Bandustry is a music initiative focussed on giving South African musicians the tools needed to build their business/brand and the industry holistically. Each month the organizers bring industry professionals to the stage to discuss specific topics whereafter the audience gets a chance to chat to the experts themselves. Bandustry thus becomes an informal meeting place for any one in the music industry to network, learn and grow.
On the 27th of June, a Wednesday evening, there will be a get together at The Bioscope Independent Cinema in Maboneng to tackle the topic of the night: How to Approach a Business for Sponsorship.
The evening starts at 7pm just next door to the theatre in their intimate restaurant and craft beer bar, Chalkboard. Here the official guest has the chance to network with other musicians, entrepreneurs and industry professionals all while enjoying the sweet sounds of a young, up and coming, Pretoria four piece, Zen Garden. Just before 8pm there will be a move into the theatre and settle down for the talk, with the evening concluding with an open Q&A.
This talk is not to be missed as these experts will give you the insights on how to grow your band through business collaborations.
Join this event at 7pm at Chalkboard and The Bioscope Independent Cinema, 286 Fox St.
