The Network Meeting for DIY musicians is back for a third year in a row! In this Do It Yourself (DIY) Network session, we are going to unlock local know-how for world music artists around the globe.

Our mission is to make the business side of their musical enterprises more professional and more enjoyable by sharing knowledge and experience around the do’s and don’ts of DIY marketing and production: creating professional promotional videos on little or no budget; organising your own showcase festival; booking shows; understanding financial and legal issues; and creating and sustaining global networks.

We invite all WOMEX music professionals (and especially DIY artists!) to join this Network Meeting.
