The new monthly manager meetups are a monthly event for members which include an intro from MMF with pressing news, industry updates, open discussion with members and feedback, followed by 2 to 4 short presentations, from interesting music companies you may want to work with. There is also a networking session and drinks to conclude.
The Artists and Manager Awards will return in November 2020. The Awards, presented by the MMF and the FAC, celebrate creativity and innovation in the music industry.
Tribes are run by our members in their local areas and allow you to grow your music network in your community. We currently have Tribes running in Birmingham and Manchester. Both Tribes run social events every few months with a performance from a local unsigned artist, and have recently started curating panels and running Q&A’s with top industry experts. If you would like to see a Tribe set up in your area please email firstname.lastname@example.org
