How to present yourself online and book more gigs!

The covid-19-crisis has affected musicians tremendously. At the moment it is still unsure when live music will be an option again. That doesn’t mean musicians are forced to stand still. In this workshop, Maaike van Steenis and Jan Flubacher, will focus on your online presentation as a musician. How can you present yourself digitally to bookers and programmers? What kind of information do they want? How do you get them interested? How do you make sure you stand out?

Maaike and Jan will provide plenty of insights and tips for a strong online presentation. This will help musicians to make sure bookers and programmers will remember them, even when they have no possibilities to see them live. A distinctive online presentation can tempt programmers to book an act in the future. It’s something you can work on during the lockdown.
