The Anatomy of Amanda F*cking Palmer
Wed. 13 March
12:30pm – 1:30pm
Convention Center,
Room 16AB
Nicole St. Jean

Look at the inner workings of a multi-million dollar global recording, touring and merchandise business that is 100% artist controlled. Amanda Palmer raised a record-breaking $1,192,793 on Kickstarter from 24,883 fans -- an average of nearly $50 per person -- to fund her album "Theatre is Evil" last May. A few months later, pre-sale tickets for her worldwide tour sold out for every city in hours, and her album debuted on the Billboard Top 10. Learn how her team managed the album release campaign. From the wild successes to hair-pulling deadlines to the inevitable mistakes, Palmer and her management and business partners will speak frankly on what it takes to run such a ground-breaking business at this level.

Build a Profitable D2F Business

Fri. 15 March
11am – 12pm

Convention Center,
Room 17B

Parker Todd Brooks

The Direct-To-Fan model can generate revenue, but at the end of the day, many well-intentioned campaigns lose money or barely break even. Explore strategies that artists and managers can use to run more profitable D2F campaigns.

Rogue Ticketing
Fri. 15 March
3:30pm – 4:30pm
Convention Center,
Room 17B
Bob Moczydlowsky

Artist ticketing and scalping are hot button topics, but is artist ticketing truly possible? Many venues have exclusives with ticketing giants, so acts like Louis CK opting to do their own ticketing face major challenges. LCD Soundsystem expressed similar anger toward Ticketmaster after tickets to their final MSG concert sold out and were scalped instantly. Did they have another viable ticketing option? We'll explore both sides using scalable, traditional ticketing companies vs. going rogue.

Artists.MTV showcase with Jim James
Tues. 12 March

The Control Room Details

It’s only March, but many are already putting Jim James’ solo debut Regions of Light and Sound of God in the running for their year-end lists, making the bearded My Morning Jacket messiah one of this year’s hottest SXSW acts. So who better than a indie-country-folk-soul hybrid like James to headline an event hosted by the MTV/VH1/CMT trio? The sister music channels (who all share Viacom as a parent company) have announced the details of an SXSW showcase of their new Artists.MTV platform, including an impressive lineup of performers. James will get top billing, with NYC indie-rockers Guards and LA’s Youngbood Hawke playing the two slots before him. Other acts including ZZ Ward, Elle King, Ashley Monroe, and Striking Matches are also scheduled to perform.
