SUPPORTING INDEPENDENT ARTISTS

The Great Escape

The Great Escape, founded in 2006, is a major three-day festival held annually in Brighton, England. The Great Escape consists of a music industry convention, which is attended by over 3,000 delegates, as well as showcase featuring roughly 850 emerging artists and bands across 40 venues throughout the city.

This year, TuneCore was proud to step forward and become a sponsor of The Great Escape. As part of our partnership, TuneCore worked with The Great Escape to present CMU:DIY, a dedicated 'DIY Day' designed to educate, guide, and support independent artists and emerging musicians. TuneCore is always looking for exciting and innovative ways to engage directly with the independent artists community, and through our partnership with The Great Escape, TuneCore was afforded the opportunity to do just that.

Artist Spotlight

I've got gold records and produced for lots of major label artists and major label releases and I make more money through TuneCore's platform than I do from the majors. Its system allows you the freedom of releasing music on your own schedule and without the red tape associated with dealing with a label. And the fans can tell and they support that.

The coolest thing about Broad Shoulders is that we did it with TuneCore….we wanted to put it out on Apple Music, Tidal, Spotify, but we didn’t want to sign to a label. I didn’t want to give up my rights to my masters, so we found out about TuneCore and they helped us with distribution. Tunecore is there for any independent artist.
Taylor Bennet
TuneCore have been a massive support taking my project on, so that I could get on with making my music and getting out there… I’m loving the independence and freedom of doing it 100% my way.
