Summary:
The dream of every budding musician is the idea of life on the road; burning down the highway in a van filled with instruments, a few records and dirty tees to sell at the merch desk, maybe a few beers and your bandmates. In 2018, is this idea a reality? Or has it always been just a fantasy?

In this workshop, the realities of modern touring will be laid out for discussion from the perspective of the touring artist, along with the variety of industry professionals involved in making a tour successful, profitable and if not financially profitable, worthwhile in the long term.
