The main goal as an artist’s agent is to represent artists towards programmers, concert halls, festivals, etc.
Since programmers are coping with many challenges in the current situation, a different approach might be necessary, and this might influence the work of artists agents on the long term. This session shares ideas and experiences from colleagues from all over the world about positioning themselves towards programmers today. The session is open to all artists agents, artists, and programmers.
