WE ARE LOOKING FOR BANDS TO PLAY LONDON VENUES

WE WORK IN A VERY SIMPLE WAY:

WE KNOW THAT BANDS KNOW THEIR FANBASE

WE KNOW THAT BANDS LOVE TO PLAY LIVE

WE HAVE FOUND A WAY WHERE BANDS CAN PLAY LIVE, BE PAID FOR EVERY PERFORMANCE AND BUILD ON THEIR FANBASE.

IT'S SIMPLE REALLY

WE CAN CATER FOR BANDS OF ALL LEVELS AND ALL GENRES, WE SIMPLY COMBINE YOUR LEVEL AND GENRE WITH THE LEVELS OF OTHER BANDS IN YOUR GENRE, FIND A VENUE AND PUT ON A GREAT SHOW.

HOW IT WORKS

MANY PROMOTERS SIMPLY HIRE BANDS FOR THEIR SHOWS, PAY THE BANDS A FEE AND THEN KEEP ALL THE TAKINGS, GENERALLY EARNING THEM TWICE/THREE TIMES (OR MORE) WHAT ALL THE BANDS HAVE BEEN PAID.

WE DON'T!!

WE DISCUSS YOUR ABILITY TO PULL A CROWD, ONCE THIS IS ESTABLISHED WE LOOK AT OTHER BANDS IN YOUR GENRE AND THE VENUES AVAILABLE, WORK A WAY TO FILL THAT VENUE AND THEN START PLANNING THE SHOW.

AS AN EXAMPLE, LET'S CONSIDER AN AVERAGE VENUE IN LONDON -

THE VENUE HOLDS 500 PEOPLE, AND WE ARE LOOKING FOR 3 BANDS TO PLAY IT. BAND 'A' FEELS THEY CAN PULL A CROWD OF 200-250 PEOPLE, BAND 'B' FEELS THEY CAN PULL A CROWD OF 125-150 PEOPLE AND BAND 'C' FEELS THEY CAN PULL A CROWD OF 75-100 PEOPLE.

LET'S ASSUME THAT THE VENUE HIRE IS £500 AND TICKET PRINTING WILL COST AROUND £100, SO THAT'S £600 IN TOTAL.

NOW THE INTERESTING BIT...

BAND 'A' WILL CONTRIBUTE £300 - FOR THIS THEY RECEIVE THE HEADLINE SLOT AND 40% OF THE TICKETS (200 tickets) TO SELL THEMSELVES. AT AN ENTRY FEE OF £8, THOSE TICKETS ARE WORTH £1600 TO THE BAND.

BAND 'B' WILL CONTRIBUTE £200 - FOR THIS THEY RECEIVE THE MAIN SUPPORT SLOT AND 25% OF THE TICKETS (125 tickets) TO SELL THEMSELVES. AT AN ENTRY FEE OF £8, THOSE TICKETS ARE WORTH £1000 TO THE BAND.

BAND 'C' WILL CONTRIBUTE £100 - FOR THIS THEY RECEIVE THE OPENING SUPPORT SLOT AND 15% OF THE TICKETS (75 tickets) TO SELL THEMSELVES. AT AN ENTRY FEE OF £8, THOSE TICKETS ARE WORTH £600 TO THE BAND.

THE REMAINING 20% OF THE TICKETS (100 tickets) WILL BE SOLD BY M-LIVE AS PROMOTERS, AND IS OUR ONLY SOURCE OF INCOME FROM THE SHOW. WE BELIEVE THIS IS FAIR, AS WE ARE ARRANGING AND ADVERTISING THE SHOW, AND WE NEED TO EARN AS A BUSINESS.

WHY DOES THIS WORK?

WITH BANDS CONTRIBUTING TO SHOW COSTS, THEY ARE MORE ACTIVE IN PROMOTING THE SHOW THEMSELVES, THUS ENSURING GOOD CROWDS.

WITH BANDS SELLING THEIR OWN TICKETS, THEY EARN MORE FROM THE SHOW THAN THEY WOULD IF PAID A SET FEE.

WITH FANS BUYING TICKETS DIRECTLY FROM THE BAND, BOOKING FEES CAN BE AVOIDED.

PROMOTERS ARE NOT TAKING MOST OF THE PROCEEDS FROM THE SHOW, THE BANDS ARE.

WITH A GOOD CROWD IN PLACE, YOUR MUSIC IS EXPOSED TO MORE PEOPLE... THUS BUILDING YOUR FANBASE.

THE VENUE BENEFITS FROM THE GOOD CROWD, MORE DRINKS BROUGHT ETC...

SO BASICALLY, IT WORKS BECAUSE EVERYONE WINS!!!
