Below are excerpts from a Reddit AMA I did 6 years ago that I recently stumbled upon. Back then I was working for a management company where I was booking the tours and doing the marketing for 5 bands. Looking back at it, many of my answers still apply today!
Getting into the industry
Q: I am extremely interested in the business side of the music industry. Both from the artist side and the venue side. I have been applying for numerous internships that can help learn about the music industry. Do you have any advice for someone with literally no experience in the music industry trying to get his foot in the door.
