⓵ Day One: Thursday 2nd May 2019
Uganda Museum

1️⃣ Conference One

Topic: The role of Public Relations in the Music Industry

Public Relations for music, is the strategic promotion of a new release, tour, or other Music related news to the public via the media. People who work in PR liaise between Labels and/or Musicians and the media to try and get album reviews, profiles of the Band(s), group(s) or sole Artists reviews of live shows and so on. Many music PR companies have a dedicated focus—for instance, they only do print media or only digital.

Some PR firms have an even more pointed focus on college and club or radio promotion where they work to get an on air plug with a popular radio station geared at a specific market, or they only do online promotions and social media work with key online influencers. However, some Artists do not think this area is valuable to them or they don’t know what it actually means or what is involve. This session will therefore focus on the role of Public relations for an Artist and the expectations from the PR Firm or Publicists hired.
