Listening Sessions isn’t like a normal event – we don’t aim to make any money from this, it’s a labour of love and something we do to help push the electronic music scene in Birmingham forward. Our grass roots ethos and determination to help artists progress and gain the recognition they deserve is one of the things we feel makes our brand unique, and part of the reason we have been so well received this far.
However, everything comes at a price, and unfortunately we have to generate some cold hard cash in order to cover our overheads. On top of charging an extremely modest door fee (which, truth be told, barely covers the cost of the venue and door staff for the nights), we need some kind of income to fund things like promotional materials and hosting for the website.
We aren’t expecting something for nothing however – on top of a range of merchandise in the works and a small netlabel which we will use to promote the artists who come and showcase their music, we have decided to sell small, unobtrusive banner ads on the website.
The cost of this advertising will vary based on demand, banner size and how well we feel your brand suits our ethos – so if you’d like to advertise to a focused audience of local music lovers, then please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be in touch shortly.
