emotionally.

Hosted by Regional Music Officer for the Central West Patrick Coomey, this session is essential for anyone who’s starting to think about touring, or for the well-travelled musician looking for tips to tighten up their touring game.
