FAQs / I’m an artist and I can’t find any paid gigs – surely free gigs are better than nothing?

We understand that a lot of artists undertake unpaid work whilst launching their career and building a fanbase. Unfortunately gigs at grassroots level don’t often come with the offer of a guaranteed fee. However, even small gigs can generate enough money to ensure that both the artist and promoter/venue are fairly remunerated. By co-promoting shows, artists can start to make money from gigs at an early stage in their career. For further information and advice read the MU’s Fair Play Guide: Fair Play Guide.
