Plug & Play Sessions: Volume V

Wed May 30, 18:00 - Wed May 30, 23:00

14 Hope Street


We all know admin as an entertainer is quite the tedious task, and a lot of entertainers - be they musicians or comedians - could do with a little more know-how on some aspects that come with being an entertainer. We're talking about the how-to's of admin, crucial things needed in place to make sure you're building a solid foundation, legalities, and a whole realm of things to think of that you may never have considered.
1 | Are you an entertainer? A musician? Comedian? DJ? Vocalist? In a band?
2 | Do you take your sh*t seriously?
3 | Then join us!
Plug & Play Sessions will connect you with people that have essential knowledge you need so you can navigate the entertainment industry like a boss.
In an informal talk setting, you'll get to make instant industry connections and learn what you need to know about a multiplicity of topics, for example selling out your shows, building a following, making your marketing reach further, etc. Keep an eye on the "this edition" tab to see this edition's speakers and topics!

There will also be a showcase space during the event to give a handful of speciality acts a chance to perform a short set, so everyone from other genres and different parts of the industry can see and hear what they're up to. If you would like to perform a speciality act in a showcase slot, please book a ticket, then apply here before midnight on 16 May 2018.
Buy your ticket now to book your spot.

During the event, there will also be a showcase space with limited slots to give selected acts a chance to play a few pieces, so everyone from other genres and the industry can hear what they're up to.

If you would like to play a showcase slot, please book a ticket, then APPLY HERE.

PLEASE NOTE: There are limited slots, and since there has been such a great response to the showcase space, it is not possible for us to offer everyone a slot. As such, we have started taking applications for each edition of the event.
