VALENCIA, Spain (CelebritAccess) — DIY music distributor CD Baby is partnering with Berklee Valencia to bring its DIY Musician Conference back to Spain for a second year.
Set for April 6-7, 2019, the conference is aimed at self-managed artists and will include workshops and keynotes on marketing, pr, recording, songwriting, and royalties collection tailored to the EU market.
The conference will also include live performance opportunities for artists, as well as special offerings from YouTube and other companies, as well as networking opportunities.
The conference will once again take place at Aula Magistral of the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía and on the grounds of Berklee College of Music Valencia in the City of Arts and Sciences. Sessions will be held primarily in English, with several events in Spanish.
The conference’s inaugural year in 2018 saw artists from 22 countries attend the conference, representing nearly every style and genre of music.
“We’re excited to team up with Berklee Valencia once again and bring panels and workshops to European artists who are managing their own careers,” says Kevin Breuner, VP Marketing of CD Baby.
We’ve been increasingly asked to present the kind of very artist-oriented, actionable content we feature at our DIY Musician Conferences around the globe,” Breuner added. “It’s about bringing an education experience to the artist community that only CD Baby can do. Especially in an area like Europe that tends to still be focused on the need for a label. We are here to suggest rewarding alternatives.”
