You’re invited, TuneCore Artists:
When we launched our first-ever Indie Artist Forum back in September of 2015, we knew we wanted to provide an experience that would leave a lasting impression on those creators that attended. If you were to ask any of them now, we’re willing to bet we succeeded!
Now we’re bringing the action to the musical hotbed of Nashville, TN on Saturday, February 20th, 2016 at ACME Feed & Seed. Like our inaugural event, this Indie Artist Forum will include educational roundtable discussions, keynote speakers that live and breathe the music industry everyday, showcases that’ll include your talented TuneCore peers, and much more. TuneCore wants to show you that we’re committed to bringing our artist community together for straightforward, tactical discussions about the daily reality of being an artist in today’s music industry landscape.
Connecting with fellow indie artists goes beyond booking shows and interacting within your local scene. It’s about more than having a floor or couch to crash on when you’re out of town on tour. It’s about sharing ideas, struggles, opportunities, motivation and inspiration. Because nobody picks up an instrument, microphone or pen thinking, “This is gonna be a breeze!”
At no costs to artists.
Since TuneCore is determined to present an opportunity to artists of all career levels and genres that gives them something truly valuable to walk away with, we’re presenting the Indie Artist Forum free of charge. We request that you only RSVP for the Indie Artist Forum if you’re definitely going to be in the Nashville area on February 20th. That way, we can do our best to give everyone a fair chance to attend, while reaching a diverse group of TuneCore Artists.
“How can I RSVP?”
Visit this site to RSVP to the TuneCore Indie Artist Forum. Those that RSVP will be admitted to the Forum on a first-come, first-serve basis. Once you’re RSVP is confirmed, you’ll begin to receive pertinent announcements and information about the event via email.

Whether you’re an independent artist or an aspiring music business professional, education is a huge part of navigating this industry. In an effort to help educate, TuneCore has teamed up with Economic Development Department in Austin’s Music and Entertainment Division to offer FREE ‘Master Classes’ next Wednesday and Thursday.
Taught by TuneCore’s Manager of Entertainment Relations in our new Austin office, Amy Lombardi, you’ll have the chance to soak in a TON of information about getting your music heard worldwide and the collection of sales revenue and songwriter royalties. Because if you’re writing, performing and trying to distribute your music independently, it never hurts to be armed with knowledge!
Classes will be about an hour, and will also include a Q&A session afterwards. Laptops will be available for registrants to use during the interactive portion of class, or you are welcome to bring your own. Seating is based on an RSVP/first-come, first-serve basis, so if you live in the Austin area, make sure to sign up!
