Tour Life Workshop with Katrina Lopes
Tour Life is about a lot more than what happens on the bus, the airports, instagram passport pictures and the groupies; it's truly about the finances, the strategic planning and how to organize your way through different cities. With the help of Katrina Lopes, this workshop will guarantee lessons in tour development, how to stay healthy, how to avoid janky promoters and how to keep the money you make in your pocket at the end of the day. You'll learn things like how to organize a tour, as well as how to establish a booking rate as a new artist. This workshop is all about the ins and outs of Tour Life.
