The Artist:Entrepreneur programme from the Featured Artists Coalition and CMU:DIY is a series of artist-led events that provide important information and practical advice to help early-stage artists build a long-term career and sustainable business around their music.

At each edition of the A:E Day, CMU:DIY presents a series of A:E Guides, helping early-career artists navigate and understand the music business.

Here you can download the slides that accompany these presentations – plus three other useful guides that were mentioned during the sessions:

Music Copyright Explained is a beginner’s guide to music copyright and how it makes money – from CMU and the UK’s Intellectual Property Office.

The Fan Data Guide provides an overview of the different kinds of data that artists use to inform and target their marketing, and grow and understand their fanbases – from CMU and the Music Managers Forum.

The Deals Guide provides an overview of the different kinds of deals artists can do with record labels and music distributors around their recorded music – from CMU and the Music Managers Forum.
