UK Media – Strategies for success

Last year UK music industry contributed 4.4 billion to the country’s economy and delivered 2.5 billion in music exports. In comparison to the size of the sector, UK music media is relatively small. Competition to get reviews in print or on top blogs is fierce. Same applies to getting even spot play on BBC radio stations. Is it possible for an independent European artist without a significant budget to get coverage in the UK? Which magazines, blogs or radio station do you target? How do you choose your PR? What are the most important media trends in 2017? Anastasia will discuss what you can (and can’t) expect to achieve with little help and a limited budget.
Participants can send in their biographies, press releases to get a direct feedbacks on them.
