Our inaugural 2017 series features local, early career and established artists who share a passion for the music of our time. With your support, BackStage Music will create a framework for the curation, promotion and presentation of innovative, challenging and exciting new music to share with you - our dynamic and engaged community!
We need your support because what you see in the 2017 concert program is just the beginning of creating a stimulating music culture in Sydney. BackStage Music is a new model for presenting music that aims to reduce the risk for musicians - assisting artists in the 'backstage' work and infrastructure that is required to put on events.
The BackStage Music business model:
-Raise the funds to cover the basic costs of presenting a concert series.
-Curate an exciting series of concerts
-Build an audience
-Pay artists ticket sales as income
With your support BackStage Music will cover the following costs:
-Ticketing and Promotion
-Public Liability insurance
-artists will be paid for their performance with 100% of ticket sales.
Vital to the success of the Backstage business model is the building of audience capacity through sharing networks between all artists in the series - creating an active community of listeners and followers of living music in Sydney. This is a grassroots model where the artists work together to promote their own work plus the work of their colleagues.
