Lay the foundations for global success by building your band in the UK. The UK is a key stepping stone for bands wanting to cross from the USA to Europe and from Europe to the USA - this panel will try and offer road-tested strategies for success tailored to the UK market. Success in the UK can be a fantastic springboard to global recognition - The Killers, Kings of Leon, Scissor Sisters, Fleet Foxes and Vampire Weekend have used the UK as an incubator before going global, could this session help you be next? We'll look at case studies of what previously successful bands have done and how they achieved what they have. We'll try to provide ideas for those looking at taking their band to one of the most fertile and fast-changing musical environments in the world. Topics covered will include: suggestions of key tastemakers not to miss when planning your campaign in the UK (radio stations, blogs, venues, people, magazines and sites to try); Licensing opportunities and choices; do's and don’ts from professionals who've been there and done it; different revenue streams to consider.
