When your career is about to take off, it is undeniably a very good idea to hire a manager to take care of your business, allowing you to focus on making music, connecting with your fan base and delivering killer live shows. But what sort of person makes a good manager? And what should they be doing for you these days? Or maybe you could grit your teeth and decide to go it alone; producing the music, choosing your gigs, negotiating gig fees and performing whilst also running a label and keeping your social media up to date? ADE Next brings together a group of people that do it both ways, so that you can make an informed choice about the next phase of your career.
