Presenting the third and final workshop in our releasing music mini-series hosted by indie distribution specialist Kameil Sattar.
Kameil Sattar currently works at Cargo Records, an independent music distribution company based in Fulham, London as well as being a board member at Saffron.
In this session, Kameil will be looking at what makes a successful release campaign, by comparing two case campaign studies – one from an established artist and one from an up-and-comer. She’ll close by presenting a round-up of retail opportunities. This will be a highly interactive session with lots of time to ask questions so don’t miss this brilliant opportunity to receive personalised advice.
